Was that built on an old EA82 chassis? I see a GL dash inside. Wonder what power plant he's running.

Not sure... :drunk:
Heres another photo I found rolling around in my photo bin. Looks like they were having rear suspension issues and a messed up cv.

IIRC in his thread he said he drove it home like that. Guess firewood works in a pinch when your ride weighs practically nothing. :grin:

Well, assuming that it's Aspen/Alder/Ash or something similar to that with an approximate length of 18 inches and a diameter of 4 inches, it comes out to 1,047,000 pounds per inch :D :horse:

My engineering teachers would be so proud...

That buggy, and the sedan posted above are Bigo96 or something like that, on here. There have been many posts about it, and even a thread all about it somewhere.

Yes it is a completely gutted and shelled EA82..if you look at the next pics you can see the front fender/engine bay core support beams. I remember this thread, I think he EJ'd it.

I have often thought about doing this as well. It would definitely teach me tubing skills.
