I decide to go to our local Agrotrend which is a showpeice for the local farmers to see new ideas and buy agg equipment amongst other things.
Well the Agrotrend has turned into a great place to buy stuff and not everything has to do with the farm side of things.
They had on display a little off road buggy designed by an ex SAS officer out of the Isreali Army/navy/whatever.
What a great looking little buggy.

www.tomcar.com.au/

They are trying to start them now in Australia. Built like the proverbial outhouse and the are running only a 750cc fuel injected 4 stroke motor with a difflock for the back wheels. they are only 2 wheel drive. the motor only weighs 47 kilos dry?. The whole buggy weighs about 650 kilos approx.
I so want one!

They are only displaying it at the moment but they are setting up a test track in Brisbane for those who want to try it out.

G'day Pete,

Does look like a great piece of kit. What size tyres do they run and where can I go see one down here in Brissy.
I love the 4 door model, but it looks a little low to the ground. Do you know if they are registerable?

Regards Trevor.

PS did you see the gathering on the 20/21st May at Imbil, it's a little closer to you this time.

From what they told me it is currently in the process of getting GOVERMENT approval which could mean anything. I have been told they shouold have it all sorted around september some time so I am hoping to know more then.

I did see the QLD gettogether notice but I thought it was this weekend. I'll have another look and if it is good I'll be there :-0

Thanks Andy,

I must have missed it on the website. That size doesn't allow for much variety though does it.

Trevor.

Saw the 'Peace keeping' options but it seemed a misnomer coming from that part of the world doesn't it?
Cheers,
