So, I was doing my usual daily peruse of CL and found an ad for a (not a true Manx) dune buggy project. One of the photos had some interesting background. I've also included the link in case you're looking for a (not a true Manx) dune buggy project.

No way, that's the famous Hawaiian "red dirt", they needed to keep that on the wheels for branding reasons.

I love my Olukai flip flops!
