Beach buggy

From ArticleWorld

The term Beach Buggy has two meanings. After the second World War it was used to describe a vehicle used for ocean surf fishing on the East Coast of America. Nowadays, beach buggies are vehicles that use Volkswagen Beetle chassis and that are re-bodied with an open, fibreglass shell.

The first model ever built was constructed by Bruce Meyers in California, in the early 60's. Nobody expected that the beach buggies would be so popular. They quickly became very common in beach areas and popular in most sunny areas. Also, there are several models today that are available for purchase. Some of them are convertible while others are not. Although the Volkswagen motor is characteristic and classic, we can notice a constant increase in manufacturers interested in the market. This translates in the replacement of the motor with other types. The most popular models at the moment are the battery engine propelled ones.
