Well I went out and bought my self a street legal, 4 speed, 1973 vw 1600cc rail buggy. The engine starts rights up, and everything is in working condition. It only needs a new exhaust, due to the fact that it looks horrible, and it also needs a muffler. It is WAY to loud.
I bought it with intentions of it being a show "car", that I could take to car shows and ride around the city with it, however I want still want it to be able to swap the tires and have an offroad beast. So thats how its going to be set up.
Well heres a pretty bad pic of how it looked last night.
Today I installed
oil pressure gauge
blinker warning lights on mirrors
repainted most of the black parts
installed an upper rear tail light
I ordered a chrome engine kit and a new exhaust to start off.
What Im Doing in the near future
new steering wheel
new diamond plate flooring
new seat covers
possibly new paint
1600cc Single Port engine
33" rear Tires
top speed around 90-95
4 head lights
4 speed manual
Weighs around 1000-1400lbs
Orginally made from a vw beetle
Any comments and ideas would be appreciated.
