For now…

Next time they get the shai hulud.  In the meantime, it’s off to. . . GG Park?  The golf course?  Where in San Francisco would you need such a vehicle?

    Riding in the back of this is like being JFK in Dallas, without being shot in the head. People wave, smile, and cheer. I felt like a millionaire, if people liked millionaires.

    Also, it smells really bad and is really loud, so everyone sees you and pays attention, without having to yell ‘hey! look at me! I’m in a dune-buggy!’

Automotive experts, correct me if I mis-remember, but… Aren’t these 60s-vintage buggies just VW Beetles with better suspension and fatter tires (plus a groovy fiberglass shell — I remember metal-flake gold being popular)? So why wouldn’t you need one?! I need one, and I don’t even drive anymore.

      You’re correct. Aside from perhaps a slightly upgraded swaybar and rear suspension, all dunebugs are plain old vw pan(sans the metal frame). I believe this includes the original meyers manx models.

      Metallic was the crazy for some reason. When I first found mine, it was a sparkling puke green:
