Remember the Meyers Manx? If you've been around for a few years, ... well, maybe more than a few, you'll recall the fiberglass body kits that transformed Volkswagen Beetles into open bodied dune buggies. They were extremely popular in the late 1960s and all you needed was a donor VW. The old body was removed, the wheelbase shortened to 80 inches and you installed the new body. Many of the pieces you pulled off to begin with like the seats and such, just went back on after the bodies were exchanged.
The end result was a lighter car that was really quick and fun. Early examples in nice shape are rare and this one is a fully restored beauty. Almost makes you wonder if the time isn't right to do it all over again.
