Is nice. Are those L-code paint colors? Garnet Rec and Ivory White?

You'll want a drink and healthy snack; it's 1.5 hours long.

I think 'the bug' refers to the racing mind virus. It starts out with Manxes and Bajas, but the middle half is all Class 11 racers. Which tend to finish the Baja 1000 with one or both front fenders missing.

They do finish up with a nod to hill climbing in Oregon City, and a Baja in Germany in front of the Wolfsburg factory.

No subtitles, but the sound track is pretty good.

There were times I lurked about getting a Kombi to turn it into some sort of tiny house on wheels. This beauty comes really close to what could've been a good year-round living quarters on wheels.



I like the way this one is stealthier, even though the underbody water tanks and some body-mounted vents easily give a clue about it being an actual campervan...



A lot of camper Kombis that I have seen recently are fitted with solar panels.

Some of the westie pop tops I saw had hard sides* and looked like a minor extension to the roof. Not sure about sleeping upstairs as my diabetes has me going to bathroom couple times a night.

Cant camp in national forests in bear country with soft sides.
