Aluminium sand: 1972 ATL Explorer II

This gallery contains 3 photos.

Other times we happened to find interesting buggies for sale and, wrongly, we didn’t publish them. It is in fact the “funny car” by definition: it is uncomfortable, it does not protect against the elements, it has the same equipment … Continue reading
