If you took the time to look past the sea of UTVs that were on display at the 2013 Sand Sports Super Show, you probably noticed there were some incredible sand cars at the show. Forget that many of them are beyond your budget, or that you may not be able to afford one this year. The fact remains that sand cars and off-road dual sport vehicles have reached a level of technology that many people never imagined. Sometimes we wonder what things would be like if the economy didn't crash. There would still be more than a hundred buggy manufacturers at the Super Show (like there was in 2007) and the quality of cars would be over the top unbelievable. The leaders in the sand car industry are still exhibiting at the show, and the engine builders are reporting that sales are better than they've been in the last few years. Interested in what they're building and selling? Check out these photos. You'll be blown away!
