Today we thought we would share this 1956 Oval ragtop that came in to have just a bit of engine and electrical work done! This oval was just recently acquired by our good friend @deutsche_classic ! This bug has a complete @limebugvw air ride set up on it to give it the great looking low stance that everyone loves but also the drivability that many take for granted! All of the interior has been covered in a beautiful @sewfine_interiors5280 kit! This bug is powered by a 2336cc Motor with a @cb_performance hideaway Turbo Kit as well as their Fuel injection kit! Of course, there are a few other customs touches such as the Beautiful Aussy Flash Chrome, the Big 17 inch California Cruz Wheels, and of course the beautiful @vintagespeed.taiwan Black Mamba Shifter!
On Saturday we took the buggies out to Selinsgrove Speedway for the Acme Companies-Jack Gunn Memorial Race. we had a great night meeting many people as well as watching the great racing! We were so happy to be able to sponsor this wonderful race and I'm sure will be back to do it all again next year!
Early this morning our dealer Dan from Dan's Custom Upholstery, in Alton, Illinois showed up to pick up his order! As you can see Dan picked up a few show bars and show cages for stock as well as some modified fuel tanks, steering column support kits, and front beams! The biggest thing Dan picked up was the Black Stratosphere Nostalgia body and side pods... If you are looking for any of these parts or any of our other products and you are in the Alton area Dan is the man to get a hold of!
The Acme Companies are pleased to announce our sponsorship of the August
This past weekend there were 2 semi-local shows that we attended first of which was Simple Transport 14 in Hagerstown MD... This show is one of the best air-cooled shows around! There were about 5 Dune buggies as well as many more Aircooled VWs. Then we have The Goodguys 2nd Grundy Collector Car Insurance Great American Nationals which is a 3-day show in York there was a few different VWs that showed up for this show but our two favorites were, of course, the buggies one a Beautiful Orange metal flake Boss Bug, and also the beautiful Deserter GS!
Today for #fiberglassFriday we thought that we would focus on something other than our normal buggy posts. Today we are going to share some projects that some of our customers are working on of the miniature style! about 4 months ago we announced the Baby Bodies were for sale and since then we have sold quite a few in different colors... Here are some of the different things that have been done with them! First, we have AJ's Deep Marine baby buggy which Tyler made into a wagon for shows! This buggy made its debut at the Carlisle show earlier this year, AJ was born into a Buggy family so I'm sure this will not be his last buggy! BTW, AJ and Tyler will be cruising the Boardwalk in Ocean City Maryland this weekend. Next, we have John's granddaughter's first buggy which was made into a baby walker, because as John said "you need to learn to walk before you learn to drive!" When she graduates from the walker John plans to adapt this body to an electric car that he's already torn apart! Then you have Alan of gangplank garages, fire red baby buggy which he won at Manx at the Glen... he started with the plan of a scale model RC car but the last up date that I saw was that he might be trading in detail for raw power... you can follow his build on the Gangplank Garage Facebook page! We know there are more of these Baby bodies out there so let's see them! We currently have 7 bodies in stock in various metalflake colors. You cannot start too early in life to be A buggy person !
