Saw this one at Bugorama today. It was just recently finished by Frank of Gardnerville, NV. Love the color, its bench seat and the flat tank he mounted beneath the cargo bed

Your grandfather owned a pretty cool buggy, cool paint, very cool wheels and bias ply tires and some nice accessories

The engine cage is a Hadley Transvair adapter.

The CNC slave has a 7/8 inch bore. The Wilwood master has a 5/8 inch bore. My main concern is if I will have sufficient movement at the release lever. It seems to be the most recommended combo so I gu ...
