Dune Buggy – California’s Gold (3002)
Back in a Southern California garage in 1963 something amazing was happening. A 37 year old Bruce Meyers was building a car that would that would become an icon, the Meyers Manx… better know as the Dune Buggy. This simple car really spring-boarded “off-road” racing into the huge sport it is today, cutting more than 5 hours of the previous Baja 1000 record in its 1st try. This in turn caught the eye of Hollywood: Elvis, Lucy & Desi, Scooby-Doo all had to have one.
To quote Road and track from 1976, “The Manx has to rank as one of the most significant and influential cars of all time. It started more fads, attracted more imitators… and was recognized as a genuine sculpture, a piece of art.” Join Huell as he gets many smiles per mile with Bruce Meyers, and a bunch of Meyers Manx owners as they trek through the So.
