David writes :My wife, Rose, and I started a search for a dune buggy in May of '99, after seeing a sharp dune buggy at a beach side grocery store. Also being constructed out of fiberglass, it would hold up to the salt conditions in Daytona Beach. We already had a Jeep deteriorate from the harsh conditions. With luck there was one in the paper by mid June. It was a 1970 Meyers Manx II. It was green with a mural of sea life and creatures and had extra chrome on the motor, which Rose liked. Now it was my turn to put it mechanically back in shape.

This winter I am planning to install new wiring harness, guages, and epoxy coat the interior pans. I have been receiving just as much fun working on it, as driving it. I am keeping my eye out for the next project i.e. another Manx or Allison (Allison dune buggies were manufactured in Port Orange, Florida in the early 70's).
I enjoy your informative site.
