Great looking buggies! Still don't know what type the blue one is?
And you have a third one I've heard :wink:
Still no clue of what body the blue is, and yes.. I have a third one.

BUT... the blue body is bent badly out of shape AND crashdamaged, the white one is in a poor state, crashdamaged and missing a bonnet as well, but savable. I'm going to combine the two bodies into one...
The pictures are from the ad where I found it on the internet. It has a title and everything...
The engine is shot, the gearbox is in a not so good shape.
The chairs are rubbish, there are a lot of parts missing...
On the upside it has a title, the pan is in excellent condition, the tyres are brand new, the brakes are new, the clutch is new, and on top of that I paid just about what the tyres had cost the previous owner.

Anyways, I have 2 buggies up and running, so I needed a side-project. Whenever it is finished I'll rip the red one apart and rebuild everything on that one. When that one is finished I'll do the blue :)

but hey.. everyone needs a little project now and then :D
Estimated time until it is finished... ~2 yrs.

EDIT: Been contacted if I wanted to buy yet another one, but had to say no since my garage is only 8*6 meters...
€450 for a complete buggy that just needed assembly... A friend bought it instead just to have the same ammount of buggies that I have...

just wanted to show you what has happened at my garage...
started to cut the body in pieces to be able to fit the seats (to wide for the body) and also changed the angle of the rear part... lots of cutting involved....
