My new daily ride, street legal buggy.
 
53hp Suzuki engine, 5 speed transmission, AWD, water cooled, goes about 90MPH and the important part, gets right at 60MPG.

Just had to change out the stock off-road tires to some street tires and good to go. I love living in Georgia. :D

Insert stunned envy here.

You would be surprised, they don't cost that much.

Under $8,000 shipped to your door step. 90% assembled.

Half a car note, half a car, better than a motorcycle (IMO), and good gas mileage. :)

Dayum! That's an awesome daily driver. :cool:

That's a beautiful ride... I'm jealous! :-D

Yunus 12-31-2012 03:07 PM

That looks fun as hell!

Good acceleration?

DuraCoater 12-31-2012 03:13 PM

Dunno, hopefully it will be done today. haha

Gone_South 12-31-2012 03:19 PM

That is awesome.

DuraCoater 12-31-2012 03:28 PM

Well good news and bad news.

Its all put together and ready to go. Now it just needs an alignment. Shop is bringing in one of their retired guys to tackle it on Friday morning to make sure its done perfectly.

Hopefully my wife will be able to go by while I'm at work and snap some photos to send to me. :lol:

The anticipation of getting to play with a new toy is always the worst. I just hope they finish it for you on Friday or the weekend will seem to take forever. :)
