I built my first fiberglass dune buggy in 1972 using a 1964 VW pan and drive line. As money was tight during college I was only able to keep this car for 2 years before selling it. Years later when my daughter wanted a VW Bug during high school I again became interested in VW's while reconditioning this 1970 for her. She damaged the front end and I found it cheaper to buy a complete car rather than just the parts to fix it. With this 1969 VW I started my new glass bodied dune buggy. This project took me over two years to complete but I am having a great time driving it now that it is finally done. Still have a couple minor glitches to work out but the car came out looking great and does draw a lot of looks when it is on the road.
