These “Volvo Burro” buggies were raced in the 1968 race season and even won a few races. They have been lovingly restored and are incredible pieces of history. I am in contact with the owner and we will be having a full feature on all 3 cars shortly!

Would love to link to your articles when you’ve finished. I used to help with mechanics of that car while working at Volvo Western Distibuting out in Torrance, CA. Bob Sinclair drove quite some distance after ripping off one of the front wheels, drove it across the finish line on three wheels.

Kind regards,

Please contact me about the Volvo Burro. I am the person that bought the remains of the Burro four years ago from Bob and then I restored it and then sold it to Bob three years ago. Do not know if you knew this, but i bought the Burro back from Anne Sinclair a couple months ago.
