There is a thread for the Bajas why not one for the Tubes and fiberglass models ?

Show me your cars! I want to see what everyone drives. How often do you drive it? Is it Street Legal? Where do you ride (if off road)?


here is mine.
I just got it so I havent done any real riding yet. It is street legal.

Here's mine. Just got it a few months ago. Street Legal.

Just installed a new 1915. Upcoming winter projects include...chassis/cross webbing supports in the front, front bumper, new single piece floor pan, new wiring & gauges, and dual Dellorto 40 DRLA's.

Here is mine. Street legal in Texas. I mostly ride on my property, but do hit the local trails. Mostly rock, gravel and some mud. I just bought a 411 to take the motor out of. This winter I plan on doing the type 4 motor, rebuild and install Racerunner coil overs for the rear, front bumper, new seats, and rear tires. And a pic of my daily driver :D

Those seats look comfy! Whats your take on them? Where can I find them?

Toby from MO Mon Oct 26, 2009 5:29 pm

Their high back poly seats...nothing special. You can find these at most any VW/Buggy parts dealer.

As far as comfort goes...so, so I guess. A buddy of mine has fiberglass seats and though the ppoly may be slightly more comfortable I wouldn't say it would determine my choice between the two. For what it's worth both the wife and kids want to buy memory foam to place behind the seat covers.

The down side of the poly seats are they sit higher due to way they are molded/fastened in the buggy. The up side is they don't require back support. You'll notice I don't have the cross bar behind the front seats you were asking about in your other thread.

Those seats are comfortable until you start jumping your car. I have extra padding in mine and my back gets pile drived in those seats. If you're jumping then suspension seats all the way.

This is mine, a sand only car. Updated the baby Webers to 44 IDFs recently.

ZARJDR Mon Oct 26, 2009 7:22 pm

I have a IRS to install this winter.

Fair weather daily driver. Built Ford 2.0, bus 3 rib (looking for an east coast freeway flyer), cut/turn front end, cutting brakes

Olmer2,
Who made that body? Is it an old Funco car?

I believe it is an older funco. It was titled and VINed in AZ as a 98 ford homebuilt. But, looking at the hood, it has the flat angled fiberglass nose like the older Funcos. I have yet to find one like it.
