Event: Mid West & East Coast EMPI Imp Buggy get together at Silver Lake.

We are trying to get a good turnout of mainly glass buggies (any sand worthy VW vehicle is more then welcome) to converge on Silver Lake, 8/2/2003 to 8/11/2003. If you can't make it for the week come on by for a couple days.

This is an effort to meet some of the people that you/me correspond with, via the Internet and hopefully we can get enough buggies in a photo to make it worthy of the Manx Club Newsletter.

My thoughts are that everyone does their own thing, but we can try to set aside enough time to get everyone together and have dinner one evening, get some photos, and swap some stories.

Jerry Despaltro, a member of the Manx Club and many of the on-line dune buggy groups, has already put out an invitation to the Manx Club, Dune Buggy Archives and dune-buggy.com.

If you are interested in attending, E-mail me,


This way I can get an idea how many Imps and other vehicles to look for. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. I will have my two Imps there. I expect Don and Scott, who both live nearby, will attend with their Imps. If your not sure you can make it, but would like updates as more people reply, let me know and I will keep you posted.

Here is a link to almost all the motels, campgrounds, and cabins for rent in the Silver Lake area. Make your reservations early!


I spend a lot of time at Silver Lake, so if you have any questions or concerns feel free to E-mail me
