Here's another description that uses the term Meyers Manx in some "convenient" ways.

I saw that buggy too! It's nice, but to expensive, and I DONT LIKE THE SCRIPT ON THE BACK THAT SAYS MEYERS MANX!!!!! It's NOT!!!!!!!!! There should be an infringement law on that.

100+hp 1600cc motor....OK I'll bite. You can make that much power out of a 1600 but it's not that streetable

Urethane steering coupler, coil over shocks, no speedo, disorganized wiring, weird throttle set up, and a cheap as cheap can be turn signal set up on a buggy they want $20k+ for.

They say their is a fish for every hook...lets see.

I love playing with people like these. Just shot them this message: Hi there,
Please shoot me a photo of the serial number tag located on the firewall confirming the Manx ID. Without the hood badge bumpout (or indeed, the badge itself) this is just another clone of a Manx and not the real deal.
Thank you.


We'll see if they answer and what the answer is.

I'm with you Rick !
Here's where the guys a bit slimy. What he'll tell you is that it states a few times in the ad that it's a copy.

That's true. It's also true that he throws in the ol red story and "implies" at other times it's a Manx. My problem is that the ad is written to decive and based on that I label the car a counterfeit. just me.

Being a 50's striper, I like the stripe job on the hood,, it's a classic style that was done by a pro. I don't personally like the flame stripes on the side panels, but overall it is a clean looking Buggy, definitely not a MANX and over priced.

I just came back from checking out our flooded roads around here in the "Lil' Bugger" . Worst flooding since 1973...
Most of the roads are clear today finally.
