Anyone know of a buggy or VW club here in Chicago area? I just joined a Triumph car club for my TR3-A, but I would like to find a buggy club, so I can find some other owners to cruise with, once the snow melts of course!

Hey bpritchert87, I too live in Oswego. What are the odds I'd find someone in my own back yard. I'm still in the middle of building my buggy, but I hope to be finished before good weather.

I'm building a street legal fiberglass manx style dune buggy. The chassis and body are from Berrien Buggies. It's still in a million pieces right now, but I'd like to show you it if your interested. I'd like to see yours too, e-mail me at [email protected]

Mine is currently in the rebuild state you can see some pics of it in my gallery....I had it running about 2 years ago and actually had it at the Bug Fest show at Union Grove. But of course a buggy is never finished so I tore it all down and started rebuilding! I should be done by the time the snow melts this year...just looking for people to cruise with in the area!
