Eevryone raves about the Tar Babe chop, but I think the Buzzin Bee has better proportions and more continuity in the side windows

I think the roofline on the Tar Babe looks better than on the buzzin Bee (check the funny angel on the rear window) The side windows on the Inch Pincher look better than they do on the Tar... atleast the rear.

Remember to stick a Gasser pic with the comments guys!

Hey,

what a really great looking here!
I really like it!
Hey Fab, did you have other pics?

Here's my contribution to the tread; this gasser is waiting for better time somewhere in the US.
The pics were put on the blog http://70s-power.skynetblogs.be/ (http://70s-power.skynetblogs.be/) a while ago.

A lot of the racers back in the Day used this style front end it allowed you to Deep Stage and leave a little early without red lighting because as the weight transfered to the rear and the front end lifted the front wheels actually moved back a few inches which in turn would not trip the tree and give you a red light  look at the picture of the race shop ghia in the air the wheels are moved back but when it on the ground the wheels are centered  it was an old trick used back in the day with  VW racers

The Buzzin Bee looks like it has small window doors on a big window body! And that rear window is much too short... Tar Babe is a good looking chop with great lines and a proper rear window, but Ive always thought that the quarter windows looked too pinched  ::)

Here's one of my favorites from the early 80's.  The car was known as "Gray Matter".  It ran a vintage 74x88 combo with Empi slipper skirt pistons/cylinders.  The car ran high 11's.

This picture is cool because, as you know, Russell now owns the ex-Keith Goss/Seume chop-top. The Porsche in the background is painted Sahara Beige – the same colour used by Leonard Becker on the chop-top. KG's idea was to build a VW that looked like it was built by Porsche. Looking at that 911, you can see how he succeeded.

Here is "Der Rennlaufer" when found in a northern Florida VW shop a few years ago. A 1966 Bug built to race in 68, parked in 73 when the aluminium flywheel broke loose when racing a Barracuda on the streets of Gainsville ... while tuning up for an "east vs west" VW-shootout at the Gainsville dragstrip. Very very light, no front brakes and the best time slip says high 12s. 1680 ccm with dual Rochester carbs on 2 feet tall homemade intakes. DDS shifter, wild EMPI cam etc etc and the original M&H slicks on the back. Freshly rebuilt, very strong running original engine. An authentic true, untouched racecar built in the "us east coast guys will beat the shit out of the Inch Pincher"-spirit. For sale at the right price to the right owner.

(Sorry if it has been posted before...I am getting old)

Dick Roy....The green car picture I took at either a Bug-In or Drag Day around '79. He had two shops in the later 80's. One on Central, in Chino, and the other off Central on Foothill, I think it must have been Montclair. When I moved to Chino (in '85), that was the only shop in the area that I would go to.

Dear friends, I personally have been to this warehouse, well it's Akira's place and he takes good care of his old callook cars believe me
he's also the guy helping out super vw to put together the bug in dvd
respect for this guy, and it's true in Japan they don't come out often but he has a warm home for them genuine gassers and early racers

I think that some of the cars in the collection have Japanese links going back to the day too, as well as Fumio there were a few other guys from Japan working out of So-Cal on VW stuff. There's some good historical knowledge over there.

That car was originally built By a Mr. Schulz in Akron, Ohio.
It had a  Porsche 6 cylinder 911 motor !
I bought some parts from Mr. Schulz shortly before his death and he showed me that car, it came with a ton of oval parts as he thought it would be more valuable returned to 100 percent stock !
After Mr. Schulz died, it was sold by his son.
Eventually it ended up in Canada and advertised for sale on "The Samba".

just had a book in my hands with a picture in it of sumfun and a red car in front of it at the staging line. it seemed a nice car as well. but of course my brain can't retain info longer as 7 seconds so i forgot which one it was. i know it looked good...

it was a hardback book with some vw history in it and in the last section a couple of bugs from the states (80's stuff) there was that narrowed red beetle in it as well. (sure i remember that one  ::) )

That must be the old black car. That thing looks bad!!! 8)

I think you should paint some 70s type door grapics. What did you have in mind?

Yep, that is last years flat black car. I have some green metalflake paint left over from another car that I think would look good here and there on the car, just have to come up with a pattern.

not sure ,,,i had someone say it is (was)the RSG,,,pics looks from the 80's (by looking at the cars in background),,look at  the lights,hood pins,,glass,how the Tach sits,rear fenders,chop,,etc...IAM NOT SAYING IT IS (don't get mad at me, please ;D)..me personally  i thought the RSG had the orginal paint still, applied by "MacPeak"from the 70's.?..maybe someone can clear the air on this...if it's not THE  RACE SHOP GHIA it's   damn close......was it  repainted,?i do not know the history on the painting  of this historic  race car..

I am almost positive it is not the race shop ghia, but just thought I would ask. I do not want to seem like a know it all ;D I took a pic of the race shop ghia at bug in 32 and it was still wearing its original racing paint scheme. Mr. Russell Ritchie now owns the car if im correct.

What I especially like about these old pictures are the cars and people in the background. In the second picture of Lightning Bug you can see a wing, wheel and door of the Andersons car to the right. And in the background in the right upper corner you can spot a baywindow that seems to be a car of OCIR...

In this picture you can see even more of the Andersons bug:

If there's a handbrake in it then no front brakes is no problem! Rules just ask for 2 forms of braking! If there's no cage at all I'd take the opportunity to get a fully legal 6 or 8 point one put in - you're not chopping out a historical cage then, and with the shoulder bar and a built in head rest the bucket seat should be fine too! ;)

Hi Dean,

I asked my friend (who actually is a bit older – older then Sarge  ;) ) what year he attended the Bug-Ins and he couldn't remember. Luckily his wife knew it. She said they have been there in october '70 and '71. That must be Bug-In #7 and #5, correct? And of course he forgot which picture has been taken at what year. Can you tell which year this picture is?

When I was talking to him he asked me if he gave me the color pictures, too. I told him that he gave me just color pictures. He replied that he did b/w pictures as well and that he has a film also.  :o A super 8, it must be somewhere. I told him that I will help him finding it. Puhh, can't believe it. He never said anything about a film before. For him it's not important, it's just something he experienced over 30 years ago...
Cheers,

Georg

Post by: deano on September 17, 2007, 15:26:40 pm
I would say that photo was taken at the October 1972 Bug-In, whichever that one was (#?). If I look closely at this photo, it would appear that at this stage in Tar Babe's life, it still had raw aluminum interior panels, before they were red-on-black marble-anodized by George Industries. I can't recall that this moment what month Tar Babe was featued in Hot VWs.... That would jog my memory, as when it this photo was taken, because the panels were no anodized yet when Jere shot it. Help?

If I look closely at this photo, it would appear that at this stage in Tar Babe's life, it still had raw aluminum interior panels, before they were red-on-black marble-anodized by George Industries. I can't recall that this moment what month Tar Babe was featued in Hot VWs.... That would jog my memory, as when it this photo was taken, because the panels were no anodized yet when Jere shot it. Help?
that was in the may/jun 73 issue , and here picture  from another  magazine

A couple of points that you can look at to tell the age of Tar Babe. One, does it have wheelie bars? Does it have ALL the four red BRM caps? Does it say "Auto Haus" on the side of the hood or Race Shop? M&H tires were first, then Firestones.... Of course, DDS spindle-mount front wheels or BRMs? Fleming & Hunsaker on the door window edge. Quick-shift stock shifter w/t-handle or DDS? DDS linkage or Empi cross-bar? Red interior panels....

Can anyone tell me, where Fremont is, if the Dragstrip is still there and why you never hear from this strip if it comes to Volkswagen?
I know that Underdog was raced there in '71 and it looked like a very simple facility.

What a great post!  It brought back so many memories of watching (most) of these cars run in the 70's.  I have a bunch of pics I took from the 70's and I'll get them scanned and load em' up.  There are some doozies of old classics.  Also, can't believe Shubie is still around.  Yeah, yeah, I disappeared for 25 years and you did'nt.  I remember when you collected all those original BRM's and just gloated.  Rick meredith.... wazzup?  Dyno Don, 'member me?  The "Worm" is back!  Building a 66 right now for my 16 yr old son.  I have been bitten by the.... ah you know.
Peace, I'll post em up later.  OR..... is there a site I can put them on as I must have 100 or so pics?
DKK Member from 1977-to not sure its kinda blurry.  Mr. Bug In runner up Bug in 27 (still have the stupid plaque)
Whatever......... hope to see some old faces soon.

No that Hans Huber car is a California car. I think it ran last time in 04(?) at the Reunion(?) race in Bakersfield, CA.

As far as I know this car was on the East Coast of the USA and belonged to Kosnoski, then James Varn of Autobahn Imports (A/D HotVWs 1/8 Record Holder), then an unknown guy out of Charleston, SC. Now it belongs hole shot photos. This is how the car looked before being taken apart. Yes it is the same car, someone round cut the rear quarter panels.

I find this aspect of the car more fascinating than anything else and that's not to say the car isn't awesome in its own right either, it is. It's got such a fantastic history and I just found myself stood there looking at it over and over thinking about all those visits to the track.

russell who said that the 1st mouse trap was blue obession after ??? first owner was howard muse and the car was an 54 and blue obession is an 55 and owned by jack blanckenship.
 mouse trap(top chop) with dean lowry behind the wheels ran at bug in 11 and jack blanckenship too (maybe in blue obsession???)

it was jack who said that is was the original mouse trap but is it truth  ??? who know ???
here's 2 pictures of both car
found the difference  ;) the dash several gauges inside  and blue obsessionhad a normal dash
blue obsession had chrome trim , mouse trap no , vent wings(deflector doors) on blue obsession  , mouse trap no , I also know that these parts there could be changed since time

Nice photo Fabs,
Doug Church was the owner of "Modern Specialist" independent Volkswagen / Porsche repair in Long Beach, CA... My first employers (as a VW mechanic) and VW mentors were Herb Roberts and Hugh Tietsworth of H&H Motors, again in Long Beach...  Herb and Hugh worked with Doug at Modern Specialties back in the late 60's along with some young guy named Jim Dutcher... H&H used to talk about the old dragster often.

I believe that was the same car hanging in the rafters of another VW shop in Long Beach named TNT Automotive... I met the owner, Tom Wright as his Snap-on Tools dealer in the early 80's. I'd ask him every week, "you ready to sell it?" He'd always say "not this week"

We ended up buying it from Tom Wright in the mid 90's   It was lengthened 12" & had no motor, but it was the real deal. I remember reading about it in a old Hot Rod magazine annual that I had since I was a kid. Jim McNear had found it & a few of us went in on it & bought it  and then restored it. It was quite a thrash to get it ready for Classic 98'. I found some photos of us with Dean Lowry  & some of the owners at the time , Jim McNear, Ron Wood, Myself & Mark Herbert. It was a day to remember.  Bill

Don't be too sure about the weight of those lead plates. Often, racers write on them what they want "others" to think they are using. While in reality, they could be a LOT more. Same thing applies today with RPM chips. Open cars with exposed MDS boxes are often looked at very closely by other racers. So, the labels are often changed to throw them off track.... "Hmm, a 2500 rpm launch chip..." Just FYI.

First white van belonged to Audley Campbell and his Stuttgart High Performance shop in Culver City,CA. His car, the famous Stutt Bee was there at Carlsbad, and I will post that photo later on. Schley told me that VoA told Audley, he could not call his car "Stutt Bug" so he changed the name to Stutt Bee. Can you believe that!

no one have more info about this car ???

It's a East Coast car.  There is a picture of it in a chop-top version in Ultra VW acticle about gasser race trailers.  Dont rememder now if its this month or last.
thx for the info , don't have seen the name on the quater panel  :o
those aren't the same car , watch the  rear window the 1st one is a 67 and top chop is an oval 's car
second is very strange she 've big mount , but no oval door handle and the rear decklid is an 67 or late model ???

(http://cal-look.no/lounge/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=1112.0;attach=37176;image)
 

Didnt pay enough attention to the fact it was a totally different car.  You are absolutely right.  Either way that is a car I have never seen or heard about till that picture in Ultra VW.

Looks like a Ron and a Greg – but who's the other guy to the left in the striped top??? Darrell?

Oh, and Elvis is sat in the blue Bug at the top left of the photo.

From left to right; Mike Mahafey, Greg Aronson and Dave Patrick.
You win! :D :D :D

The "Quake" car may have been a bracket racer with a quickie lettering job, along the lines of the "High Plains Shifter"  ;D  Which may have been
driven by one of the "baby Berg's"  ;D ;D ;D

Of course I have been know to be wrong on occasion.

So here's some more Aussie gassers from the early years... You have some pics of Yoyo, Houndog and PK's car.... But here is a few more...

An early version of Pete Keegan's car....

And the engine from it....

A latter version with the first gen choptop....

Just received this color pic of Pink Panther from my buddy Fabien! Muchas gracias muchacho! ;)

The picture has been taken at BugIn 13 on October 13, 1974 at OCIR, later that day the car won the K/Gas final against Lee Leighton with 11.81@110.

A bunch of years ago I picked up a whole pile of VW tools including an aligne bore set and bunch of factory VW Engine tools from this guy in the Midwest. His name was Rod, He sent me these 2 pictures with tools I bought.

Anyone remember this car?  He said the night shot picture where he is pulling the wheels was at Cordova Raceway Cordova Ill.

Look at all the Pennsylvania cars!  Must have been a small cell of VW drag racing out in western PA, with Pittsburgh on some of the cars.  Track appears to be the now-closed Pittsburgh International Dragway, AKA Keystone.

Gene Berg 1972 Winternationals?

Deano isn't this car from the mid 60s when Gene had Gene's Service in WA state? 


Title: Re: GASSER photo gallery
Post by: . on January 05, 2011, 21:15:11 pm
The lettering on the roof says "Gene's Service" and they are Washington license plates.
It seems like this photo was pre-1972.
Unless he kept the same car untouched until that time ?
 ???


Title: Re: GASSER photo gallery
Post by: deano on January 05, 2011, 22:19:54 pm
Mike and Richard, yes, I think it does date earlier than '72. I do know that photo was taken at Pomona, and it was with some other photos of the Lowry kids (Dean's). Probably closer to late '60s...


Title: Re: GASSER photo gallery
Post by: Fritter on January 05, 2011, 23:09:09 pm
Maybe Gene brought that car down from WA when he went to Socal to work with DDS and before he started his own business and had the famous Berg cars we all know about.

I found the location for the photoshoot for 'Made in Italy' by using Google Earth. I've never been to Rome, but I heard it was hard to find and open location. I did a search on Google Earth and looked around until I found somewhere open - it looked like an old air strip. So I told our photographer Paul about this location he went found out it was owned by the Italian Air Force and then he and the owner Papi Aurellio went and got permission to do the shoot. We were originally looking at shooting the car in Rome outside the Colosseum, but felt a drag racer needed to be on an open two lane blacktop.
It'd be good to get permission to hold a drag day there!   

So - thank you Google Earth!

The yellow chop is not french, it's Reinhard Hamburger's car from Hanau/Germany, hence the name "Flying Hamburger". Last I remember it was sold to the Netherlands.

Ivan,
The track location of shooting day is a monumental military air strip, or part that aircorps left to remeber the airfield couse it was the location where long time ago Whrite brothers's Flier took airborn and it was first time an airplate took off from Italian surface,  located in the actual monumental park of "Centocelle" (Transalted as "one thousand cells") that is a suburb of the city.
We entered in the park with a baywindow Westfalia with the car on a trailer passing trough garden chairs, granma's with children and running people, early in the mourning so anybody (policemans) did'nt saw us done in silence and in a hurry, we got the car on the strip and helped Paul shooting the pictures.
It would be nice to organize a drag day just in the city of Rome but unfortunately the strip is just 300 meters long/short and nobody could ever stop after a launch.
thanks.

ivan, thanks for the compliments. as has already 'told you my dear friend Luca (gobug) to be my first experience that "made in Italy" on 402 meters and the time' was 11.9 seconds. with a track with a little glue, no rev limiter, bosch 009 ignition distributor with normal, regular gasoline, and a compression of only 10 to 1 on the fore-and aerodynamic problems. for next season I will have 'a MSD, 116 octane gasoline, 14 to 1 compression and aerodynamic problems solved. for next year I intend to do 10 seconds. certainly I and my friend Luke (gobug) and "made in Italy" we will attend the "eupean bug.

Ron Groff's race car, he had a black street car that was very similar. He crashed this red car @ Carlsbad in 84. They left it in the weeds @ the top end of the track until the event was over. Never saw either one of them again.

Visited with Paul & Mark Schley yesterday and watched Mike Walraven's new Gasser movie. AMAZING! I was just blown away by the quality of the movie, the footage, the interviews...
The 2nd picture shows a poster made by the Schleys, featuring the cover of the DVD.

The Schleys had a wall painted by Ron Petro. It took Ron 7 weeks to complete the task! Artwork is about 6 foot/1.80m wide.
Second picture shows part of the collection. That's Christelle (Kiki) on the left, Fabien's wife. They both came along.

Thats what I thought! He was takeing autobody at cerrittoes when brent and I were there in about 1980-83, Seems like everyone there from time to time had a hand in helping chop that oval at school . Kinda amazeing looking back at the guys into VWs that where going to cerrittos back then!!

Jim Tusko ring a bell Danny?  Whatever happened to him?

Paul and Mark recently found a box full of contingency programs/stickers/etc., still in their envelops. Most of these NHRA envelops were never opened! There are some extremely cool NOS stickers in there (EMPI Power Rules, Lee Filters, Eelco, E-T Mags...)
And finally, a great surprise: Paul & Mark gave me a huge framed poster of the VW article, which was published in HOT ROD Magazine in 2007. WOW!
Thanks for the visit, guys! You rule!

Yes it looks like that could be it.  Too bad the names are hard to read from the 1/4 panel; I would be interested to know where the car was based out of.

Here's the link to the video:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-D_z1Zy5aRo

 lil screamin zonker ,paint scheme is a little bit different then yours may be it was after your video  ,here's a picture in keith bible with lil screamin zonker aside inch pincher too ,ned bug too  ,and ligthning bug too ::) so that picture was around 72/73 and in the title video it's wrtitten mid 70's
may be it was lil sreamin zonker without paint scheme and in new owner hand

may be it was lil sreamer zonker without paint scheme and in new owner hand
And new bonnet (hood) and rechopped the roof (different angle to the roof line) and added chrome trim to the sides… I think it's a different car altogether, but I may be wrong.


Title: Re: GASSER photo gallery
Post by: javabug on January 17, 2011, 22:02:04 pm
The hood is definitely odd, or appears that way.  It does look like there are enough differences to be another car.  The quality of the video certainly doesn't help.

mike on this picture from a empi motoring guide , there's the lil screamer zonker and it's written new jersey under the car , may be it was the county where  an empi dealer was , but may be the car come from the same aera ??? who knows

Thanks for the info Fabs and Uncle Keith.  What about the "Virginia" car under the Zonker?  It sorta does/doesn't look like a chop top.

Anyhow...just a curiosity about the car on the video because of being my "home" track and the rarity of hot rod and drag VWs in the area back then.  This isn't SoCal, you know...

Not sure where to put these pictures, so here ya go...
Visited with Paul & Mark Schley yesterday and watched Mike Walraven's new Gasser movie. AMAZING! I was just blown away by the quality of the movie, the footage, the interviews...
The 2nd picture shows a poster made by the Schleys, featuring the cover of the DVD.

Dear Stephane,
Thx for the kind words about the movie :)

It looks pretty similar - later tail-lights, no exhaust cutouts in the valance, blacked out engine bay, and even still having the engine lid seal in place and painted. Maybe it's a different car, maybe a later version.

In the "lost and found file" you can catch the Muppet from DAS. One of the last event we saw it was EBI1 in 2007.
The car was one of the two first european NéoGasser (FlashBack from K.Seume) and the only of them who still look like the same. The car is a '55 model modified in 1997 if I remember well.
DAS Muppret was sold by the previous DAS owner Nico and is now in the hands of Stephane Speelman from DAS Club.('62 grey cleen beetle from DAS with F4BRM's)
He is now working hard on it and plan to be at the next European Bug-In in july for racing.
He told me last night; "Working on the Muppet is like restoring the back of Monalisa's famous painting with the frame on it and without hang off the paint from the wall !"
Four years I did'nt saw the car and I still believe it's a true piece of art and also a piece of history for the revival about Gassers we knew those days !

Hi Mike , it a shame Nico sold the car , but good to see it is still is DAS .

Is Nico still active in the club ? is he on the lounge ?
Before EBI 1 , he was very kind and let us stay at his house and use his shower and kitchen. I remember he was planning to build an under ground garage in his cellar .

Like I rwote before, he totally stop Volkswagens 3 or 4 years ago.
No news since then. The Garage is build in his cellar. He sold the Muppet to continue work in his house.
Even he did'nt come anymore to the club or at the events, he is and still a great, great guy ! :) Life is making choices so dont balme him to make choices !

this has been found, and looks like it is being restored, this looks like a full on race car! found on a thread on thesamba..... the seat is centred in the middle, towards the back of the bus, and the metal behind the vw logo is cut away to allow the driver (kamikaze) to see to the end of the strip when he is pulling a wheelie - WOW!

Doug and I dated sisters (Karen and Trudy) back in 78-80 or so, and went on a few double dates in the "Muffin", good times, always alot of fun,  that car is famous for "much more" than being a famous race car-street car, if you know what I mean... ??? :o ;)   I also got to drive it a bit and made a few passes at Brotherhood Raceway (Terminal Island 1/8th mile) 7.20s if I remember correctly , but I do remember the sisters being a bit "faster" and harder to handle at the big end.......... :D  Great times..............sorry for going a little off topic.    Doug would agree.

Peter K is one very nice guy , He had run so many national drag records here ( et & mph) and won many events from 1970 to 1982 to he retired from racing .
All so a trip to New Zealand to match race a big block ford escort too. Car was shiped over there .
Peter K had just given us his old folders with Photo's , paper clippings , slides , record cards , magazines storys , and the big one , sponsor contract & guide lines from Camel Filter .
Rod recieved a jacket (Camel Filter ) from Peter K witch blew him away .

for those who have the latest ultra vw , there's a very nice colored picture of the LG II, ned bug II and IP II , and the photo was taken at the englishtown dragstrip  and it the text keith said that picture was taken  throught the windscreen of the race central(empi tour bus)
[attachment=1]

and i was remembering that picture of IP II ,NED bug II and LG II + lil screamin zonker ,and if you look closely in the background it's the race central bus and there's also 2 guys wearing LEE ELIMINATROR pants(may be the schleys bros) , and the driver of IP II wasn't darrell vittone , because EMPI was sold to FDY/ LEE ELIMINATORS at that time and it was jim carlson who was the driver

Which is why it didn't say that Darrell Vittone was the driver.. it just says the car was made famous by him and then later driven by Jim Carlson. It's cool to put two different photos of the same time and place.  :)

Yes, and that race would have been during Modified Eliminator against Texeria's Corvette. At that point, Darrell had won class (I/Gas), and then moved on to eliminations. Look where Darrell's eyes are going through the lights. Another great Alhadeff shot.

and the driver of IP II wasn't darrell vittone , because EMPI was sold to FDY/ LEE ELIMINATORS at that time and it was jim carlson who was the driver

Which is why it didn't say that Darrell Vittone was the driver.. it just says the car was made famous by him and then later driven by Jim Carlson. It's cool to put two different photos of the same time and place.  :)

I just found out that the IPII had yet another driver after Darrell drove it. Rick Johnson, who drove the Lee Eliminator bus (Wonder Lodge), also got behind the wheel at least once, before Filter Dynamics pulled the plug on the whole deal.

I'm betting it's a Thrush muffler bolted to the running board so that Hefler could claim contingency money due to any car that ran a Thrush muffler in competition. Contingency sponsorship is why cars from that era ran so many decals, but other manufacturers decreed you had to run the part to claim any prize money.

Deano? Is that right?

yes some similar stuff , but no flared fenders , no air scopp on the rear quater ip 2 don't have horn grills and it look like the car had brake drums and ip 2  had just 356 porsche brake drums with the outer edges milled off in front

after FDY was sold , the ip 2 was painted white again , who know maybe it's the car??

I think you're right Keith, now I look at the two side by side. The back of the rear side windows on both cars look to have a jerky direction change, not a smooth curve like a stock window (or the Goss chop for that matter), but now it seems that both are different and still not great curves! :D

Nico & Speedwell....Sorry I didn't reply earlier sbout Bug Magik.  I live about three hours away from Scooter's shop and would have to take a day off from work to go see him and ask him but I think it would be worth it!  I haven't been there for two years or so. When I last was at his shop I told him that he should take the car back out and even just display it at the Bug Jam in Dade City Florida (biggest VW show on the East Coast).  He said and thought that no one would be interested in seeing his old race car because the paint isn't perfect anymore and it has aged a bit (the paint is laquer and has cracked over time). I told him "NO!" that people would LOVE to see his car again!! He appreciated my enthusiasm and interest but never did anything with the car. It just sits in his shop.  Interesting thing about the paint job......He told me it was done by a hippie / artist that used to hang around his shop sometimes. If you look at the artwork on the car it isn't symetric.  If you look at the front of the car the front fender art is different from one side to the other. The art is unique as you look at the different parts of the car. Scooter didn't tell him how to paint it, he just let him do his thing on the car. The "artist" also painted VW murals on the inside walls of the shop as well and they are still there, dirty but still there. I'll call him and see if i can talk with him.

Sorry, there are just too many differences, the most noteworthy being:
a) IP2 had the windshield wiper bosses removed from the scuttle – this car has them
b) The side window profile is all wrong
c) The windshield shape is all wrong
d) The size of the sunroof is different
e) The white car looks like it started life as an Oval-window judging from the windshield pillars...
etc etc...

Yes, it would be great to see slaloms, gymkhanas or some sort of little track/handling competitions back during events. All you need is a little parking lot of some free space in a flat field to have fun.

I can remember talking to Bernie about painting his car and discussing the fact of paying homage to Tar Babe ....never thought it would re appear..let alone be in Scotland..and we would NEVER, EVER even dream that they would get to race side by side.. :)

 Yes it is... Steve and I are getting the car ready to go for the next drag day possibly next bug-in. Finally after 20+ years looking for the car I finally found it. We are doing a joint venture. We took it to VW drag day to have a tech official take a look and see what we have to do to make it track legal. Steve will still be driving the car. Will keep you guys updated.

When I interviewed Lyle Cherry of Fort Worth, Texas, he told me he built/worked on two cars named Small Wonder, one of them was a chop top. I do not know if this car shown, is one of them, or, there was more than one Small Wonder VW gasser. Rick Johnson drove the car that he worked on.

I never had a chance to see the Groom & Soul VW run/leap, but it has always been of great interest. Very little in print on it... Got any more details?

Yeah, but I don't know much about it other than that. It looks to be a usual "gasser" car, like the old Topolino body-shell style.
Looking at the photo, it's probably Castlereagh (Sydney) from the mid-70s.

For those that don't know the "camel Filters" car, it was a supercharged 2L VW motor, all built in a tin shed on a small farm miles from anywhere by 2 brothers who obviously got a bit bored!
No disrespect to the Keegans, incredible self-taught skills, that little Beetle was running in the mid-10s around 1966/67...........

First post after reading through.
 Well at a few races I have seen this car. I have never really spoken until the owner until this past year. He built this car in the early 70's and has been the only one to ever race it. He began his love affair with VW's  after he read a hot rod magazine article in 1969 and then another one on a fast corvair. He put the two together and built this chevy corvair powered chop top named Rumble Bug. It has been racing since the 70's but has NEVER made a successful pass. I believe his best pass to date is a low 14 second run. For over 30 years this man has been trying to get this corvair powered bug down the track but can not make it happen. Wether it is a lack of knowledge, bad parts or extremely bad luck...it just does not work. It is actually a sad story as this man is so very stuck on what he read in that single magazine, he will NOT put a VW motor in this car.
 He has recently brought it to maybe 4 races in the past 5 years and that is the MOST I have ever seen this car. I told him that when he wants to sell it, or give up to give me a call. Aside from the chevy motor and big wing, it a period correct original gasser.

 I remember that body on the roof of some sort of repair shop in Santa Ana. I first saw it riding my bike on the Santa Ana river trail in the 70's, it was there for years. I last saw it in the 90's , it was just down the street from my shop in Stanton, it was for sale $800 or something like that.  Never saw it as a whole car.  Glad to see it still exists.

So it's possible the body never made it on the road. If I didn't had to ship it all the way to Belgium , I would have bought it in 2011. It's probbably a good base for a quarterflash replica. anybody any plans ??

Only just noticed this, a full 13 months later haha... if it's the same car  this ended up on a set of 13 & 15" DDS wheels, and was finally split for parts sometime in the mid 90's - I bought the wheels off it. I have no pictures so can't confirm but it looks the same car from memory.

About 10 years ago. I had the privilege of Lee asking me to dyno the motor from the Jouster...He had freshened it up, and said he would love to see it run in something. The plan was to put it in Quik and Dirty. I got it warmed up, Blower with 2 Strombergs on it, and it started knocking. He had forgotten to tighten the flywheel...I called him, he came and picked it up, and never got around to fixing it before he shut his shop down....I tell you what, that thing sounded MEAN for a 1641...

The Tickled Pink drag bug we built in the mid 80s is doing very well in Italy.
Makes me happy to see it survived racing during the 30 years since I raced it.

Nico thank you!  8) 8)
Paolo the new owner/driver and I have been in contact.
I will be sending him all the Tickled Pink awards to be reunited with the car once again.
Tickled Pink received 1st place car show awards at the Small Car Specialties Showdown, the VW Classic and the VW Jamboree in both 87 and 88.
It is also the only race car I have won a race and then received actual money for winning.
At a VW event in Bakersfield we won Bracket A and they paid us $400. :)

 :) :) Tickled Pink under construction.
Perhaps it survived because it was a very stable car at speed.
I wonder if that was in part due to the caster we built into it by pie cutting the tunnel behind the front beam to increase caster.
It was straight and safe at 100+mph.

Great pictures! I've started a thread about the car there : http://cal-look.no/lounge/index.php/topic,26402.0.html

This is my fathers first racecar at Middle Tennessee Dragway also known as Buffalo Valley (I have the print of this pic. now) had to be in 1974 or 75 the car was purple before being painted white. It was sold after the 75 season when he built a 1967 Fiat which later became the widow maker and later became the snowtiger in Hawaii. I just located the Fiat and I am working to bring it home!

It did spend a few decades in Puerto Rico as a drag car, but was bought back by the Schley Bros a while back and has since been restored.

St Moritz is one of the best looking chop tops ever. The rear side windows are more like the Goss car than Tar Babe, but proportionally it's just spot on.

I agree , most people only see it is chopped when a stock is standing next to it . The original shape is well preserved

I think part of that is the flush fit windows - you see the total height of the window rather than just the clear bit.
I have to admit, I was rather jealous of you when Udo sold it, even though I'd got no money to buy it and was in no position to race it... Lovely car.

Post by: samotorsport on January 20, 2020, 21:35:17 pm
Thanks , but actually i didn t buy it from Udo , he sold it to Jeroen who is driving the Flying Bug now .
I was looking for a rolling chassis in 2013 when i posted an Ad ob a dragracing forum .
Udo contacted me and gave me the contact to Jeroen .
So i have to admit , i was pretty lucky to get this car .
Udo helped me a lot on my first engine . He was happy when i told him i wanna build a typ 1 engine and staying with the oldschool 1835 cc concept .
