Meyers Manx! World's First Fiberglass Dune Buggy - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 23
On this episode of Hot Rod Unlimited, Elana Scherr speaks with Bruce
Meyers, the creator of the Meyers Manx dune buggy. Bruce visits the HOT ROD
Studio with some restored and original Manx buggies for a photo shoot
and explains the inspiration behind the development of the Manx in 1964
and its subsequent racing and cultural legacy. Then we head to the Meyers
Manx headquarters, ride in an original Meyers Manx with the Manx club and
take a new Dual-Sport manx on the autocross.
HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the new Motor Trend

Featured in the July 2010 issue of eurotuner magazine, this air-cooled VW
Buggy is the personal project of Derek Jenkins. He was formerly the Chief
US Designer for VW but has since moved to Mazda. His buggy is an awesome
mix of traditional air-cooled style with modern materials and aesthetics.
This is possibly the best buggy we've ever seen, so don't miss the full
feature in eurotuner magazine (on sale 15 June 2010) and at eurotuner.com
