Well, now Im a Grand Father, it funny how Bob The Builder, Winney the Pooh, and last but not least The Wiggles play a big part in my life again. So when Dave Newell called in to show me the new paint job on the Little Black Buggie, the first thing that popped into my head was The Big Red Car from the Wiggles.
I've known Wiggle Dave for years now and Projects at Daves place are as on going as running water, one Project has finished before the next has been well planned out and has gone beyond the drawing board. Making this project one of probably 5 going on at Daves place.
Though many projects are underway, attention to detail is something that is never over looked. This Buggies was built to go with the 40 foot Denning coach Dave is turning into a mobile home.
Dave expects to park at a prime location and have the Buggies to Kruiz round in to enjoy the loacl sites, while the 40 foot Mobile Home is parked else where. The Big Red Pump is used to blow the tyres back up when the buggie has been onto the sand hills enjoying itself.
This little Buddie started out looking nothing like this, to date, Dave has, raised the Body Shell, relocated the head lights, fitted a rear seat area, manufactor a boot area, change the windscreen, fitted wipers, strengthened the body extensively, just to mention only a few things. Its been good to watch Dave build this Buggie and sharing in the enjoyment of watching it come together.
When it came to the motor, dave considered Stan Pobjoy would know what he's doing, so dave bought a trun key 1916 from Stanley, just to make sure those Commodores dont get passed him on the Northern Road.
