I have been thinking about a buggy for a while now. A guy I know has dozen or so various buggy bodies including a Manx and SR-1. I might pick one up to do after the '67 is done. Use the 1500 single port from my '67 as the basis. Soup it up with a cam, 88s or 90.5s, the kads, etc. Basically a STF motor and stock trans. Put some Cragar SS rims or widened stock rims on it. Maybe paint it metal flake orange or blue. Be a fun little project and I can use some of the stuff I have stripped off the '67 to complete it.

There used to be a really nice Cal Look (I guess that's what it's called) Myers Manx buggy that cruised around Orange County in So Cal, back in the early '80s. It was light blue, had a big 48IDA engine, and BRM wheels. Fast and good lookin'. Wish that I had pictures of it. I'll have to go into my old photos and look. Forgot the guy's name that owned/drove it... but it was everywhere and at many of the VW events. Tastefully done, too... had H4 headlights and Lucas turn signals up front.

Currently, there's a recently built bright green one in my neighborhood. He's got a smaller engine in it w/dual small carbs and he drives it almost every day. I've always wanted to build one, but no chrome anywhere on it with BRMs. I think it would be fun to drive.


One from down undah.


Another one. I'd paint the headlight buckets the same color as the car. Like Savanna Beige.

That thing is radical!

Im jonesin' for a first gen Meyers Manx... metal flake orange, white top, white cannons, white widened steel wheels with early VW caps and Mickey Thompsons, stock white vinyl seats with orange flake welting and cut down frames....  Tongue

A British Buggy - the Doon. Designed and made only a few miles from my house - I had a sneak preview of the buck before it was complete enough for the bodies to be made around 10 years ago. Very clever design - the two guys basically looked at the problems with all the other buggies on the market and fixed them, (opening front bonnet, proper dash, all sorts of clever stuff) and came up with a new design that wasn't different for the hell of it and actually looked right! Cheesy

But my favourite buggy is Monkiboy's - it's just right! Grin

Greg Booras drove "Hot Tub" back in the eighties, big motor, blue body, Huh? wheels, I think Greg was in DVB.

Heres a shot of my NOS Meyers Manx that I sold before I got married. I really didn`t want to let this one go but sometimes life gets in your way. Thats my little girl in it. Must have been at least 6 years ago. I never got it going. I did get it into a roller so I could sell it though.

Man, I dig cal-look buggies. Grin  Ever since I took a ride in Ken Reese's buggy years ago I was hooked.  I seriously thought about getting one before I bought my Ghia, but decided with the inclement weather we have around here it might be best to have a car with an enclosed cabin.  Cool

Here's a few shots of Ken's bitchin Manx taken at Bakerfield in 1985.  It ran a 2180cc and easily ran in the 11's.  The car was well done throughout.  From the cage, to the original early Type 2 glass tailights, to the front weight bar, this buggy was awesome!
