OK, check this out. When my girlfriend was a kid, she refered to a VW beetle as a "beaver". So I have a "baja beaver"! That is what we call it. Anyone ever heard a VW beelte nick-named a "beaver"? Ha!

I get lots of attention in my baja. Common question- "Is that a Volkswagon?" Always good compliments. Not many of them around anymore.-especially bajas!

We play this cheezy game called the "Beaver Game". Its kindof like slug bug. You call them out as fast as you can and get points for each according to:

A new bug is a "new beaver" worth 1 point.
An old Type 1 (bug) is an "old beaver" worth 2 points.
A "Bus" is worth 10 points
A "Bus Truck" is worth 15 points
If its red, then you add 5 points. A red one is called "cleaver"

Also they have to be confirmed. If they are not, then no points. We've caught the kids cheeting. Shocked

The highest you can get is 20 points for a "beaver cleaver bus truck". There is one driving around Weatherford Texas. Very Happy

Dealerships, used car lots and shops do not count, and if the beaver lives or works there you cannot call it.

So the bug below is a "New Beaver Cleaver" worth 6 points.
