The visit was much to short. Later this week, it will be on its way to another destination.
A prior commitment was made & I have to let it go.
Mark will probably post where it is when it gets there.
Good by little guy.

Here are the photos of Claire's Volkswagen in Manchester, Missouri.

Image

The "Travelling Volkswagen" hanging out and meeting new friends.

Image

Webbie said that Patrick scared Claire's VW, that it climbed on his head.
Image

Webbie took the VW Bug with him to the "Coffee Club"...
Image

...and was a "Special Guest". Webbie told everyone there about the "Travelling Volkswagen" and the story of its stay in Iraq.
Image

It was also taken to the Kiwanis Club in the afternoon. Webbie said it was getting bored and took it back home.
Image

After running around doing some errands, the Bug saw some friends.
Image

Image

Webbie asked the Manager if he would not mind if he took photos of the VWs. He wanted in on the fun. In fact, he helped out with this photo.
Image

I would like to thank Webbie for his wonderful story of the "Adventures of Claire's Travelling Volkswagen".

Stay tuned for its next destination.

I forgot to update, OggieDoggie (the collector in Anaheim, CA) had the VW Bug. However, he requested that he send it out to another collector. He will receive the VW in the future.

The "Travelling Volkswagen" has arrived in Valley, Nebraska.

Charles wrote me a PM and wrote that this was the only picture of the VW Bug he took before his digital camera broke. Also, he sent the "Travelling Volkswagen" to its new destination.

Claire's Volkswagen had an exciting time in North Carolina. Has anyone watched Madhouse on the History Channel? If not, here is a little synopsis of the show. It is a show about drivers at the Modified division at Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. It is one of the roughest and toughest divisions at one of the roughest and toughest NASCAR Whelen All-American Series tracks in the country.

Well, Will (the collector who had the Bug) got to know some of the drivers and he told them about the "Travelling Volkswagen". They said they would try to get Claire's VW on camera for the show, this was the last race of the season. Well, they filmed the VW Bug while he was in the pits getting pictures with other drivers with the VW. The narrator of the show did a little back story of Claire's VW and it's travels. They cannot use her Facebook picture because they did not have consent. They will contact Will if they are going to use it on the show. They really liked the idea that the Bug was sent to North Carolina just for the race. Also, the local media was interested in Claire's Volkswagen, too. But, because of the consent release, he has not seen it on the news.

So, I hope that the VW Bug makes it onto this series. I should be receiving pictures soon. Also, the "Travelling Volkswagen" will be sent out to its next adventure.

Will had the drivers sign Claire's book, too. If Claire's Volkswagen makes it onto Madhouse, I will make an announcement.
