Yellow Buggy

Postby Smiley » Mon Jun 06, 2011 9:13 pm

Saw a Yellow buggy (not sure on type, definitely SWB) being A-frame towed North along Gladstone Rd in Rockhampton this afternoon. Around 3:35 on my way how from work. I just got a glimpse as it went by. Was yellow looked like it had personalised plates and was being towed by a white, trayback Landcruiser with a canopy. Sorry no pictures. Was this anyone from off here??

It's possible that this is the one I sold to a guy from Rockhampton in 2010. My late husband I built it from the ground up, we had it painted a really bright yellow with black carpets and red details. Last I heard the guy was real close to getting it registered, it only needed a mod to the roll bars. We had installed double roll bars like a sportscar but apparently Qld rego only wanted original single roll bar.
I thought he would have had it on the road by now, maybe it was being trailered for some extra work. :roll:

Nice buggy, very tidy. Cool turbo set up. Do they come in a bolt on kit or did you make it up yourself.

HI Josh,
we dealt with a Turbo specialist from near Brisbane, "Turbos 2000". He had the setup and we installed as per his instructions. I vaguely remember it being originally a Daihatsu Charade turbo or similar size. Maybe a Fiat? something out of the ordinary, I know.

hey josh, you can buy a turbo kit very similar to the one pictured from cb performance in the states. they also sell all the bits (manifolds, flanges, bov's ect.) separate if you wanted a more diy path.
