Ok, here it is, the scariest Volvo powered 2 liter Can Am Racer in the world. Also the heaviest and slowest. Also the slowest and heaviest dune buggy in the world, 4 wheeler or 8. Highest bid. Shipped from the exact center of North America. Needs a little work. laugh

Interesting, er. build? And definitely not finished.

It would have been fast enough to kill me in a wreck. It handled great getting pulled down the ditch at 40mph. After someone buys this, the next improved one will be a kit car. laugh This was my 1980 college Structural Engineering 101 and 
Stick Welding 101 class project with the left over stuff from my Super Duper Volvo 1800e project. I always wanted to build a parachute attached to the rear and drop it from a 150' crane just to see what if.

lol, yep, it's what was in the steel scrap pile. (edit: and with E7018 (I think) low hydrogen welding rod, was perfectly capable of doing it's job.)

Nice welds! And I'll bet the frame is berkeleyin' rigid! I'm not sure I've ever seen that much triangulation in a single chassis before! It actually drove and E36 M3?

Sorry, your link was good. It just lead to the rabbit hole it always does and the VW/Bugatti was in that hole.

I have a friend who may be interested. I'll pass this along to him.

The Facebook link seems to be dead. Did it just get snatched up?

No pan, but if I could get that to Alabama, I'd have way cooler plans for that that rear top profile is perfect! devil

The killer of such body shells like the above is finding a windshield. Ad says "have windows" - hopefully that's not just the side ones. Lexan could be used, but scratches easily and isn't legal in many (most... all?) areas.
