Just A Car Guy: the Woody Golf Buggy, designed by Lord March (Goodwood), built by Andy Dance, fabricator and frequent collaborator with Goodwood to build carts, wacky racers, and art deco garages



Quote:
In 2007 ... rather than entertain standard ‘plastic’ golf buggies, the Earl of March commissioned buggies based on a vehicle his grandfather had designed and built in the 1930s.

That revolutionary car was called the Brakenvan and it was distinctive for its then-groundbreaking commodious design and ash-wood framed body. Factors like wheel-size were a big aesthetic obstacle, an issue finally overcome by developing ‘aerodyn’ spats to cover them.
