I've been bad again

Post by CalAltaDubber » Tue Oct 25, 2016 10:29 pm

Well things have been crazy up here in the GWN.

I had both bunnies out and played around a bit with them..

One cool thing that happened was my company hired a consultant to work with us in the quality area. He got really excited when he saw a picture of Posh Bunny on my computer. Turns out he owns a cabby too.

In the meantime I decided that I didn't have enough cars around. Soooooo I bought a new toy.

Sure I probably paid too much, but you only live once.

Or heat in the winter.... On a side note, the town that I used to live in many a decade ago, used dune buggys to deliver pizza in the town, during the winter they put up tops and side curtains, and had a 12V oven in them to keep the pies warm. The Logo painted on the back was Putt Putt another Pie from Pizza Hut.

Have good memories of them.

It's like driving a snowmobile down the street at -40. What's not to like? :D

Actually, like the bunnies, it will reside in the garage until spring.

LOVE IT'!! My dad had a similar blue one back in the early 70's when I was a kid kept telling me if he didn't sell it it could be mine to drive when I turned 16 unfortunately he did sell it but then they bought the 72 Beetle that I got to drive and thus starting the addiction

I've always wanted one, ever since I built a model of a Myers Manx when I was a kid.

When ever I've come across one, it seems like a magnet dragging me to check it out.

Earlier this year, I learned that Bruce Myers was back in business and had a new model on the market (Manx Kickout).

I was actually planning to acquire a bug and build one (when the Canadian Dollar gets back to a reasonable amount).

Then I came across this one.

Plan is to drive it next summer and repaint it next year.

It is a hoot to drive!
