Michael Squier is a filmmaker and storyteller. In this podcast, we discuss his ambitious film project, The Baja Bug Movie. The project tells the story of the humble VW Beetle and the people who modified them for off-road use.
I met Michael on the NORRA Baja 500 while filming the movie. We recorded our conversation at the Cervezeria Transpeninsular in Ensenada during the NORRA Baja 500 awards party.
To support the completion of the film, check out Michael's Go Fund Me:
"We plan to tell the story of the Baja Bug through the people that
are at the heart of it. We want to include racers, enthusiasts,
builders, fans, and anyone along the way that helps tell the unlikely
story of a small car designed in the 30's that became a
legendary off-road car. We plan to tell the history of baja bugs,
including the first one built and the early off-road racing days and
show the evolution into what they are now.
The story of the Baja bug is one that keeps evolving.
Each generation adds their own touch."
