Beach Buggies

 

This lovely Beach Buggy will be on Show for the whole of the Festival.

Beautifully built, and finished in a wonderful orange metal flake finish, the paint was mixed and imported from America.

These VW based specials were born

over half a century ago by Bruce Meyers, who, as an engineer, an artist, a boat builder and a surfer from California created these Dune/Beach Buggies.

His creation spawned an entire Beach Buggy culture across the world that lasted for the next two decades.

They were based on the VW Beetle, hence Bug became Buggy.

With an air cooled rear engine, shortened chassis, and a bolt on fibre glass body it proved a great success.

Featured in many films including James Bond, and the Thomas Crown Affair with Steve McQueen.

Although they were never built by VW, the Beach Buggy is synonymous with the brand.

The German firm has released the first images of a new all-electric Buggy designed and built in-house at Wolfsburg which is due to be announced at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
