Work in progress

My bug left home some months ago.  The body is bare metal (only the front apron is still painted, but the body need a new one). Chris ( Vintage Autohaus - www.vintageautohaus.com ) will do the body work, the pan and paint. Judging by Chris' incredible work, the car will be perfect.

Tfabs, Salem and I, we rebuild this original Manx drag buggy from the 80's. It made 10.79 at the 1/4miles in the 80's. Very fast and light. 2276cc engine, 51 IDA, lots of Autocraft parts.

This drag buggy is for sale, don't hesitate to ask.
