The dream..... A fuel injected turbo/supercharged Meyers Manx dune buggy which will turn heads, attract chicks and haul arse. Something that will blast down the beach with it's front wheels two feet in the air and spitting out two big roostertails of sand from the rear wheels like an open-class ocean powerboat on dry land.
The reality..... A rusty, badly weather beaten "thing" with a naturally aspirated 1200cc VW engine that looks something vaguely like a Manx if you squint really badly and strain your imagination.
We have a long way to go, but at least it's a starting point.
What the hell is a Manx, anyway?
The history of off-road VWs, especially Bruce Meyers' brilliant creation.
A story of alcohol, adrenaline, horsepower, more alcohol and stupidity.
(Floor) Panning for gold
popping, farting and making black smoke. (The Manx, that is. Not us.)
