Dune (beach) Buggies are still immensely popular today due to their fun factor, stylish appearance, and lifestyle associations. This 2nd volume of the Dune Buggy Phenomenon explores the lesser known Buggy brands from around the world. Employing exhaustive knowledge, previously unpublished photographs, and rare archive material, this is a fantastic addition to the existing collection of dune buggy literature.


Not only has James Hale designed and produced buggies for a leading manufacturer, he’s also the resident buggy expert for Volksworld magazine; his own car is a faithful reproduction of Steve McQueen’s Thomas Crown Affair Corvair-engined Buggy. He is a member of The Society of Automotive Historians, and an associate of the Guild of Motoring Writers. This is his seventh book for Veloce Publishing.


Hardback. 96 pages. 190mm tall x 205mm. 100 pictures, mostly colour.
