Post up some of the best looking buggies.
My favorites are probably the Jimmy's rigs.

The Bota is probably one of the coolest toy based rigs I have seen, and the Canadians (homeboy and Tom) both have real clean rigs as well.

There is something about these single seat rigs I really like too

Here's another real clean rig (not sure who did the chassis)

The original Avalanche Engineering Sniper is still one of the best looking buggies.  Its nearly impossible to find good pictures, its almost like digital cameras were crap in 1999.

The Jimmys buggies do nothing for me.  The lines and proportions are just not right.  The belt line is too high, the rake of the roof is blah, the hoods never fit right and just look like an afterthought.  Headlight stickers suck.  Blech.

Twisted customs on the other hand has had the proportions nailed for a long time.  Everything lines up and looks like it was planned in advance and designed to fit together.

Jesse Haines is another guy that builds good looking buggies that work well.  Sick.

He needs a lightbar up top this big round ones aren't right. I guess part or the reason I like em is after seeing them in person their work is top notch! All their welds are perfect and the rig worked well.

Speaking strictly on looks, I think the reason people love the Jimmy's chassis' is because they were the first to popularize the Chevy Truck and Escalade front fiberglass clips. Those look pretty sick and seem people always just associate them with Jimmy's.

If they would make them fit it would help a lot.  The huge gaps and no flow from the hood to the rest of the car makes them look stupid.

I agree (although not near to the extent that you do) but think where most people see them....in magazine adds. The pics are always closeup, taken from the front highlighting the front clips.

I don't know if it was a one-off or a production chassis but I like Casey Curries 2012 KOH buggy.

I like grama single seater the 6 shoota as well

I love looking at full tube buggies but I really don't see the advantage having one for the type of wheelin I do. A tubed out computer chair now that fits my style! :thumbsup:

I am partial to the V8 buggies. However, even though is it obviously highly functional, I have never liked Shawn Campbell's buggy (from a styling point of view).
