Having seen a couple of Buggy / Rail pics recently it started me thinking and going through some old pics.

There is a bit of a story behind this old blue buggy of mine but I'll stick to the main points ( for now anyway)

When I put this one up for sale it was shipped down to Darren Bowden aka "Billybobbuggist" as there was quite a bit of interest
in it from southern quarters and he actually handled the sale.

I never actually met or spoke to the new owner or found out where it went to other than the belief it went further south somewhere.

I just wondered if anyone has seen it in the last few years or knows who actually owns it

this one

First built by (tall) Keith Callder. I got him a white Hurst NASCAR gearknob for it in the US.

Couple of years ago at Bristol volksfest that interior was fitted to another buggy

I did buy it off Keith and we still keep in touch , a really nice guy.
He did a great job building that Buggy and I just modified the interior set up to make it my own.

I should have kept that one  :(

that confirms what I was told that the interior was taken out of it before it was sold , this jigsaw is starting to come together

Taxed and MOT'd til June 2017, so it would appear to be still 'active', for want of a better term.

Ha ha, cheers David! I'm starting from scratch so a new knob would be on the list.

That just sounds wrong....

I think I may have the wind wings of your old girl.
When did you sell it?

Now that is interesting.
Did you by any chance buy them off Darren Bowden as he dealt with the actual sale of my Buggy
I'm not 100% if it was 2006 or 2007 , sorry it's my age  :-[

  Owned by a mate.Taken a few years ago, judging by how low GBH is.......... currently resides in his lock up, only comes out occasionally.
Still has wind wings.... :D

Yes, off the old site and picked them up at Volksworld show.
I was told the new owner didn't like them?
