Meyers Manx creator Bruce Meyers has died at the age of 94. Meyers created the Meyers-Manx dune buggy which became highly popular in the 1960’s. It was known as a California beach icon and was highly celebrated in pop culture.
Meyers originally created the iconic body in his Newport Beach garage. It was a fiberglass body designed to fit on an old Volkswagen. The Manx raced in the very first NORRA Mexican 1000 in 1969. The Meyers-Manx was also used in several Hollywood productions.
Bruce Meyers was inducted into the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame in 1978. Meyers sold his company last year to Troutsdale Ventures, which plans to carry on Meyers Manx legacy of fun, freedom and expression that Bruce and Winnie originally created.
