A bargain. Many spares at the wreckers


The resonator has split from the main pipe coming from the engine, I'm planning on removing the resonator, and just dumping straight into the muffler.

General Comments:

I'm planning to remove the body and put the running gear into a specially designed space frame.

Plans from www.rhinobuggies.com.au

For its age, the car handles like a dream in grass in the paddock, where it spend most of its time, because it isn't registered.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
