Dangerusdug's Rides

Doug has a few rides, a fan of the VW

Saturday morning - August 2nd, 2008 on my way to East Troy, WI to meet up with 78squirewagon I met up with Dangerusdug for breakfast in Tomah, WI. First leg of the trip done, I slept in the van at the truck stop. I was ready for food and Pinto's.. or in this case I should say Bobcat's!

Owner: Doug Gourley La Crosse, WI and a Member of Godís Country Racing Association.

The Cat!

The Bobcat has been in my family since new and I have owned it since 1983.

Lot's of customizing here

The Bobcat has a 2.3 liter Rebuilt and Bored .40 over with a Crane Cam
