Default New here, building a better yerfdog

Bought this last summer in the parking lot of a gas station down the street. Drove it home, barely. Belt slipping, 55 foot turning radius and no brakes.

Predator engine, some light mods, 4 lug conversion, new suspension, recovered the seat after a chipmunk ate the seat in my barn, 3 point harnesses and my kids going crazy with rustoleum and this is how it sits today. It moves decently, but definitely want a 420 in it.

It looks uglier than before, and has a certain "junkyard" aesthetic.

'Going crazy with Rustoleum'...Is that the look you were going for?
It'll certainly make it less appealing to thieves.

Where do you live that you can drive a buggy home from
where you bought it?

Wonder if swapping for that 420 will make you wish there was a wheelie bar, especially with kids.
