Description

The long awaited updated and revised ‘Bible’ for all buggy enthusiasts, written by the world’s leading expert on dune buggies. Containing an A-Z of the best-known American and British buggy marques, plus stunning photography, production dates, identification tips and a brief history of each model, this is a must-have book for all true buggistas.

Synopsis

The book introduces the reader to the whole cult of the dune buggy, from its earliest beginnings as a crude off-road vehicle in the 1920s, to the explosion of glassfibre-bodied and VW-based fun cars that became the cult transport of teenagers everywhere in the 1960s and 1970s. With histories, production details, dates 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. Using period photographs and archive material, combined with amazing contemporary photography, the book is a visual feast, and also contains sections on buggies and celebrities for those that want to spot pop stars, TV hosts and racing drivers posing with period vehicles.

Models not covered:
There were literally hundreds, if not thousands, of different buggy marques produced during the boom years of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Many were poor copies of other better-known marques, and it is impossible to document them all, especially since there is little – if any – information available on the lesser known marques.
