Actually if I wasn't on the other coast I would consider it. There is a family over by me that has like 5 of them. Even a 70's red flake one. Almost makes me want to forgive disco.


Love it. I want 70s Green flake. :cool:

How does The Isle of Man come into beach buggies? Please explain.

This was my great grandfather's last ship before he retired.. to quietly expire in 1918.

Gotta love wikipedia. Someone's updated this really nicely in the last few years. They always get a few bucks from me when they appeal.
Jimmy Wales is up there with Berners-lee, in my estimation.

This also from Wikipedia:

--- Quote ---The Meyers Manx dune buggy is a small recreationally-oriented automobile, designed initially for desert racing by Californian engineer, artist, boat builder and surfer Bruce F. Meyers. It was produced by his Fountain Valley, California company, B. F. Meyers & Co. from 1964 to 1971, in the form of car kits applied to shortened chassis of Volkswagen Beetles.[1]:120 [2] The car line dominated dune racing in its time, breaking records immediately, and was eventually also released in street-oriented models, until the company's demise due to tax problems after Meyers's departure.[1]:118–123 New vehicles inspired by the original Manx buggy have been produced by Meyers's re-founded operation, Meyers Manx, Inc., since 2000.[2] The name and cat logo of the brand derives from the Manx cat, by virtue of the tailless breed's and the shortened vehicle's truncated "stubbiness".
