I scored a 1977 Scout II in Punta Cabras, Mexico! I was camping during the Baja 500 at about race-mile 280, just north of Ejido Eréndira. Each Baja race is a huge event stretching for hundreds of miles and it lasts for days. We usually head down and find a spot along the race course to camp and watch the different classes of racers fly by: motorcycles, buggies and trophy trucks. This time, we set up camp along a sandy stretch of beach and we had a couple days to kill before the race started. So we rode our dirt bikes and peeled our 4x4s in the sand dunes. The second day, we hired a local Panga fisherman to take us out for reds & rockfish. After catching two coolers full, we were invited to a fish fry at a local pad overlooking Punta Cabras. The house was amazing, owned by an American with roots in Baja. I peered into the garage, and low and behold, there before my eyes was a 1977 Scout II. It was teetering on a few pieces of firewood, no wheels because someone broke into the garage and took them in 2013. It was sitting like that for six years! Long story short, I finally drove down there with a set of wheels and bought it!! The drive back north was slow and steady with one trailer tire going flat over miles of dirt roads before I hit pavement. It was built December 7, 1976, originally Winter White with Wood Grain. Take a look!
