2. Slang. crazy; insane.
A light four-wheeled conveyance intended for personal transportation. It was an American invention that was designed specifically to provide a fast, soft ride. The soft ride was accomplished by means of a light frame and ellipse-shaped springs mounted between the axles and the frame and oriented parallel with the axles. Buggies were generally pulled by one horse, had only one bench-like seat, and had a waterproof top that was usually made of leather. They were more comfortable for traveling than by horseback and were preferred by ladies, the elderly, and families with small children. Doctors, who often were called out in inclement weather, also favored them. Buggies did, however, have the disadvantage of requiring smoother ground to travel over than that required by a horse and rider.
