Baja Bug con Cuernos

I shot this in San José del Cabo about 15 years ago. You have to know and love the real Los Cabos — the people, the tropical desert, the ranchos, the beaches — to appreciate how perfect this bug is for the area.

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers. You can check out videos (one with over 450,000 views) on Lloyd by doing a search on YouTube:

  1. I have a on/off road Volkswagen based 1969 Meyers Manx on a 1957 VW pan, shortend 5 1/2″, to acommodate the fiberglass body.The transaxle was re-geard limiting it to top speed at 55 mph. I did the transaxle gearing limiting it to 55-60 MPH, One the highway going over 65mph, the front tends to lift and wander. With a insulated custom bag put where a back seat would be, it is ideal gor picking up odds and ends at the market..
