How could you Drive a 1980 Subaru Sambar Legally in USA?

 

Make it Electric!

 

A Company sold 'em already with electric conversion.

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.

Firewood isn't the direction I would have gone for rear shock absorbers :brow:

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:

wonder the spring rate ^

 

classic.

 

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...

I want it. :slobber: Or at least to replicate the decals. :headbang:

 

I have a new old stock set that I'm going to be making reproductions of at some point.

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.

was finally able to grab some pics off my other computer so I'll add some of my favorites. Most are from here over the years.
