Definitely the best "Old Schoolers" had a mid-engine with independent front and rear suspension. FiberTech Engineering 1030-Dune Glider was the first back in 1979, and it is where a fabricator named Mike Mazzone would begin designing and building some leading edge sand cars. This was before he branched out to build his own sand cars in the early Y2K. Both "Mazzone" and "Dune Glider" designs are almost identical in every respect.
