Lithia Springs Dune Buggy

buggy buggy buggy
Body This bidy is a close match to the Lido Design but, the nose is pointed. For years were called it a pointed nosed Lido because we didn't know what it was. We now have documentation from GA that this body was known as a Lithia Springs buggy because Litha Fiberglass in Lithia Springs GA built the pointed nosed Lido.
