We recieve tons of emails with questions of all sorts. We will attempt
to answer some of the more common here.
is the Manx Dune Buggy Club?
The Manx Club is given to outdoor gatherings for tire kicking
and telling small lies, comparing cars and getting to know each
other. We organize a few events a year for our club members, produce
a newsletter, and maintain a website.
Do I need to own a genuine Meyers Manx to join the club?
No. Any make or model of dune dune buggy is accepted as long
as it is street–legal.
What kinds of activities do club members participate in?
We mainly participate in our organized events which include fun
runs and "Show & Shine" competition. Most of the time
it is a combination of pavement and dirt. We typically have three
courses. Pavement for the street show cars that don't want to get
dirty, moderate difficulty, and most difficult.
How much is a membership?
The club membership is $30 annually.
What do I get with my membership?
The membership entitles you to attend Club Events, a Club membership
card, the "Manx Mania" - our 12-16 page, quarterly newsletter and
access to our "members only" forum where one might find answers
to technical questions. The newsletter provides answers to personal
questions, a technical column, and a column from Bruce Meyers regaling
the past. It also includes a report of past events, recent trips,
classified ads, and a calendar of upcoming events. You also recieve
access to the private member's area of our website.
Where can I buy a real Meyers Manx?
Genuine Meyers Manxes from 30 years ago are difficult to come by.
People typically find them for sale on ebay or in the Auto Trader
magazines. You can also check our classifieds section of the website.
Otherwise, Meyers Manx is currently in production with the new Manxter.
These are readily available.
