Devil Boy Hot Rod: 1970 Volkswagen Dune Buggy

There are times when a ride in a home built rat rod doesn’t make sense — let’s say you are trying to impress the parents of your new girlfriend.  And there are times when a rat rod does make sense — when you are trying to terrify your daughter’s new potential boyfriend.  However, in either one of those cases the most important rule to remember is that you shouldn’t spend a bunch of your money on the hulk, but you could let the previous owner spend his time and money building it for you.  Find this 1970 Volkswagen Dune Buggy offered for $8575 in Farmington Hills, MI via craigslist.  Tip from Rock On!
