Any word on your car??? It's strange to see a car and just know that it was built buy the same guy years and years ago. Big and little brother.

I'm still placing good money on this being the car that was built before mine. The one were all the mistakes were done on and tested out on Smile before my car was built then again I could be wrong wrong wrong...

No word from Brandwood yet.

Like I said, I remembered seeing pictures of your car a few years ago and when I saw "The Cow Bug"... I knew it was built right...
"The Prototype" for better things to come..
Not the Big Power model...
Its held up well...
I've tried to check all the welds and rails...
All look good.. No cracks or bends...
The body and pans are still sound too.
Someone did set it on a big rock and pushed up the floor a little
behind the driver's sea, couple of inches up, about the dia. of a basketball. Didn't hit the frame rails , just the floor.
Guss that happens...

Jim does good work, I'm just yanking your chain. Your best bet is to call them. I do not think any one in the shop is too much of an internet type. so the odds of them getting an e-mail are next to none. Ask for Jim Cunningham(I think that is it) he is the owner of Brandwood Cars.

P.S. I have always had Cow seats in my Baja from day one. Scott just did me up on some brand new cow seats a few months ago, real nice.

The two do look alike...

I tried to call Jim @ Brandwood a couple times... Their phone number has changed and the new one, rings & rings then a message the mail box has not been set up.
So, I'll just keep trying.. I guess..

I was going to paint over the Cow Moteif but everywhere we go, In Town or Out In The Woods.. People smile and love the Cow Bug.. So it's going to stay... I'm looking for a cow horn (Moooo) or a way to record and play back through a PA for a horn...

Long Live The Cow Bug (s)

If I recall the KYB Bus shocks work just fine and I think you get 8" to 10" travel from them.

Very Happy Laughing Cool Thanks Az. !!!! Thanks, Jim !!! Thanks, Doug !!!!

>>>>>>> Thanks Everyone !!!!!!!!!!<<<<<<<<<<

So, here's the lastest on the search for the history of
"Cow Bug"

I got hold of Jim at Brandwood today.. As it turns out Az. you were right... Sorta... Jim didn't buid the car, but one of the guys that worked for him did...

Jim rembered the car and that it was origionally Yellow... It was factory Yellow, I can see it in a few places... Anyway it was built by Doug Mac Demrid (Mac Dermid Design, in Scottsdale).
He bought it when he was in High School (1984) as perty much a junker.. He bought the LP beam from Brandwood, asked Jim for a job... Thats how the Cow Bug ended up there all the time.
Doug sold itwhen he opened his own shop in 1995.

It looks like the Bug has pretty much stayed as Doug built it,
from what we can tell...
I asked him a lot of questions... It seems to remained the same as it was way back when he built it...

Same carb... Same trans w/ close 3rd & 4th gears... Same remote high $$$ oil filter and remote oil cooler...Same valve covers w/ locks...

Of course we don't know if it is the Same engine or not, but his motor was a 1915, Ported & Polished heads, Small Cam, Balanced , built by Race Craft..
If it is, Well let me tell you... It still runs like new and has 50 psi Oil pressure..
Doug was very helpfull and excited to hear about his old buggy, and that its still out there providing a ton of fun and good menories...
Thanks Again Doug For The Info...

The Cow Bug Lives... Cow Patty Racing....
