My brother and I built this Manx in 1968 , from a 65' beetle
,I was 16 at the time. We have kept it in shape all these
years , with a recent update in May of 2003 , but it still
pretty much the same as when we first built it. It was my
first car and I guess it will always be in my family. I drove
it in high school and it was in every parade ( homecoming,
football parades, etc.) It has been to Florida and back ,
several times , Myrtle Beach , too many times to count, .
It carried me though my two years in the Army from Ft.Gordon,
Ga. to Washington , DC. - 71' - 73' (MP) . It was my transportation
in college. It is still driven weekly , and still gets a lot
of attention by people on the roads.
