Thought I would take my dune buggy to the street drags at SpeedWorld in Surprise AZ. At this event I had a 3.2L Yamaha V-6 out of a Ford Taurus SHO in her with a M-90 Eaton Roots style blower bolted to the side of the block, and pushing 8 psi. I don't have street tires for her so I ran with my BF Goodrich Mud Terrains. Didn't have a bottle warmer for the 30 shot of Nitrous so I left it off. Fastest time of the night was a 12.49 @ 110mph
Turbo'd 90 SHO vs turbo'd SHO powered buggy
Friendly drag race at Speed World on 10-18-08, between a recently turbocharged 1990 SHO and me in my dune buggy. I
call the buggy "The Other Woman" and you might have seen my YouTube videos
of her with the Eaton blower on her at the sand drags at Gordon's Well in
At this race, the 90 kept up with me the entire way which is very
surprising when you consider that he's carrying at least a 1000 pounds more
than the buggy.

SHO powered buggy dusting an LS-1 buggy the wrong way!
When I dropped the hammer, the front end came up and I got a little out of
sorts. I tried to find him after the race to apologize but he scooted.
My buggy has a 3.2 liter SHO motor from an automatic transmission SHO, with
a Roots style Eaton blower from an 89 Ford Thunderbird SuperCoupe. It's
puts 278 hp to the ground and has 300 pound*feet of torque from about 1200
rpms up to 6000 where the blower runs out of steam. Really should have
gone with an M-112. Now she's turbo'd
and too scary for this old man. Looking to sell her to someone with bigger
cajones. Craigslist Phoenix. $ 34,900.00
I took it to the asphalt drags also and did a 12.48 at 110 mph on knobbie
tires. What a hoot.

TC pretty much shocked everybody when he built his buggy called SHOWTIME.
It's Jimmy Smith Motorsports Chassis and TC built the rest at his shop.
There isn't many hills he didn't hit in this buggy in the last few months.
He started breaking the 300m RCV shafts so he decided to build some new 14
Bolt axles with Ouverson Shafts and Rockwell Outers. So I can't wait to
see how he treats in next.

How To Build A Dune Buggy From Scratch - 001 - Cutting Pipe & Tack Welding
Add your own music! The first day of work on the custom off-road dune
buggy was all about cutting six 21-foot pieces of pipe into 40+ small
pieces of varying length. I started with a jigsaw, gave up after breaking
7 blades, and then managed to find a miter saw and specialty blade for 1/2
the price of a chopsaw. I also used my FCAW (Flux Core Arc Welding) for
the first time, and tacked up the top planar section of the frame.

Fiesta ST Agent 67 in $220,000 Dune Buggy at Glamis!
On pavement the Fiesta ST is hard to beat for fun factor, but in the
sand... this dune buggy might be just the trick. Sporting Fox Shocks all
around, a hand-made all-aluminum body and a 650 horsepower
naturally-aspirated LS7, this sand car provided for one heck of a good
time! Of course, a $25,000 Fiesta ST isn't on-par with a $200,000+
sandrail, but they still share several strands of car guy DNA!
Ford invited me to be an Agent for the #FiestaMovement. They've provided me
with a 2014 Ford Fiesta for 8 months, and they're covering gas, insurance
and admin costs. http://cmp.ly/6/qQMeV9

Ford Dune Buggy, Flathead Inline 6
A home built dune buggy. 3 speed tranny. Made between 1949 and 1951. Could
have been a truck or coupe to begin with, but the frame was shortened so
there really isnt any way to tell right now. I will have to see if I can
match the numbers to any specific vehicle so I know what it was to begin
with. Sat in that same spot for over 30 years. When I first looked at it, I
assumed it was an automatic tranny because there were only two pedals and
the shifter was on the column. But upon further inspection, the gas pedal
was broken off and it is a three on the tree.
