Been on here many years but never posted. As Mel Hubbard nicknamed the car Lego, I'm afraid it is no more... bleugh

Can you guess what it is yet?  :)

a single seat buggy so guess it may have had square graphics on the side you have polished off.

I was never fully happy with the Invader, with having the Corvair turbo engine it was only right to order a Bounty Hunter from Rob Kilham which I really like and pays homage to Mel Keys original design.

The buggy isn't finished yet and will be a three seater as my 2 daughters have grown up (the third seat being sunken near the oil cooler).

That looks good. Any more pics of the engine and interior?
I'm in my buggy,
It's raining,
I really don't care.

Back on the road after 4 years.

Really enjoying the sunshine!

Will upload more pictures soon, just finishing the homemade roof ready for the rain!

David as a life style influencer before the internet type came about it is good to see I made an impression on somebody to lower their standard and worry less about it. ;D ;D ;D ;D that looks ready for an IBW trip in 2021 ;)
