Boon Duggy
1960 4 Seater
1500cc Dune Buggy

Well, I have always wanted a dune buggy to go with my sand rail. It has been a great past time to keep me busy during the winter months when things kinda lock down because of the weather. So, I rent a shop with a good friend and we build a good fire and 2 years later, there it is. Great fun. After finishing it for our vacation, I can't get my wife out of it. Her and the grandkids, when they visit, love driving all over the place, hence the name that our grandkids call it, Boon Duggy.

On Oct. 1998, I purchansed this 1960 Buggy, which I found out was an uncommon 4 seater (standard VW pan) for $100, what a deal.

It had a 1500cc motor (strong) which is the only thing I kept, except for the sterring wheel.

I totally stripped it down and started at ground zero. I still have some things I am going to do but it was driveable so off we went. I finished it for our vacation in Sept. 1999
