How much did it cost to make this?
Since this thread was over 3 years old I'll give it a shot in the dark. If I were to take a guess,that buggy would cost between $10K and $15K in parts and materials. Many run more. A lot depends on driveline and shocks chosen.

He sold the car, maybe a yr or so ago.  Most likely for less than he had in it.

Nope, he's building a RickS designed AR51, along with a ProtoDie kid's buggy.

WOW, I have not been here in a long time.  I tore the car down, powder-coated everything, drove it for a summer and sold it...for a profit.  I sold it for 14,000, and had 10 into it.  I water jetted all my own plate-work, machined all my own parts at work.  By doing that myself, I saved a lot of cash.  I am in fact building another car, an AR-51, and a Proto-die kids car for the little ones.  I should start a build thread here...
