If you are going start building Buggy's every winter, I want to put a deposit down for next winter.

Looks great so far

I'm realy starting to like the looks of the B and C pillars on buggies like that. Nice.

Is that seating position final?

For some reason I always think of a '78-'79 Trans Am when I see "southern style" buggies like that....some I like, some I don't....I have a feeling I will like this one.

Yes it looks farther back than it is as far as comfort goes. It does feel like a cockpit sitting in it ,great for ride maybe a little work getting in and out.
