It all begin 3 years ago when someone offered me a engine and chassy from a vw bug for 600$, so I jumped at it and after bringing home 2 Full pickup truck loads of parts its was mine!!. My mom just about flipped out when she saw what I spend all my money on...ha

It just sat there in the back of the bus for 2 years and then we finally decided to start building it.

Here is my dad welding in the floor after we cut 21 inches and made it shorter, and Below is the chunk we cut out.



In this pic you can see tha back half built...its made from a chevy truck role bar layed on its back


In these next three pics you can see the back and a little of the front witch is also made from a chevy truck role bar




The all mightey 1600 dual port engine


Just a pic of the hole thing with front


This is the mufflers I payed 25$ for we got to still extend the tips and straighten out the other one


Hear are the reduction boxes when we bought them they were all ready converted to lay down


Flat ain't she


Here is My dad taking it for the first ride...he wouldn't let me take it first!!


NEW pics!


Just a side view almost done

Shocked My first thoughts were,,,, WTF! Shocked
That is truly a unique ride you've got there.
Although I saw a very similar set up in a truck version at the Bug-Out in Manassas Va. last September.
Just be mindfull of rollovers traveling through the woods with that short wheel base. Wink

I know this is old now but here is a update, never worked on it in a year now, snowmobile season again, so this week I decided to get at it and try to finish it up. here are some pics I took today, got the gas tank in, wiring all done, seats mounted, paint almost done, roof and inside needs to be done, and all the little things are staring to get buttoned up. I know some of you thought What the hell did he do? and I know never looked too good from the previous pics but ya should see it now big change! so here's the pics:
