I love this........But we call those "woods buggys"

Used for hunting in the Everglades.....Not quite what goes thru the "Sippie" hole...this might trip your trigger though, as these are the V8 monsters that we call swamp buggies...

I used to watch Swamp Buggy Racing on TNN when Diamond P Motorsports covered it ('82-'86 or so?) and I loved it. I think they used to use the tall, narrow tractor tires back then for the rear, but much liek other motorsports, the buggies back then were much closer to homebuilt. I thnk they had a Jeep class, too?
