Many years ago I was at Glamis and saw what had to be one of the smallest sand cars using a VW engine and trans I had ever seen. And for reasons unknown I did not get pics of it!
This car sort of resembled the first Mongooses, It was blue when I saw and the guy had built it for his girlfriend so as to have her in a cage. This was truly a mini and the engine if I recall right was mid engine and it was a tiny one seater.
The front suspension was NOT VW but again similar to the Mongoose. The engine (Vw air cooled) actually stuck out the sides of the frame behind the drivers butt. It was extremely well done.
Does anyone know of this car? Thanks Bill
