being from Dayton you should try and find that band of about 10 or so buggies out there
I Have tried to get them to come around with no luck but they are out there.
Ive seen and met them

I've got a lot more pics of my buggy that I would love to show yall but photobucket will not let me log on. :( Even went to their trouble shooting page and followed their directions.Still nothing :x
So I'll just tell you about it.

Lowered the front, installed bumpers front and rear, and new seats from a late model Freightliner. Sure wished I could share my pics with yall. Oh well, maybe later when figure out what I'm doing wrong. :?

Hey Don, still got them and there free to a good home! :D As long as I dont drive too far. I work at the Valero plant @ 610 and Manchester.
The sizes are 14 x 7 and 14 x 8 with the chevy five lug 5 on 4-3/4.

I went with 16" rims for better tire selection
