Low res images, font not embedded, would not buy.  ;)


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.


Almost.

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.

Yeah... love beach buggies.   8)

The Meyers Manx dune buggy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dune_buggy) is a small recreationally-oriented automobile (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automobile), designed initially for desert racing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desert_racing) by Californian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California) engineer, artist, boat builder and surfer Bruce F. Meyers. It was produced by his Fountain Valley, California (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fountain_Valley,_California) company, B. F. Meyers & Co. from 1964 to 1971, in the form of car kits (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kit_car) applied to shortened chassis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chassis) of Volkswagen Beetles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkswagen_Beetle).[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meyers_Manx#cite_note-DBH-1):120 [2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meyers_Manx#cite_note-MMH-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] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meyers_Manx#cite_note-DBH-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] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meyers_Manx#cite_note-MMH-2) The name and cat logo of the brand derives from the Manx cat (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manx_(cat)), by virtue of the tailless breed's and the shortened vehicle's truncated "stubbiness".

Not sure if it is just me or what but I can't see any of that previous post. I thought of trying to edit it but it is a real mess. Maybe trying posting it again.
