Glenn reports :
in the sixtys my father built this buggy (pic enclosed). I was in ninth
grade. He built it for slalom and street. We put in a 1388cc, dual weber VW
so we wouldn't be in the same class as Don Wilcox and Ted Trevor's corvair
powered cars. As I recall the gold metalflake body was the third off the bolt
on the pan mold at Bruce's shop. The mechanicals were completed at Crown Mfg.
in Costa Mesa with the help of Ted. We were very successful throughout the
sixties and I still occasionally take it out to the autocrosses here in the
east. It is still a blast to drive, very quick. After an engine blow up we
increased the cc's to 1835 and have since changed over to dual Kadron carbs.
The car has 13 inch chrome wheels with Hoosier racing slicks all around.
