Anybody seen or driven one these lil' thangs?

Says they're made in New Mexico and claimin' to be street legal with a top speed of 60+ mph. :cool:

Website lists dealers in Paris and Durant.

Stopped & looked at them in Paris, frame/cage/suspension look sketchy at best, drivetrain appears to be outta a GEO or some other micro car, (heavier than most SXS's).........overheard the trooper warnin dad not to be puttin inspection stickers on em, as they are not street legal. Looks like fun to tool around the dirt roads & sandbar for way less $$ than a new Wildcat/RZR/Maverick :beer:

Most interestin' ... maybe I can check 'em out at the end of the month :cool:

Did you sit in the thang? How's the legroom?

They advertise 49-state legal but if'n that ain't the case, reckon I ain't got much use for it. :rolleyes:

Maverick ain't got much suspension so reckon I'm most likely down to either the Wildcat X or the XP1000. No decision needed till next spring tho ... I'm broke now. :meh:

You know is funny looking car....

It's on my list to build a light buggy for my kids...

I something light, street legal and a gas saver.

I pretty much have al the parts for a 1 ton buggy but I saw a nice video of a Samurai, light and small.

Not to mention my boys will not kill themselves in it since the power on them is not as much as the V8s


good luck solving the worlds problem....
