That's right, dune buggies run them all the time. So do some bicyclists, and for the same reason - to tip somene off to the presence of the vehicle, even when they can't see the vehicle itself because something blocks the view.
Thanks for your respective answers, FMGreen and The_Lizard. I've seen the same flags used for visibility on bycicles, especially recumbents, but hadn't made the logical connection. I guess that's because I've never been lucky enough to see a dune that was large enough for a car to hide behind it.
I'll have to Google for places where I could buy such a flag.
try CB Performance, big VW/buggy parts mfgr and seller and pretty much the state of the art for air cooled VWs. i think i've seen those in their catalog. good outfit, i've dealt with them repeatedly. just don't let em know it's headed for something other than air cooled VW thing, tho....
I love your pics! I have taken mine in the sand too with the family. I wasn't able to take pics.......I loved the look of all the 4x4's & suv owners watching me tackle the deep soft sand like it was nothing! I think they were stunned.......!
Lowered with LGT struts, Eibach LGT springs, and stock LGT front upper spring seats. Only a day old. No real issues yet. Did it because the lifted springs were a little rough for a 1.5 hour commute each way.
