He's pretty old now and may just not have the energy to keep up with it. Sad day really, hope the new owners respect the brand he created, nurture it for what it is and don't just run it down.Bruce Meyers has sold his company to a Venture Capital firm, Trousle Ventures. The price was not revealed. There are many knock off, but the Original was always on my Want List.
Good for him and Whinny (sp?). Cool dude. A buddy purchased a body from him a few years ago. Great quality.Bruce Meyers has sold his company to a Venture Capital firm, Trousle Ventures. The price was not revealed. There are many knock off, but the Original was always on my Want List.
I honestly don’t know why I’m going to get into this maybe just something to do I have my Can am I haven’t drove in 4 months
AwesomeA really good video:

I had the opportunity to not only meet the guy at a club meeting at a little diner in Valley Center, he invited me back to the house after. He showed me the whole operation, saw and touched Old Red, and I’ll tell you what. You’ve not lived until you’re strapped into a fiberglass car with the power to weight ratio of a Dodge Viper, and the 80+ year old guy who designed it takes you for a rip around town

Hot Rod Magazine did a write up of the guy featured in the April 07 issue.
That silver 2+2 car is the one I rode in. Subaru 2.5 deal stock tune 250hp package.
As we were driving I asked if it would wheelie. He said if he thought the vw trans would take it he’d try, but didn’t think it would View attachment 942935 View attachment 942936 View attachment 942937 View attachment 942939
