Hey Everyone,

I just joined the Manx Club a month ago and I hope to see a bunch of you at the July Big Bear run.

That said...here are my before and after pics.

How I found it in a field in January of 2001.

Image

I spent 3 years gathering parts and building it.
I put in on the road in September of 2004 and then started adding things to it every winter or when money came along.
Here is after I got the PRP seats in it and the rear seat made....probably around 2006-1007.

Image

Got bit by the turbo bug in 2007 when I started gathering parts and finally built a turbo setup for it in 2011. After many changes I am now Fuel injected, Water injected and boosted to 22 lbs with a 1679cc engine. It has been reliable every summer at 3500-4000 miles a year.
I still upgrade things every winter and can't seem to leave it alone.

Sitting at the beach on a warm night watching the sunset this past summer.

Image

The wait is not very long..... :shock: 8) :wink:

Bought in '79. It was running, single port 1500. Fixed some wiring nightmares but drove it for years. About '84 one of my roommates was working at a chrome plating place, so I took the body off, painted it red and plated everything metal on the car I could get to. Still the stock 1500. Had the full cage put in around '88 or so. Best thing I ever did. Absolutely night and day difference in drive-ability, handling, tracking, etc. DO IT. I guess around '97 I had 2275 motor built. The original 1500 was still putting along just fine though. I pulled it and sold it to my neighbor who bought a buggy without a motor. This buggy has never left me stranded even once, although I did run out of gas once. Pic's with girl is how I bought the buggy.
