Meyers Manx Kick Out SS.
wkarnes
Bruce Meyers and friends in driveway, fall 2010. I did not trust myself to rebuild the Dyno Soar 2332 cc engine. Blue, Mike M and, Dave Williams at Peninsula Automotive in Campbell, Ca, rebuilt the engine. My friend, Mike Moreci rebuilt and set the carbs. Other than the engine and shortening the pan, SS was put together in my garage and on the driveway. It took a while as I test fit, adjust, modify things. If it probably won't fit, I try to find a way. Once things are together, i find a better way and take things apart again. Bruce and Winnie came by to check my progress and visit for a while. I was showing Bruce what I had finished and what I was going to take apart and redo. He tells me," Looks fine to me. Wayne, you are never going to finish this if you keep taking it apart." This is the 1st Meyers Manx Kick Out SS ( proto type is with Denmat ). Took it to Bruce's Birthday Bash. Drove it to Kelley Park. I am getting ready to take it apart again, want to make some changes and improvements, move something a quarter of an inch, replace that with this. Better parts, better ideas, better ways to do it. Some day, might finish it. Have to tell you, the bank and credit card company love me.

Brunch with Bruce at Half Moon Bay
wkarnes
Winnie and Bruce in Old Red on way to brunch. Sandy behind the wheel of his restored green Manx. Me riding shot gun. Photo By Maurice Liang, taken from rear of his Manxter. He was strapped in, we are doing around 60 mph here. Old Red, With Bruce behind the wheel, back in 1967, is the 1st fiber glass buggy to win what would later be known as The Baja 1000. It is well maintained but, has never been restored. What you see here, is basically as it was ( minus spare gas tanks ) when Bruce drove it in 1967. When Old Red is not in a museum (on loan ) or at an event, Bruce drives it on a regular basis. He says, he never intended for any of the Meyers Manx dune buggies he built or sold to set in a heated garage. They should be enjoyed and driven.
