Nothing special about the car. Just a run of the mill long travel buggy with a bug skin on it.

Look around on the various sites like race-dezert,racing junk,glamis dunes,craigs list or just get out your check book $$$$$$ and wait a couple years for a new one to be custom built. I think the one you posted sold for something like 80K. BTW,there are a lot nicer caars out there,ya just have to look.

Yeah I think that was his last stunt before the sale.  Nice car w/ 1/3 hp can be had for 1/3 price or less.  Seems like car left country, prob just in time before impound.

There is quite a bit of info on that car on a group called The Samba. He got 49 days in jail, 3 years probation, and a helluva fine. He sold the car to a man in Qatar. Dont remember what he sold it for. He has since built another one. He built the grey bug frm scratch. Just what i know from doing research on it.
