Gosh!! I love this picture!! I still had a full head of dark hair - - Even my mustache was still dark!!
Anyway, the moral of this pic to reaffirm the frame of mind to try not to overlook anything! This buggy had quick bolt on fenders for the back tires, quicky bolt on street mufflers and off road straight pipes, quick bolt on window shield make of polycarbonate, horn, turn signals and a windshield wiper. It was still registered as a 1966 Olds Toronado, up to date registered plates
and I used to drive it to work on occasion. This could never have been done if I hadn't planned for the idea during it's build. Incidentally, those aluminum fuel tanks on each side of the motor held 7 gallons each and were valved.. In the desert, I ran without care anywhere until a tank went dry - Then I knew I always had enough fuel to get me back to camp. Believe me, you don't want to run out of fuel in the middle of a desert.
