Jeff'ro GS

Been working on the rebuilding of an original Deserter GS - with many changes along the way.  The goal is to mostly maintain the original "minimalist" nature of the GS, and to create what I would consider the ultimate "100mph Buggy".  The GS mid-engine platform seems ideal for this project, and the looks very unique with the GT body style.

One upgrade is the original Corvair powerplant was shelved in favor of a turbocharged Subaru 2.0L - which will be driving through a Porsche (914) 5-speed transaxle.  Major suspension changes underway too....

Live on the East Coast, Maryland to be specific.

Buggy wil be strictly a road car, with probably a little autocross and maybe some road course running thrown eventually.  Primarily a nice day Sunday driver.

Cheers!
Jeff
