Harold writes :Here are some pictures of our newly acquired buggy.
Bought on the day after my 40th birthday (friends call it my mid life crisis) The buggy was bought for our family to go back to the oregon dunes where we used to ride quads. Thought it would be fun to putt around in a simple buggy. Needless to say the buggy we bought is alot more than we anticipated.
What was supposed to sit outside now sits in the garage! I understand I am the 3rd owner, the original owner did a very nice job in putting this buggy together. The 2nd owner gave us this info. The pan is a 61, motor is a stock 72 1600 dual port w/weber progressive and tuned exhaust. The body kit is unknown though I am sure from what I've read it is not a Manx (anyone recognize the kit). The buggy has Cal Master wheels with 165/80-15s on the front and 225/15s on the back, six point cage, vw high back buckets, empi short shifter, am/fm cassette, and a winch in the front.
It is a kick to drive around on the street and gets alot of attention!
Thumbs up from old timers to the teenagers. I plan to join the Manx club as soon as possible!
