Gert, I met Bruce and Winnie once back in August 2006 at their Sunday morning "Manx Club Breakfast". It was so great to be able to meet and talk with him finally. I did not have the Manx with me, but I brought an album of our Manx pictures and he really seem to enjoy looking at them especially the o...

John and Gert.. sounds a lot like the future here in California. We still have quite a few off road driving areas left. But everyday it seems you read of another area being closed to off road. Sometimes enviromentaly justified sometimes just enviromentalist politics. Someday here you may have to go ...

Next questions:
What are some of your off-road buggy activities today in Holland and back in the 70's and 80's if different from today?

Also what are some of your favorite buggy on-road trips over there?

The Ruska family were very good marketeers. From early seventies till mid eighties there were written several articles in Dutch car magazines. Tell anyone you have a buggy and they ask: "Is it a Ruska?" The Ruska family must have been "very good marketeers" to have lasted that long. It looks like t...
