**PLEASE REFER TO THIS FIRST POSTING - AND/OR OUR ONGOING SAMBA AD http://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=196458 - FOR ANY IMPORTANT UPDATES--THANKS**

-----

Hi Folks,

This year's Time Machines event will be unique & special as the organizers have recently told me that the "Featured Marque" this year will be none other than Volkswagen!

We've been sponsoring the "VW only" class in this very large & long-running Connecticut antique auto show (with large flea market) for many years now--always open to all stock & modified VWs, at least 25 years old or older--and it seems the organizers have finally sensed the slow but sure growth of the class and interest in old VWs in general in our state (thanks in no small part to the CT VW Association - www.ctvwa.org and also Chuck Pisconski's fantastic "Litchfield" and "Terryville" annual events).

I have yet to see the official Time Machines web site - http://www.tbirdsofconn.org/timemach.html - updated with information about VW being this year's featured marque, but I can say that the event will be happening on Sunday, July 24th, 2011, at the Guilford Fairgrounds in Guilford, CT, rain or shine. And, as noted, all VWs, stock & modified, up to and including this year's cut-off year (a sliding 25-year old or older scale--meaning that VWs up to & including model year 1986) can participate this year.

With VW being this year's Featured Marque, we'll also have some sort of "special display area" prominent on the show field to show off our cars, and Common Gear Antique VW Society, in addition to sponsoring the VW class, as we have always done, is also working to try & make this year just a little bit more special than usual.

Along the way, I've been going back and look at some of my old print photos from past Time Machines events (which up until a few years ago, were held in Durham, CT), and will try to post a few in subsequent installments.

If I happen to have mis-identified any of the photos, by the way, please do feel free to chime in an correct me--always nice to be able to present accurate info...

Here are a couple of "official reports" currently published at our site:

2010 = http://home.comcast.net/~commonsteve/TimeMachines2010/TM10Report.html - and also Greg Mattesen's companion page: http://home.comcast.net/~commonsteve/TimeMachines2010/GMTM10.html

2009 = http://home.comcast.net/~commonsteve/TimeMachines2009/TM09Report.html

2008 = http://home.comcast.net/~commonsteve/TimeMachines2008/TM08VWReport.html

And here's also our ongoing Samba ad: http://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=196458

*4/26/2011 UPDATE - As of yesterday I've received some special commemorative incentives that I had ordered, to be able to hand out to properly-registered participating Antique Volkswagens in Time Machines 2011 car show. There are only 75 pieces of these special commemorative incentives, and they will be handed out to the first 75 Antique VWs to get there, and get themselves properly registered and onto the show field, within the Featured Marque class (this does not include flea market vehicles and also does not include VWs that may have chosen to register into some other car show class). The Time Machines 2011 car show is rain or shine, as it has always been, so “I had best intentions of being there” is not going to cut it--sorry. Anyway, I figured we had to do something a little special in recognition of VW being this year’s Time Machines “Featured Marque.” OK, that’s all I’m going to say for now!

*5/18/2011 UPDATE - I have a supply of the Official Time Machines 2011 printed flyers for the event in-hand now also, and have scanned all of the printed information on them--the scans are shown in a later installment to this thread (near the top of page 2), but here are the links for quick reference:

Main Flyer Page Top: http://images.thesamba.com/vw/gallery/pix/806851.jpg

Main Flyer Page Bottom (with preregistration forms):
http://images.thesamba.com/vw/gallery/pix/806852.jpg

List of Show Car Classes: http://images.thesamba.com/vw/gallery/pix/806853.jpg

Front outside of folded flyer:
http://images.thesamba.com/vw/gallery/pix/806850.jpg

Back outside of folded flyer:
http://images.thesamba.com/vw/gallery/pix/806854.jpg

I have also dropped off a supply of the flyers at Cardone & Daughter Automotive in Westbrook, CT, so if you're in the area, you can also grab one there directly.

Please check back, post up any quesitons, comments, etc., also look for any old Time Machines VW photos from the past that you may have and post 'em!

Happy Volkswagening, and talk to you again soon,

Stock Steve

I was able to put my hands on some Time Machines 1992 VW images first (I'm sorry, but, for whatever reason, I had to convert my scanned images to gifs for the system to accept them--if I can somehow figure out how to upload conventional jpg's again, I'll definitely do so...).

(EDIT: I was able to upload a jpg of this picture from another computer, so I replaced the gif. The jpg looks better on the page.)

This looks like our old buddy Bob Dorr's turquoise '63 Bug. That might even be Bob himself standing behind the Bug (green shirt & sunglasses). Bob was the hard-working president of CVA for many years in the early 1990s.

Here's another '92 picture--looks like Bill Silvestri's cherry '68 Ghia--prior to the subsequent fitment of "2-liter" Porsche wheels. What a nice car. We understand it's with a new owner these days.

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

That looks like Mark Andstrom in the background of the shot, looking toward the camera, next to the maroon custom Bug. Mark formerly ran a very highly trusted VW shop in Central Village, CT. I believe he is involved in another different career these days.

More vintage Time Machines 1992...

First, Dan McCarville's New York-based '65 or so Deluxe Bus--magnificent. That looks to be Dan in the back of the Bus, in the tie-dye t-shirt.

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

I do not know if Dan still owns this Bus.

Dan was seen at Time Machines 2010 driving a super kool Citroen!

And here's the Pachecos' superb Zenith Blue '67 Bug from Massachusetts:

No idea if this vehicle is still kicking around either...

Definitely appreciate your & Mary's very faithful TM participation for so many years, Clay, either with your hi-roof in the show, or over in the flea market area, with our compatriots Chuck and Tom also.

2011 should be quite interesting, with the organizers finally having selected VW as the featured marque!

Let's hope for no rain this year!

Now we get into the realm of Time Machines 1992 cars for which I presently do not have identification. I may be able to search through old newsletters at some point to come up with some IDs, vehicle/owner info to go along with any of these images, please do let me know or chime in here. Thanks.

After these, we'll be jumping to Time Machines 1997, for a few scanned photos I found from that year...

Steve,

The black, big window beetle looks very much like Peter Cook's '58, based on the interior color and mudflaps. Peter is still the BSVWOC (Bay State VW owner's club) president. I also know that he still has the '58 and it's running good with a freshly rebuilt carb.

Thanks Stan--I'd agree that Peter's '58 could very well be that black Sedan. Glad to hear it's still running strong!

The only other possibility that springs to mind this minute is another black '58 that was MA-based at that time: Mike Dane's (though I think it's now been living up in VT with a new owner for several years). Definitely will have to do some research on this next chance I get...

Here are a bunch of 1997 images--I'll do my best to provide some identification where I can...

Mike Berch and his '57 Sunroof Bug:

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

John Kelly's '66 (I think) Camper. John was also a hard-working CVA president for many years, following Bob Dorr's stint. Thanks to John for all his great efforts developing the club and keeping it rolling for so many years!

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

There's that beautiful white early '60s Bug again--I will run across the owner's name soon, and add it. As I recall, he was from Milford, CT:

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

Jimmy Arcucci's beautiful semi-custom '70 Bug:

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

I *think* this beautiful tan '71 or so Super Beetle was owned by George Oleyar. Note the wooden Bug-shaped display plaques, and also a wooden Bug engine replica displayed in asee-thru case in the car's trunk:

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

Kool Kamo Thing. I miss the CT blue plates...

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

Another view of the Kamo Type 181 Thing. That looks like Chuck P. and his family visiting next door with Clay & Mary Smith & their Hi Roof Panel Truck:

Finally, Clay & Mary Smith's super cool '62 Hi Roof Panel Truck from Eastern CT!

P.S.: More old TM photos coming--I have groups of scanned shots from 1998 and 2002 set to go--just need to find a little time to upload 'em--stay tuned...And also still looking thru my files for other possible previous years' Time Machines images to be able to share...

Let's look at some Time Machines 1998 VW images today. Looked like another nice day in Durham, CT...

These are dash plaques that have been made up especially for VW Class participants in the Time Machines car shows, from the year 2000 and onward (these are *completely separate* from the "official" Time Machines dash plaques that cars get when they register for the show).

They are flexible material with magnetic backing and I think either 1 1/2" x 3" or 2" x 3" in size. We order these from Rallye Productions in Waukesha, WI; they do a nice job with them, and they are reasonably priced.

The '04 and '06 plaque artworks are originals, courtesy noted Type III specialist John Jaranson--thanks again John!

Anyway, I generally walk around and hand 'em out once the VWs get themselves parked in the VW display class.

Yes, we, ahem, may be doing one again for 2011...

"The featured car this year will be Volkswagen."

Just noticed that key phrase on the organizers' official event info page (within the 2nd paragraph):

http://www.tbirdsofconn.org/timemach.html

All right!

Not that I didn't know it was "official" previously, but it always helps to see it in the organizers' "approved for publication to the general public" press releases!

Now, to get them to change that goofy Mopar cartoon at the top of the info page--that's SO LAST YEAR...

Finally, our VW buddy Mike Bonczewski, better known for his superb, super low-miles Savannah Beige '70 Bug--but this time showing his "Chevy" or something?! We love ya, Mike! If you do parts business with a certain VW dealership in Stratford, CT, you might recognize Mike from behind the parts counter...
