Story I was attending an estate auction to buy a Berry Mini T. After being outbid I was approched by a guy that asked me I was still interested in buying a dune buggy? I asked him what he had, he told me he ahd a dunebuggy body that he wanted to sell for $150 bucks and he liveis on the next street over from the auction. We walked to his house only to find the body with the hardtop and misc. pieces sitting in the alley, next to the trash cans. He bought the buggy in Morris, Illinois and drove it home (45 miles) disassembled it, cut out the torsion housing and removed the pieces needed to build a sandrail. I paid him $125 for the body and assorted pieces and hauled it home.

Story Built this Manx, either no. 4 or 7 off Bruce Meyers mold in 1964 as a street, slalom car. We slalomed successfully throughout the 60s and 70s and then some more in the 90s. Class M winner, sometimes a top time of day car (when Don Wilcox wasn't running the event in the Corvair powered Manx). For slaloms we took off the windshield, put on a 6 inch plexi shield, added a "real" rollbar (SCCA) and put 13 inch Hoosiers on the ground. We trailered it to events. In 2008 my three sons and I rewired the car, changed it to 12 Volt, put the windshield back on, added back seat and belts, made it street legal again and registered it in CT. State Farm is my insurer.
Clubs We belonged to the Saddleback Sports Car Club in S. Calif. in the 60s/70s. SSCC broke away from the Orange County Sports Car club back then so they could concentrate on slaloms. We were the club that put on a couple of 2 day events at Carlsbad Dragway, using the entire 1/4 mile straightaway with a left turn at the end as part of our slalom. Over 200 Corvettes showed and over 300 entries attended. The final runs were three laps, not some 45 second slalom. It was FUN!!! In the mid 60s there we attended two and sometimes three different slaloms each Sunday during the race season. In the 90s we competed in the SCCA Pro Solo Tacate autocrosses at Lion Country Safari's parking lot.
Previous Owner There is no previous owner to this MANX. It has been in our family since my father Willie and I built it in 1964, 45 years ago. I built this car with my father and my three sons have rebuilt it with me and hopefully their sons will work on it with them. The car is rust free, been stored inside always.
