Chalk-A-Bug is a 1967 VW Beetle painted in chalk board paint that allows people to draw or write messages on it! Perfect for Charity Events, Birthdays, Wedding Send Offs, Car Shows, Kids Events, Festivals, etc.
Ok enough with the extra alternator, fixed the original and now my best tuner is on it. Going to maybe even get a little faster now!
Took everyone's added input on the last, got rid of the chain and sprocket, the non pressure other one and here is the product. What do you think now?!?!?
Edit: also added a air cleaner
Everyone made fun of the chain on the last one. I think I fixed it this time.....now am I doing this right?!?

Last classic VW Beetle rolls off the line:
On July 30, 2003, the last of 21,529,464 Volkswagen Beetles built since World War II rolls off the production line at Volkswagen’s plant in Puebla, Mexico. One of a 3,000-unit final edition, the baby-blue vehicle was sent to a museum in Wolfsburg, Germany, where Volkswagen is headquartered.The car produced in Puebla that day was the last so-called “classic” VW Beetle, which is not to be confused with the redesigned new Beetle that Volkswagen introduced in 1998. The roots of the classic Beetle stretch back to the mid-1930s, when the famed Austrian automotive engineer Dr. Ferdinand Porsche met German leader Adolf Hitler’s request for a small, affordable passenger car to satisfy the transportation needs of the German people Hitler called the result the KdF (Kraft-durch-Freude)-Wagen(or “Strength-Through-Joy” car) after a Nazi-led movement ostensibly aimed at helping the working people of Germany; it would later be known by the name Porsche preferred: Volkswagen, or “people’s car.”
What did you call it, punch bug, punch buggy, or.......? It was punch bug for me growing up!

The rain at 80% and thunderstorms possible for Saturday and 50% Saturday left me no choice. Swap meet has been rescheduled for June 13, 2020 and new rain out June 14, 2020. Please share!
The aftermath of last year's local touch a truck and burger wars event. The kids had a ball!
Everything is coming together for an awesome day of cool cars and automotive fellowship.
Although it’s a Volkswagon car show, the local hot rod car clubs have asked if we could slice off a few acres to show their rides. Well of course I said it would be fine. We all need our car shows.
We can expect great weather,..... with some overcast.
There is a fabulous civil war naval museum that’s opening there doors to accommodate us. (They have air conditioning and clean bathrooms). 😉
I’ve had calls from swap meet folks from as far away as North Carolina and Florida. (People are just sick and tired of staying home).
There’s FREE onsite camping Friday and Saturday. Toilets and hand stations onsite.
If you’ve never been to this show, I strongly encourage you to try it. Just because its FREE doesn’t mean the effort isn’t there.
See y’all at the show. 🤪
Everyone say hello to #edwardthebeetle 🙂 He’s a full-sized 1967 VW Beetle made almost entirely from driftwood. And he has functional doors! 😃
My most ambitious project yet, this started out as a way to procure a ‘new-to-me’ truck and travel trailer from Black Creek Motors. But during these last few months of completion on it, it became something more.
My father, Allan Edward Witcombe, recently passed away. 8 weeks in the hospital and then palliative care was made more difficult, for him and us, due to Covid protocol. In the last few weeks of his life we, as a family, were only able to see him through the first-floor window and talking by phone.
Although his body was failing him, his spirits were always bright when I talked with him or saw him. And I know he relished seeing every update I sent or showed him of my progress on the driftwood beetle. His eyes would light up and he would always say how proud he was of me.
I was scheduled for another visit and wanted to bring him a personalized gift that I could display outside his window, a vintage B.C. license plate made from driftwood with his initials, A.E.W.
He passed peacefully the day before my visit to him. I know his eyes would have lit up to see his license plate, and I am proud to display it here on Edward the Beetle.
My Dad passed on to me his innate ‘can do’ spirit. If he had a creative project in mind, he just went ahead and did it. And if there was a technique or process he had not learned yet, he would learn and implement them exceedingly well in his own unique style. Thank you, Dad, for showing me that I can do or create whatever I set my mind to! Even if there is a few remarks of “Bloody Hell!” strewn about during the creative process 😉
(#edwardthebeetle can be viewed at Black Creek Motors on the Old Island Highway. Please respect physical distancing if you wish to view.)
