Bad Attitude Buggy Video

The Bad Attitude Buggy project has begun. I have not driven in over five years. To be honest, I am not sure I can with stumps for feet. An off road vehicle is perfect for me to find out. She is not street legal, but neither am I. My license expired years ago. Like me, she has some health issues. But I hope to overcome our short comings and be on the road during the spring of 2022. It has seat belts and a roll cage. What is the worse that could happen?

Bad Attitude Buggy as Purchased.

Her name is the Sexy Viking.  I purchased in October, 2021.  Like me, she is not street legal.  Like me, she needs some fixing up.  The plan is to have her fixed up and street legal by June, 2022.  Hoping use her to travel to additional venues with a light weight trailer.  Keep in mind I have stumps for feet and haven't driven in over five years.  So it will be an uphill battle.

Challenge number 1 - The seats are way to large. My eyes were looking right into the roll cage.

Ripped the oversized seats out. Will put something smaller in during the last steps.

This will be the first part to replace. The slop is not manageable.

I think I am looking at a ball joint front end / beam with thin spindles.

It is a rat. Needs rebuilt. But it was included and gives me something to rebuild while the other engine moces it around.
