Humble Baja Beetle Wants To Be The Toughest Truck

Baja Beetles may be the best cars in the world. Lift them up high and they can conquer anything!

This little Baja Beetle entered an event at Montana Raceway Park for “Tough Trucks and Monster Trucks” and amusingly held its own. Monster trucks rule and all, but everybody loves a Beetle.


It wasn’t just excellent when catching air, either. The Little Beetle That Could was excellent in the turns as well, easily executing some sweet drifts on the dirt course.


Bonus: at around 21 minutes into the same video, there’s a little white beater Ford Tempo that attempts the course as well. It also rules, even if it doesn’t leap as gracefully as the Baja.

The fact that he didn’t finish his run really bugs me.
