Default Baffled about this buggy...

Hey guys, well needless to say, my friend was gonna toss this buggy, so I took it off his hands for only 5 bucks. Can anyone let me know what it is or is close to being? I'm sorry the pics are vague. I don't even have the company name, but i'd really like to get it runnign over the summer, it'll be my project.

right. sorry forgot to mention it was a 1/10. anyway after a couple hours of work, i was able to replace the broken left shock rod. I also swapped out all of the aluminum/plastic shock caps and put on pure aluminum caps. I had an old wing off some old buggy, so i just drilled new holes, slapped on an ofna sticker and I have a temporary wing...but its red. lol

I know this thread is dead. But what did you end up doing with that condor. Did you build it, if so what other brands are compatible with it.
