Bob Yahn's awesome Meyers Manx Street Buggy.

Bob is the original owner/builder of this Buggy.   It is an original BF Meyers Manx.  Bob built this car in the late 60's and has owned it ever since.  It still has the original Emerald Green Gelcoat that has a mirror like shine.  The Buggy is powered by a chromed up Corvair engine.  The windshield and roll bar were lowered when Bob built the car about 30 years ago.  In fact nothing has been changed on the car since it was built, even the flowered pattern seats and full top are the original!  If you like this car, you can let Bob know by email .....  Robertyahn@cox.net

In the late 60's and early 70's the fiberglass buggy craze was at its strong point.  While Bruce Meyers started it all with his "Manx" buggy, there were many other buggy manufactures that followed Bruce.  Some came up with their own style of the buggy, while others made a copy by creating a mold from a Manx body.  People sometimes refer to these as a "Manx Type" buggy.

Here are more Buggy pictures, send me yours I will try to include it here.
