was driving my Manx in Orange county CA and a guy pulled behind me and asked if i wanted to buy a little manx.  He had it in his pickup truck bed.  It was a fiberglass body on a small frame with a 5 hp briggs and straten?  engine.  Was is not so great shape, told the guy I would post it on here if anybody is interested.  Was shaped like a glass buggy, orange or copper flake in poor condition and he said he wanted $900.  He was supposed to be moving and needed the space.  I think a couple of hundred would take it if anybody is interested, will try an post a few photos here and His name is Alex, his number is 714-633-0898 or 714-532-2630.  Says he lives in the Santa Ana area.  Glenn.

so you guys think that is a allison body?  I didn't know, but like the pics you added...cute little i said, it is not mine, but just a guy who caught up with me driving my meyers manx around santa ana.  His numbers are listed and if someone is interested give him a call.  Like i said, it is pretty rough and he was tossing out $900 figures but was moving and I am more than sure he would negotiate a much lower price.  If someone on here buys and restores it I would love to see the photos.....Glenn

Sorry Gleen didnt mean to hyjack your site, NO I dont think it is a Allison body , Im sure lots of people made different go cart bodys, It would be neat fixed up but I am on the other side of the world ( SOUTH CAROLINA ) LOL. Sure was nice of you to put it out there, I hope it gets a good home, In my area there is a guy that has a vw bug cart that matches his full size buy he calls them , its called something PICKLE and they are custom painted identical to each other , If I can find a picture I will post one .              Ken.......................

Well Gleen I couldnt find a picture of the guys go cart and drag car side by side but here is the sour pickle go cart.  Ken.............

Is it the "Super Pickle" drag car, if so, it's a well known one from the 80's and 90's. There was also a chopped type 3 wagon that raced under that name.

May be but this one is Jerry Knights Sour pickle unless there is a TYPE O he runs in the SEVWA SERIES HERE IS A LINK AND A DRAWING OF HIS CAR I GUESS IT IS A WAGON AND NOT A BUG LIKE THE GO CART
