The "Lobster" dune buggy, with brother Dale (L) and Dad, Elmer (R),
circa mid-1960's. This buggy was made from a fully intact 1952 Studebaker Commander that my Dad and I chopped down, removed the cab, and made desert-ready. With a big V-8 water pumper, hay-bailer tires in the rear, Armstrong Tru-tracs up front, and a T-18 tranny, this baby covered a lot of ground in a very short period of time!
