You guys are just pulling our legs -- them things don't run -- -- all we see is thing things parked -- --

I bet they're pushed other here then pushed over there -- --

Besides we know ol' Grandma can't hoist his leg up high enuff to get into one of them things!! Even if he did get some forklift to get him into it,,, They would need to cut the car apart and use the jaws of life to get him OUT!!!!








Gotcha Grammy

Compression King!! I love driving the buggy... Motor is awesome and very responsive. Buggy exceeded my expectations. I never seen the oil temperature soar over 185 degrees driving. I usually put put in between 2,000 and 3,000 RPM. I will soon get some footage hopefully this weekend. I just gotta raise the front up maybe a inch or two. This past Sunday I went in her belly and call 3rd and 4th. I was going so fast and G force was incredible. One of my co-workers said... I disappeared into thin air.. LOL

Hey fellas. I'm enjoying this dune buggy as I drive through town and to my elementary school. The kids goes nuts when I bring it. lol. I have a few flicks I will trying download on here. But I want to put some blows on a few guys here locally. lol... Currently.. I just need to raised the front end of the buggy, readjust the brakes, perhaps just purchase a new Master Cylinder. Engine is sweet. I couldn't ask for anything better. The motor response is incredible.

Are you an elementary school teacher?
I'm asking because I'm a retired elementary school teacher and I can just imagine how excited the kids would have been when they saw your buggy.
