Splittie van in Emergency! (1977)
Rome
TV show, season 6 episode 19 "The boat". Paramedics Gage and DeSoto (actors Randolph Mantooth, Kevin Tighe) walk past a customized mid 1960's van to inspect a V8-powered ski boat that is parked in Station 51's rear lot. The van is sometimes seen in other episodes, parked in the street. Note the Jackman wheels, the Miller-Havens rear flares and side air scoop. The 2nd shot is blurred because I clicked about 1/2 second too late as the shot is transitioning to the fuel filler cap. I only noticed the Baywindow bus in background during my image editing. In 2nd shot, boat owner is Station 51's mechanic played by Richard Bakalyan standing at right. He has another tie-in to VW machinery, stealing the blue Meyers Manx dune buggy in "The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes" along with his mob boss played by Cesar Romero.

1200 cc and 1600 cc Type 1 muffler comparison

1200 cc and 1600 cc Type 1 muffler comparison
Rome
Since the 1200 cc 40 hp (34 Ps DIN) engine utilizes a 64 mm stroke crank and the 1600 cc a 69 mm stroke, the 1600's engine width is 2 x 5 mm = 10 mm ~ 3/8" wider than the 1200. Mufflers were made similarly wider. I set a new German-made Eberspaecher 1200 muffler back-to-back with a Walker 1600 muffler. Aligned the left flanges with a bolt. The width difference is evident on the right flanges.

Steering wheel colors 1963/1964 Ghia

Steering wheel colors 1963/1964 Ghia
Rome
Comparison of steering wheel colors and horn bar styles. My Aug. 1963 Ghia Coupe (L 532 Polar Blue) had an L 395 ice blue steering wheel from a '63 per the semicircular horn ring. A PO had painted the entire steering wheel flat black, but I was able to polish off the black to reveal the original color.

The ivory steering wheel is the factory color L466 Silver Beige and is the original factory wheel on my Feb. 1964 Ghia Cabrio (L87 Pearl White). It has the correct 1964 (also 1965) style horn bar with the larger finger pad, and no semicircle bar. Leather steering wheel wrap vs perforated vinyl wrap on the '63 wheel.

VW "heritage" in Porsche Spyder, "Autopsy: The last hours of James Dean"
Rome
TV show, 2018. A Los Angeles-based forensic pathology expert examines evidence of the circumstances and activities leading up to the tragic death of actor James Dean in 1955. Dean was involved in a major accident when driving his new Porsche 550 Spyder in central California. His German mechanic Rolf Wuetherich from the purchasing dealer Competition Motors (Hollywood, CA.) rode with him. as Dean was driving the car to a road race in Salinas, CA to enable the complicated, 4-cam "Fuhrmann" engine to break in. The recreation shows Dean first looking at the Porsche at the dealer which he bought only the week before. Unfortunately the car shown here is not a 550 Spyder, but a replica of its successor the 718 RSK Spyder. Note the '66-style VW wheel cooling slots. I've seen replicas of the RSK being either rear-engined, or more upscale versions using a mid-engine layout. The engine in this one has a red-painted VW doghouse fan shroud and air cleaners that appear to be the typical ones for Weber 34ICT single-throats. You can see the front swaybar, typical of Beetles as of 1960. There is also an old newsreel film segment where a '58+ golden-green Beetle (diamond green?) drives past a KFC. Shot of photo with Dean as boy with his parents has a Porsche Type 64 (Berlin-Rome racer) to the left! Period photo of Dean with the actual 550 Spyder, most likely at Competition Motors, has Beetles at left. Man at right is friend and driving coach Bill Hickman, who later became famous as the driver of the black Dodge Charger in the movie "Bullitt" (1968).

TV show (season 5, episode 17) named "Right at home". Paramedics John Gage and Roy DeSoto (actors Randolph Mantooth, Kevin Tighe) tend to a man and his young son in an overturned Splittie camper. Dr Kelly Brackett (Robert Fuller) wearing the white lab coat is on a field assignment from his usual hospital base with the medical helicopter, and also assists with medical attention. We don't see how the accident happened. Bus appears to have a large "Dynaflow" type muffler on a header.

Driving back from the Connecticut VW Association meet in Westbrook, Connecticut this afternoon in my '77 Beetle, I wanted to stop at the BP gas station in Elmsford to photograph the Beetle with the large "Muffler Man"/ Paul Bunyan on site. The gas station is at the northwest corner of NY Rt 9A and the Cross-Westchester Expressway I-287. While waiting for the light to turn green from the off-ramp, I spotted my Ghia friend rbfara across the intersection in his fine '60 Ghia Cabrio. I turned into the gas station, and rb was able to back up onto the property. He happened to be coming back from a FLAPS just up the street- a total coincidence that we were at the same light. We took some shots of our cars; here is his. More info about these statues: https://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/37422

Pre-production Squareback at home in 1964

Pre-production Squareback at home in 1964
Rome
From my dad's huge family photo collection; a 720 dpi scan of a Kodachrome slide. Taken in 1964 at our home in Southern Calif. north of Santa Monica. Dad was a field service engineer for VW Pacific in Culver City. VW imported some Squarebacks one or two years before the original market introduction (late '65? for '66 model year) to be distributed among the employees for evaluation, and for service and Parts market preparation. It's possible that it was designated for my mother who first learned to drive a few years earlier in a Dodge Valiant, though she never mastered a manual transmission. Dad's regular Beetle company car is next to it. The flowers are mom's talent.

From my dad's huge family photo collection; a 720 dpi scan of a Kodachrome slide. Taken in 1964 at our home in Southern Calif. north of Santa Monica. Dad was a field service engineer for VW Pacific in Culver City. VW imported some Squarebacks one or two years before the original market introduction (late '65? for '66 model year) to be distributed among the employees for evaluation, and for service and Parts market preparation. It's possible that it was designated for my mother who first learned to drive a few years earlier in a Dodge Valiant, though she never mastered a manual transmission. Dad's regular Beetle company car is next to it. The flowers are mom's talent.

'62 Beetle in Ontario, Canada 1999
Rome
My friend Bill S from Connecticut, John K from CT and I drove to Michigan in May 1999 to the Michigan Vintage VW meet at VW of America's HQ at Auburn Hills. Bill and I both enjoy driving our VWs "fast". I'm in my '64 Ghia Cabrio. Bill and John are passing me in Bill's all-original low mileage '62 which was originally sold in France. My Ghia's 185/65 tires give an approx. 5% optimistic speedometer reading. Porsche 912 tachometer.

EMPI Sportster buggy in The Six Million Dollar Man
Rome
1974, season 2, episode 11 named "The peeping blonde". Col. Steve Austin (actor Lee Majors) is driving reporter Victoria Webster (Farrah Fawcett, Majors' actual wife at the time) in the desert in a nicely built red/orange Sportster. You can see the orange plastic wind wings on the sides of the windshield, also a holder for arrows. Large capacity "quite" muffler, and large "NASA" pulley guard. The bad guys ambush them and steal the buggy. Austin runs X-country and passes them, causing them to stop by rolling a boulder into their path at a narrow point on the road. He pulls off the Sportster's roll bar (!), hammer-drills it into the rock face with his bionic arm, traps the 2 guys and bends the bar around them to restrain them.

1967 Castilian Yellow Karmann Ghia Cabriolet
Rome
My friend Bill S' photos of his 1967 Castilian Yellow Ghia, a factory color offered only for the 1967 model year (code L 10 K). Both shots were taken in Rocky Hill, Connecticut in August 2020 near the ferry that goes across the Connecticut River. He bought the car in April 2014 from a well known VW collector in southern New Hampshire. It is largely original, but was repainted by the PO at a local trade school.

Rome
Episode "Hula Angels" takes place in Honolulu, Hawaii. The antagonist Stacy Parrish (Joanna Cassidy) is monitoring the ransom money drop-off in her '79 Cabrio. Color appears to be K6V River Blue metallic, though at the end of the car chase the color looks much more like 97B Ancona metallic. In the background on the other side of the street is a white 1960's Ghia Coupe, and a blue 411 Sedan. Angel Kelly Garrett (Jaclyn Smith) was riding a pedal ricksha and nearly catches up as Stacy and her accomplice Amy (Patch Mackenzie) quickly leave. The other 2 angels (Kris Munroe, Julie Rogers) along with Bosley commandeer the white truck and give chase. The VW is not damaged during the chase.

VWs at Pattersonville, New York Thruway rest area
Rome
May, 1998. Several members of the "Der Kaefer Fahrer" club from throughout New England and New York met up at the rest area west of Albany, NY to continue west to the Michigan Vintage VW Club meet at VW's Auburn Hills, MI HQ. We have (L to R):
-Guy M (ME), black '52
-Bill P (NH) red '53
-Steve H (ME), '51
-Norman M (ME), white '67
-Pat A (NY), blue '73 Super Beetle
-Rome (NY), green '77
-Bill C (NH), red/white '49 Hebmueller

Not seen is a white Thing from the local VW club which met us there and convoyed with us to Utica NY. Our convoy traveled into Canada at the 1000 Islands, met up with Canadian VW friends at the rest area in Woodstock, ONT; continued west to the US border crossing at Port Huron MI and finally to the Fairfield Inn in Pontiac MI near the meet.

VW-engined vintage airplane in "Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines"
Rome
In this adventure-comedy movie from 1965 about an international race to be the first to fly over the English Channel, the French entry was powered by a VW engine. I remember clearly seeing the stamped metal valve covers and the single-port intake manifold in the "in-flight" scenes, but now I found some still publicity shots. This cab-underslung plane design was a replica of the French plane "Demoiselle" originally built and flown by Alberto Santos-Dumont. in the movie the pilot is named Pierre Dubois, played by Parisian actor Jean-Pierre Caselle.

The engine appears to be a 1300 cc or larger single-port as seen by the inward/downward curve of the intake manifold above the head. Possibly a Type 3 1500 cc single carb engine, due to the carburetor lying flat instead of a Type 1 1200 engine with its upright carb?

IMDB "Trivia" writes that the plane could not leave the ground with the original pilot, so the pilot Joan Hughes was hired to fly.

Took my Beetle for a local drive in Rockland County in late August. The village of Piermont is on the western side of the Hudson River, just south of the Tappan Zee (now the Governor Mario M. Cuomo) Bridge and the town of Nyack. The "river" shot is on the mile-long former railroad pier that goes about 1/3 into the River.

The tracks were removed in the late 20th century, the abandoned station restored, and the path is now a bike path.
