A video I made when I first got the car together and on the street:

A video I made last year:

Not a show car but a car that shows real well and a blast to drive
Car is good to go…does have a pull to the right under hard, emergency braking – might just need a brake adjuster twist

NOTE: This is a very cramped interior. at 5’6″ I just fit

    This car is this car http://fiberclassics.org/2008/10/03/shalako-heads-to-a-new-home/
    I know the owner and the car – it’s a great piece of history and as good as described. Steve put a bunch of time and money into it to get it where it is today – someone is going to get a great deal!

    Guess we should have put the link, huh: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1970-Shalako-Street-Dune-Buggy-/261199519228?_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMESELX%3AIT&forcev4exp=true

    It’s ended now, at a low price of $3K which is an insult. The asking price is well worth the cost of admission with this rare a toy, and it’s road-ready – a huge plus. For the truly interested, contact the owner through Bay or even email or PM me here and I’ll pass on his information.

    Car was just re-listed on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1970-Shalako-Street-Dune-Buggy-/261204726026?_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&forcev4exp=true

    Buy it now has been lowered. If it does not sell I may just be taking it on another road trip from Long Island to the Carlisle Kit Car Nationals in May…so, as you can see…she’s a runner and reliable for a road trip or just weekend cruising
