Part of Veloce Publishing's Those Were The Days' series, The Dune Buggy Phenomenon: Book 2 is a cracking little hardback title that offers 96 pages and plenty of fantastic photographs and illustrations for its cover price. And it manages to get across the fun, frivolous and exciting side of the dune buggy concept just perfectly. --Review by Paul Guinness for Classic Car Mart, May 2006
The second installment of the Dune Buggy's evolution and heyday, recorded in photographs and words, and featuring: Never-before-published period Buggy data and rare archive material; New photographs showing Buggies, performance parts, and accessories; A permanent record of Buggy development for builders and restorers; Buggies in the USA, the UK, Europe, and Australia; Historical information from Buggy designers; Amazing promotional material and buggy ephemera. Dune, or 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 Employing exhaustive knowledge, previously unpublished photographs, and rare archive material, this is a fantastic addition to the collection of dune buggy literature. Latest title in the sporting nostalgia series "Those Were The Days...". Author is the resident Buggy expert for Volksworld magazine.See all Product description

Book 2 carries on from where book 1 left off. It has some nice photos not seen in the first book and some really great period adverts showing buggies.
The previous book is a much better book, but that is to be expected as it covers the heyday of buggies and encapsulates the excitement and innovation of the time. This book covers what happened once the excitement had died down, and brings us nearly up to date. It is a pleasing book to own, and is something you would want to have if you already own book 1, but it doesn't really strand up on its own. It feels like an appendix to the first book, if you accept it as that then it's fine. Its a well printed, nicely laid out, hardback book, written by the acknowledged expert on the scene for the price of about 3 VW magazines.
