Default 4 seat tube buggy build.











Big tires, big axles, Big motor, auto trans, cool T-case, nice seats, and a few tubes.

I think he's shooting for a 104" wheelbase. The front axle is somewhat close to where it will end up the rear axle is no where near where it will be so it is making it look a little long and funny.

If you are talking about his old buggy, it has long been sold.

If you are talking about the stuff in the background in his garage, those are "customers"

The only thing in the garage is my piece of shit right now.

Bryans buggy is in the other garage.

The red buggy is long since sold and this buggy might actually be sold already too

Will be watching for updates, would like to build a 4 or 3 seat tube buggy with in the next year or two. Plan on doing most the fitting myself but have been looking for someone local to possibly do the chasis.
