Bill Hernquist’s ’64 Class 5 Baja Bug, originally built in 1981, was part of the General Tire race team between 1989 and 1992, and landed a number of titles and magazine features. It was brought out from storage, rebuilt, and put back into service for the ’12 NORRA rally. It is powered by a Major Performance 2180cc VW Type I mill mated to a PowerBox VW Bus transaxle. Fox shocks and General red label Grabbers keep it in touch with the track. Unfortunately, mechanical issues resulted in a DNF for the old Bug.
