Phoenix Bugorama '96 - the Baja selection

Good News!

Hot VW's magazine published the news that the Phoenix Bugorama will return to the all-VW format! Yipee! I was not impressed by the inclusion of all 4-cylinder vehicles last year, especially since they lost their accreditation for the VW points challenge. Many of the best race cars quit showing up.

Phoenix Bugorama '96 was far inferior to past bugoramas - the organizers opened the event to all four-cylinder vehicles. This meant that the lowrider-pickup crowd was out in force, and the dragstrip was full of little front-wheel-drive squeaking burnout noises.

However, the baja bugs were lookin' good! Many of the bajas are old standards, seen at almost every event, but it's still a pleasure to see 'em.
