If you’re an OnAllCylinders frequenter, you probably know we’re shameless fans of the Hoonigan team. Please bear with us while we fawn over these rascals some more.

Last month, we reported on Hoonigan’s “Scumbug”—a 1973 Volkswagen Beetle that the team found in 2017 on Craigslist and purchased for only $2,500 with the intent of converting it into a legit Baja bug. Prior to the 2018 SEMA Show, the Hoonigan team began to tear down and rebuild the vehicle in preparation for the 2018 Baja 1000, documenting the process in a series of truly hilarious videos now available on its YouTube channel.

Our friends at Summit Racing recently partnered with Hoonigan as the team’s official parts provider for several of its project vehicles, including the Scumbug.

Check out each episode below. If you don’t laugh at anything you see, well…we’re concerned for you.
