VWs in "Gumball Rally" (1976)
Rome
This movie has already been mentioned in this thread.

Here, the brown Rolls-Royce narrowly avoids colliding with a white pickup in a small town. The Rolls drives into a used car lot, comes out unscathed, but creates a chain reaction of collisions and driver panic. Tan Squareback on right. The pickup smashes into a black 1966 Beetle (note there is a man clinging in the pickup bed), with a white Squareback in background. More VWs in the overhead shot. A panicked driver backs her green Mustang into the repair shop showroom. The action implies the car will run into the red late Beetle on display, but you don't see that in the sequence.

Karmann Ghia "roadster" in Dr. Dolittle movie trailer
Rome
In a short ad/trailer for this movie (planned release Jan. 2020), actor Robert Downey, Jr. "auditions" a live parrot. It sits on a nicely done Ghia model which does not have the folded-down convertible top attached. Lack of roof could categorize the car as a roadster. Parrot presses the gas pedal of the model, and the Ghia realistically peels out off the backdrop onto the studio stage. "Drives" through some stacked boxes and keeps going.


Here's the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIcCwLTfgIw

1970/71 Ghia Coupe in "Charlie's Angels"
Rome
1979 TV episode "Disco Angels", the bad guy (actor Zalman King) walks out of his apartment past this Ghia. I did not notice the large dent in the left rear quarter panel until I prepped the photo. Cannot determine if the color is 1970 L10 Pampas Yellow, or 1971 L11 Lemon Yellow. IMDB information for the show indicates the location as 13210 Admiral Drive, Marina del Rey, California.

Early '60's Beetle in "My Three Sons" (1971)

Early '60's Beetle in "My Three Sons" (1971)
Rome
Episode named "Debbie", a college freshman named Debbie (Brooke Bundy) puts a large dent into the upper portion of the left rear fender on her '65 (?) Beetle in the parking lot against the car driven by the Douglas' youngest son Ernie (Barry Livingston). She sweet-talks him and his family to fix the car for free. Appears to have slanted-back vent wing post and thin pillar, larger side windows which started with the '65 model year. Mr. Douglas (Fred MacMurray) pounds the dent out on his front lawn while middle son Chip and Uncle Charley (William Demarest) assist. Final shot shows Ernie holding a heat lamp against the freshly painted and remounted fender. Uncle Charley's hand is blue from paint overspray.

Note the "Cal-Look" trimless window rubber, the rear fender gravel guard, and the 10-slot beauty rings. Car was originally painted a light color (L87 Pearl White?) as seen by the front hood hinge and the exposed taillamp space. SoCal car was solid enough to use factory jack.

MeTV channel; show was on while I was waking up on a day off so that I missed the first few minutes.

Early '60's Beetle in "My Three Sons" (1971)

Episode named "Debbie", a college freshman named Debbie (Brooke Bundy) puts a large dent into the upper portion of the left rear fender on her '62-'64 Beetle in the parking lot against the car driven by the Douglas' youngest son Ernie (Barry Livingston). She sweet-talks him and his family to fix the car for free. I could not see if the car already had the wide license plate light (1964), but it clearly had the '62-on larger taillamp, the vertical vent wing post and smaller windows up thru the '64 model year. Mr. Douglas (Fred MacMurray) pounds the dent out on his front lawn while Chip and Uncle Charley (William Demarest) assist. Final shot shows Chip holding a heat lamp against the freshly painted and remounted fender. Uncle Charley's hand is blue from paint overspray.

1961 Beetle on Sunshine Skyway, Tampa Bay, Florida
Rome
In ~ 1990 while visiting my mom in the Sarasota area, her German friend Lore let me drive her spare car while on my vacation- their purchased-new-in-Germany L87 Pearl White 1961 Beetle. I enjoyed washing it and looking after minor items such as a valve adjustment. Here I am driving south on I-275 on the Sunshine Skyway bridge south of St. Petersburg. The original routing of the highway is on the right, which remained intact as a fishing pier after the tragic collision of a freighter against a bridge pier in 1980.

1964 Ghia Cabriolet on Storm King Highway, NY
Rome
After being off the road for about 3 years due to a fuel starvation issue, I resolved it recently. Took the car out today for a drive to NY Rt 218, which is a twisty road along the west side of the Hudson River. The section between West Point Military Academy and Cornwall is known as the Storm King Highway. I got lucky that there were no other cars on this small turn-out so that I could get a few shots of my Ghia. Viewed looking southbound down river.

VW buggy in "Supervixens" (1975)

Nice buggy gets some off-road driving in this Russ Meyer movie. Don't know if its a Funco, Chenoweth or other frame. Ball joint front beam. During some driving shots, as well as the helmet, you see the name "Steen" which would be off-road racer John Steen. Gal is the daughter of hotel owner who drives an orange Baja Beetle. She sits on the pad above what appears to be the centrally mounted air cleaner during the driving scenes. Early GeneBerg carb linkage with the vertical stem. Unknown dual-throat dual carbs. 12V generator.

Shot of entire engine is flipped in the movie!

'58 - '63 Beetle being towed/fully lifted at the opening credits of this Russ Meyer movie. My guess of the color is Gulf Blue.

Cal-Look Beetle in "Ford v Ferrari" movie
Rome
Seen behind actor Christian Bale (playing Ken Miles) in the Hi-Ho grocery store parking lot is a dark green '60's Beetle. Euro blade bumper, seemingly wide rear track, and what could be polished/chromed Empi 5-spoke rims. A few years too soon. See it in the movie trailer-

My cat with 1983 Vanagon
Rome
My 8 YO cat Flitz resting on a large tree log in front of my '83 aircooled Vanagon. I bought the Vanagon in northern NJ in 1999; was originally from California so that it was really solid rust-wise. Engine came out after the first year due to crazy high oil consumption of 1 qt every 50 miles.

My cat with 1964 Ghia Cabriolet

My cat with 1964 Ghia Cabriolet
Rome
In August this year I finally got serious about diagnosing a fuel delivery problem on my '64 Ghia. The rear was jacked up so i could run a small cable into the fuel line from the rear to the front, to check for possible obstructions. My cat Flitz was wandering outside, saw me, and checked out the car since he was used to it being on the ground. Yeah, it's cramped for space in there. About 2 yrs ago I replaced the Tri-Mil hotdog muffler with the Berg Ghia 1 3/8" header and single QP muffler, which I had on there for years before.

My cat with 1964 Ghia Cabriolet
Rome
In Nov. 2013 I was doing some minor engine work on my Ghia in the garage. My 2 YO cat Flitz was curious about the rarely opened engine compartment, and took a closer look. Engine is a stock 1600 with Weber 40 IDFs, 28mm venturies, Gene Berg carb linkage. At the time I had installed a ceramic-coated Tri-Mil hotdog muffler.

Robbie from CA in upstate NY
Rome
As I was driving to meet a friend for dinner on Aug. 21, 2019 I was pleasantly surprised to see this very nice Bus on US Rt 17 near Middletown, NY. Only months later did I discover that it's Robbie, from this thread-https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=720140&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0

1965 Karmann Ghia Cabriolet without headliner
Rome
Nicely done Ghia at the Aircooled Gathering VW meet in Flanders, NJ 9/2014. The headliner and padding was omitted, but the exposed top frame and wood bows were nicely painted. By definition, the lack of such interior parts would make the car a convertible, not a cabriolet.

Wide shot of most of the Ghias at the show. When the row to the right was full, additional cars were parked on the left adjacent to the Type 2s. The pink '65 at left had no headliner nor roof padding installed.

The Central NJ VW Society was able to have space reserved for VWs among nearly 1000 classic cars organized by the Flemington Speedway Historical Society. The large field was located in central western NJ near the town of Lambertville. This was the VW's 3rd time at the event. Fine, sunny day that started in the low 40's.
