So I decided when I was 14 to ruin my life forever, I decided I wanted to build a buggy, nothing big, originally it had a vw 1600 motor, and my dad agreed to my plan. Well it spiraled out of control with people who saw the project around our shop, someon offered me a corvair engine, someone offered me their sandblasting facilities for when the chassis was ready for paint, and finally someon offered me a supercharged 3.8l v6 out of a pontiac. Well I have finally got the motor out of the pontiac and am in the process of figuring out what i have to do to make the truggy work, mostly finalize transmission options, scrounge and see if i can come up with something better mostly. But i am advancing slowly where i can, designing components and what not, but it is slow, with having to work a full time job during the summer and school the rest of the year. I will update as much as possible, but its going to (probably) be slow, maybe i can convince my dad to let me work on the buggy all day on saturdays : )

Here are some chassis and engine pictures as the project stands right now, parts of the chassis need to be changed drastically, mostly the rear end to accept the live axle design i switched to.
