Dead Clown Storage: 1957 Volkswagen Meyers Manx Style Kit

I've been leering drunkenly at Myers Manx style dune buggy kits for many years, and someday I'll buy one to tool around and enjoy the "beach" vibe, but I can tell you one thing for certain: My Manx won't have been used to store a creepy assed clown mannequin.  I guess it is never too late for Halloween around some parts of this country.  Find this 1957 Volkswagen Meyers Manx Style Kit here on eBay offered for $4,500 buy-it-now or make-offer.

I don't mind a good "dead clown" gag when placing an advertisement, but the seller's textual description of the car is blank.  Nothing.  No haha, I was only joking about the clown, etc.  Just a blank screen and your imagination as to what it will be like to deal with the seller.  Bring your neighborhood SWAT team to when you buy it.

See a Manx that doesn't have a Michael Myers feel to it?


  1. Reminds me of one of my favorite comic strips, Red Meat.

  2. Actually, the description is not blank, but still is not very useful:

    "1957 VW DUNE BUGGY 50 yrs in storage. runs great. MUCHO BITCH'EN, needs wipers and brakes. 909 206 7089"
