    I'm working on some buggy models for a video game and wondering if anyone can tell me who makes the buggy in the attached picture.

    Thanks

    Could be an older Jimco, or maybe a mexican copy of a Jimco.

    It's looks like an old Jimco.They had the rear body with tail lights on the bumper and the front skid plate looks like one too. My vote is JIMCO.

    Yep I would say older Jimco. The rear bumper is the Jimco style and the aluminum work looks like Jacks Aluminum with the wrap around and tail lights.

    Jimco!

    I'm split myself.....Looks like a Raceco front and with the JIMCO aluminum wrap around in the rear. It's a "JACECO" :D

    I think its John Markings Old Jimco he sold to a guy in La Paz. I belive the same guy who wrecked the class 1 car in Ojos by the Ostrige farm in D2G.
