the Dune Buggy Archives

2/10/07 I just bought a dune buggy 2 weeks ago. I believe it is a "Safari Trail" but I am still trying to find out. I found it in somebody's back yard in Copalis Beach Washington. I brought it home to Tacoma Washington. The pan was completely rusted through, the engine full of water, one brake drum frozen, all the tires rotten. Basically the only thing usable was the body. The person that I got it from was getting ready to run over it with his bulldozer then throw it in the scrap pile. I have taken the body off and bought a 1974 bug to use as a pan and rebuildable start.
