Looking to pick up a buggy but would like to know what kind it is. Also how hard is it to insure it ? There are no papers with it..where would the vin numbers be?

Looks like mine. A Boomer Buggy. Check out the build forum under Johno's build. Sorry I don't have a pic of the hood but its the same.

Re: registration

You may be better off if you don't find a vin.

I bought my bug as a pile of towable parts in Vancouver, I wanted insurance to tow it home so I went to ICBC with the vin. I was told I could not register it because "I was not the owner". Apparently ICBC still had an owner on record from way back when who we could not trace...and of course ICBC would not give tell us who it was. I had a receipt of purchase but the guy I bought it from also bought it as parts.

....so we went to the next ICBC office down the street with "I've got this home made trailer....."

I had no problems with registration here in Sask. It is registered as an antique vehicle but I also have "stated value" insurance on it. You may qualify for collector plates...ask other BC buggy owners what they do.

See this for vehicles with no vin:http://www.bclaws.ca/EPLibraries/bclaws_new/document/LOC/freeside/--%20M%20--/Motor%20Vehicle%20Act%20RSBC%201996%20c.%20318/00_Act/96318_01.xml#section16

Also, plow your way through this bit of legaleze for what you must have for equipment on the bug:http://www.bclaws.ca/EPLibraries/bclaws_new/document/ID/freeside/26_58_00
