Keeping us on the road

Carole and The YesWeCan CamperVan wish to thank these guys, especially for the time they donated, their hard work and their skill in repairing the VW’s 1971 engine to keep us on target for our cross country drive for MG Awareness.

Ronnie Pugh’s Bug Haus in Richmond, Virginia

 
Ronnie Pugh, owner of the Bug Haus, Richmond, VA, is seen here checking the oil leak and clutch. He also replaced the gear shift rod coupling. Ronnie worked beyond normal business hours on Friday 11th November so we could make it to the MGFA Carolinas Chapter Annual Meeting in Durham, NC, on time the next morning.

Full Moon Bus Club at their Thanksgiving Campout in Awendaw, South Carolina

Here you can see the ‘Full Moon Bus Club (FMBC)’ guys replacing the clutch; a tough job which took hours and hours of their time when they should have been relaxing at their South Carolina Coastal group’s Thanksgiving campout at Awendaw, during the weekend of 18-20 November 2011. The 1971 engine had not been taken out in many a year, and neither had the rear bumper been taken off. A few rusty bolts proved no match for these hardy southerners and their determination to help our cause!

Wolfsburg West


A special thanks to owner Carla Moore who sent us vital parts free of charge and also went to the added expense of sending them overnight all the way from their warehouse in California to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to make sure one of the FMBC members could bring them to the weekend meeting.
Check out their catalogue at http://wolfsburgwest.com even if you are not a VW owner, to see a fascinating array of parts and gain a glimpse of what keeps these wonderful classic vehicles humming along! 🙂
