Iím just an old man with an old beach buggy. Had it 40 years, but I parked it in a lock up in 1992 and forgot about it. Dragged it out last year, bit of a restoration job.   Found this site, discovered the MBC who amazingly meet about 2 miles up the road from me.  The old buggy took its first trip out in 26 years to the Sept MBC.  Buggy life starts anew.

Hi Mark

I don't know if you are aware,  but I believe there is a pic of your Renegade T(YXD 8.) James Hales Dune Buggy Handbook (New Edition)  page 171.
