Mel, thanks very much, all the sketches are inspiring.

Already swapped a kit body and will look similar to your long wheel base sketches. Pretty close to your 2-15-91 second row sketch.

Planning to build a dune buggy version of the Sterling kit car on a standard Beetle type 1 IRS frame. The Sterling body kit will retain the original raked windshield piece but loose the pop top, will have a buggy soft top and roll bar. Thanks again, please keep the concepts coming.

Some one asked if I has done any sketches for a stock wheelbase VW .So here are a few I found. I didn't do to many. My thinking was that there were a lot of dune buggies that could use a kit car style body.so I did more of them for dune buggies..

Mels dune buggy sketches

I have been trying to do these on a monthly basis..So far I'm not doing to good.. Some of the sketches in the past were not suited to well to be called a dune buggy, but these should be more suitable

More for this month.. These would be for an 80 inch VW pan.. But the designs are for a kit car. My thought was that some of you would be tired of eating sand by now..

Another group of sketches for this month.. Some would be more suitable for a kit car. All of these are for an 80 inch wheelbase VW belly pan.. I live in SWLA so I wanted to create a design that would give full coverage..

I can't believe how fast the time is passing me by...It's been a little over one month since the last post.. I was thinking as far back as 1991 that the world needed another dune bug design.. All together I did over 500 of these thumbnail sketches up until 2008.. So I think it's time to move on and let someone else take over..
