Well, Claire's Volkswagen is "On The Road Again".
I met up with Nathaniel Long (from South Bend, IN) at the Convention and let him know that he was going to get the Travelling Volkswagen.
He was surprised and and excited about the news. I told him that my family was here and Claire, too.
He was looking forward to meeting Claire.
He had fun telling his friends in his room about Claire's Volkswagen.
In his room was one of the members of the Indy Hot Wheels Club and she was curious about the history of the Bug.
It turns out that she wanted to do a story about Claire's Bug and release it in her club's newsletter.

I have received a PM from Nathan.
He and Megan (his girlfriend) have been taking the Bug to a lot of events, including the Indy Children's Museum.
He sent me some "cropped" teaser photos of the Hot Wheels exhibit.
One looks like he has Larry Woods signing Claire's notebook!!! Totally outrageous!!!!! :shock: :D

Once he has sent me the photos, I will be uploading all pics.

I have received a total of 4 CD-ROMs worth of pics of Claire's Volkswagen (3 from Indiana and 1 from Hawaii).
There are over 600 pictures to go over, so it will take a few days to pick out the ones to post.
Also, the "Travelling Volkswagen" is on to its next destination.

I have not done a good job at updating this post.

Since its time in South Bend, IN it has been to Kihei, HI, Camano Island, WA, Cypress, TX, and now it has arrived in Huntsville, AL.

I am still having issues with uploading pics onto Photobucket with my internet. I will be uploading photos shortly.
