Here is a pic of my Mk 1 GP SWB buggy.

The specs at the moment are :

  • It's running a 1500cc tidy motor, with no cheap Taiwanese chrome add ons going through a 1200 box.
  • Rolling stock are western wheel slots, 14's at front and 15's at back.
  • Inside you've got little black bucket seats and a six point cage.

Much inspired by the Manx page, my plans for next year are:

  • banded white solids with hubcaps,
  • some rare Empi bits,
  • 8-track player,
  • simpson lap-belts,
  • lower power roof
  • and finally a single chrome rollover bar

Cheers,
