Meyers Manx

A wild spirit through the deserts of America!

Meyers Manx
Name: Meyers Manx
Debut Series: 2003 Editions
Produced Year: 2003
Designer: Bruce Meyers & Phil Riehlman






The story behind:
The Meyers Manx dune buggy is a small recreationally-oriented automobile, designed initially for desert racing by Californianengineer, artist, boat builder and surfer Bruce F. Meyers. It was produced by his Fountain Valley, California company, B. F. Meyers & Co. from 1964 to 1971, in the form of car kits applied to shortened chassis of Volkswagen BeetlesThe name and cat logo of the brand derives from the Manx cat, by virtue of the tailless breed's and the shortened vehicle's truncated "stubbiness".

The looks:
When I first saw it it was pretty much a weird little buggy-like car, albeit the small featured design of the car I would say it is a very fun one, the whole chassis and body is die-cast <only the seats/windshield coming as plastic> which screams quality! The innovation and enthusiasm the car captures the sentiment of the 60s, a wild spirit through the deserts of America!

Rating: ***/2

You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
