i found this car on CL. I called the guy and he emailed me some cool info on the car. It is missing the motor tranny shocks powersteering but the power rack is still there. It has 5x5 arms 10" wider front end 4.5 arms up front. It has a way cool roll cage and a ton of fab work that would cost tons of $$$'s. If i had 3200 buck i would buy it today. My wife seems to think that a fence in the back yard and shelves in the garage are more important. So she said no. It is a heck of a car. I will still cost a bit to finnish but for the money it is a heck of a start. Just call the guy and he will email the info or let me know and i will email the word document to you that he sent me.

Try copying and pasting the URL out of the address box- that's the link you're looking for. That sale@blah blah blah is just the email link for contacting the seller.

We built that car here at Bugzyla Fab. I dont know why he is selling it, but we put over 10K into that car, so its a real steal at the price.

he told me he he did it as a mock up and is now going to do it again. It didn't make much since to me. From the pictures he sent me it is worth a bunch more than he is asking. the tube work it self would cost more than that to have someone build. It is almost overkill.

Is that really possible "overkill"

I will tell you why I think he is selling it. He had us do the car out of 1 1/2 .120 wall mild steel with the intention of grandfathering the car in for tha baja 1K, the new score rules say you have to use DOM tubing or chromoly tubing, I will bet that he couldnt get it grandfathered in after all of that. If I had the money I would buy it because I know what was put into that car.

If that was the reason for the sale, I would THINK that he'd part it out instead, and re-use most all of it. If the cage was the issue, he could re-use almost the ENTIRE car on a new one.

Oh well- it's a HELL of a deal for someone.

Yes, thats the car we redid a few times because he couldnt make up his mind.

I agree with tony, it would be better to pull all of the parts off and put them on another car/chassis.

If you do buy the car, you can still race it in Whiplash sportsman classes. It is a shame the guy didn't plan properly. But it will make a great play car!

It isn't as it is pictured at this point. He did take off a lot of stuff. but what is left is still worth much more than he is asking.

I am getting my wife closer into letting me buy it. I think it is still a long shot though.

Why do i need a back yard fence anyway.
