This is a pretty cool racer, especially if you like Pepsi or collect Pepsi collectibles.

This is not your grandma’s VW.
Vintage 1980’s Chenowth Magnum racing buggy with rich history. It was officially sponsored by Pepsi. Norris Racing campaigned it in the 1980s-90s NCPS/SODA short course stadium series predecessor to TORC/MWSCL. Then the buggy was bought by Alvarez Racing and lived in Mexico for NORRA desert racing. I bought and shipped it back from Mexico.

    I’m late night searching on ewillys and come across my VW buggy listing. Puzzled, I sit here for way too long trying to figure out how this made it onto the site. Then I remembered writing about possible Jeep trades. Thanks for the laugh!

    This was your opening sentence “$10,000 or open for trades. Corvette, Mazda RX7, Willys Jeep.” … I imagine it was the “Willys Jeep” reference that caught my attention. And, it was probably a day with few listings, so I thought I’d mix it up 🙂
