Image Bruce with me and my new Kick Out at the Classic. 
This is a rebody of my original dune buggy that my Dad built for the family in 1970 when I was a 13 years old.

Hey Joseph, I just wanted to add that your car showed a lot of careful planning, followed with great execution.  For those of you who haven't seen it in person, this buggy is drop dead gorgeous!  It practically blinds you to look at it:-)  

Great, great job Joseph!

As per usual you did a fantastic job. I'm sure your Dad would be proud. I hope you bring it to Big Bear.

Thanks for all the great comments.
Yes it was a fun car to build. Did take me a longer to put together then I had planned.
It is more for use on the street, the Manxter DualSport it what I use in the dirt.
I only put 3 miles on it before loading it on the back of the truck to take it to the Classic. I have driven it about 50 miles now and sorting out the small stuff.
Did find a set of Berg intake manifolds at the swap meet. They are shorter than the CB manifolds on it now. Had to use shorter aircleaners and remove the velocity stacks to fit inside the body. With the Berg manifolds will be able to reinstall the tall air cleaners and velocity stacks.
I am planning on taking it to Big Bear next month.
Tom let me know when you want to come over and see it. I also have the 3 piece top if you want to look at one.
