What Is Your Dream Buggy? Post Pics & Build Details!

Recommended Posts

right now, if I could have a dream buggy, it would be this one.

A buddy built 2 from scratch. He obviously hinted at an "alumicraft" platform, but the attention to detail is better than any car I have ever seen.

I don't have the details, and the owner isn't a gd.com regular. CRB did the aluminum work (wich is were I saw it the most) All I can say is, if you see this car in the dunes, please take time to look at it closely.

The opening hood impressed me the most. (the fit and finish was nicer than any luxury car I have ever seen)

Could not dream anything better than the ones we currently have...

Is that the Penhall car Desert Rat Ray put together? If so seen it being built so bad a$$!

Yep, that is the one. We have added some things since then, like the locking boxes on top, and another set of rear lights on the roof rack. Switching to 4.0" King bypasses on the back as we speak.

Mike, was this yours?

Funco looks great, Goo NEVER drove it like that!

That Alumicraft was the closest thing to perfection I've owned to date , but this new Funco ain't bad :sraptor:

That is the nicest 3D body design I have seen so far except on the new Funco - clean and dimensioned just right - not overblown huge humped and fat like a few lately - the roof line is also great - Very nice looking car - thanks for sharing that one - I want to see more...

I get to drive mine! The only thing I need is about 200HP more.

A spare transmission would probably be on that list as well I would imagine.

I have a few on my mind.

2 seat sand car, Funco like what Rolltheyo' had built. 4 seat sand car, SCU.

Desert car, definitely an Alumicraft 4 seater. 425 CBM with a whipple on it, backed by a 5 speed albins and a convertor. Full tin and engine covers. 2 seat desert car, Racer truck bodied car, came engine and tin setup.

Now I just need them magic 6 numbers to hit.

A blower would take care of the HP and now that I know Albins trans are not bulletproof with low HP, I will pull it out every 3 years or 4000 miles.

Which ever comes first! :igar:
