Bruce Meyers grew up in Southern California during the early days of surfing, drag racing, and hanging out at the beach. It was at Pismo Beach that Bruce first became acquainted with “dune buggies”. These “water pumpers” were crude and heavy, so Bruce took it upon himself to design a lightweight version that would be fun on the beach or in the wilderness of Baja. After modifying a VW Kombi bus with wide rims, called “Little Red Riding Bus”, Bruce used his expertise in boat building to design the first fiberglass-bodied dune buggy, the Meyers Manx.
The performance of the Meyers Manx was amazing, especially off-road! It handled better than any other off-road vehicle ever had, and was so fun to drive due to its supple suspension and light weight. A pair of Meyers Manx’s won 39 out of 41 Slalom races and won its class in the Pike’s Peak Hill Climb beating Corvettes, Cobras, and most open wheel sprint cars! The very first Meyers Manx, “Old Red”, driven by Bruce and Ted Mangels, and beat the standing Tijuana to La Paz motorcyce record by over five hours, culminating in the first Baja off-road races. Meyers Manxes came in first overall and second in their class in the first official race, the Mexican 1000 in 1967. This started the off-road revolution and eventually Score’s Baja 1000 off-road race.
