Description

Prepare for a whole cult of the dune buggy! Get to know buggies from their earliest beginnings as crude off-road vehicles in the 1920s, to the explosion of fiberglass body and VW-based fun cars that became the cult transport of teenagers everywhere in the 1960s and 1970s.

With histories, production details, and identification tips for over 70 US and UK buggies, the book will help identify the many marques that have been produced over the years. Filled with period photographs, archive material, and amazing contemporary photography, the book is a visual feast from a bygone era.

The author

James Hale is the world's leading authority on dune buggies, and has written five books covering the buggy scene worldwide. His first book was the Dune Buggy Handbook, published by Veloce, and remains the definitive guide to these unorthodox fun cars. He has also regularly produced freelance features for motoring magazines, and has written technical books on modifying the VW Beetle and VW Bus suspension, brakes and chassis for high performance. How to Modify Volkswagen Bus Suspension, Brakes & Chassis for High Performance, first published in 2003, was completely revised and updated and published in a new edition in 2011, and re-released in 2018.
