Bruce Meyers, the legend behind the Dune Buggy, is no longer…..

Sad news reached us today that Bruce Meyers, the inventor of the Beach Buggy, left us yesterday at age of 94.

Bruce passed away yesterday, Friday, at his home in Valley Center, California USA om a blood disease called myelodysplasia.



Several nice articles been published about Bruce, where Autoweek gave a real nice time line about our heroes history. You can read the full article HERE

On several occasions we met Bruce and his wife Winnie and everytime he impressed us so much being a real and humble man.
One occassion was really remarkable as we met Bruce together with Friend of Da Houze Jacky Morel.

Jacky was the guy who we can be put easily responsible for bringing Bruce back into the VW world a mere 20 years ago.

Bruce is on the right of the picture….his wife Winie in the middle.


Bruce and Winnie recently sold their company so the future of the Manx is garanteed. Bruce was very happy about that, so we hope he left is peace.



Gracefull we will remember part of Bruce everytime we see a Beach buggy.

Thanks Bruce, you really brought us hours of VW Fun!

  1. I was lucky enough to meet Bruce and Winnie twice, he was so full of energy, I can only wish to have so much drive when I grow older.
    Thank you for everything Bruce, you will be missed by the whole VW family worldwide.
