Some of those pics look like 16" 356 wheels in the front.  Could I be crazy?

A bit off topic but have a Revell model that builds either the Inch Pincher baja or a cal look bug.
Will get round to building it one day Wink

Thats the one Grin
Not really sure what they go for, not that i would sell mine anyway.
Scale 48 IDA's, extractor exhaust etc will make for a cool model when i get round to it.

Very cool video!
The Baja 1000 is one of those events that every car guy has to do at least once in their lives. I was lucky enough to go along in 2011 and help pit crew for a team that won their class. Crazy good time!
