Great pleasure meeting Richie from RichiesGarage at Hershey!
Stock Steve
I've had very satisfying Samba transactions with Richie from Riche's Garage in New Jersey over the years, but this was my first time meeting him in person! A real pleasure! Richie is a very nice guy and very knowledgeable. This photo was taken last week at the big AACA meet at Hershey, PA (October 9-12, 2019), at Richie's flea market space. That's Samba member "moogie32" in the nice posed photo with Richie. Thanks again for everything, Richie, and looking forward to doing more business with you again in the future!

Nitty-gritty Creeky Buggin' once again, early July 2019...

Nitty-gritty Creeky Buggin' once again, early July 2019...
Stock Steve
The '03 LeSabre that my daughter drives had to go into the shop unexpectedly--thankfully Sarah knows how to drive manual, so she was able to jump into my Subaru, to get to all her jobs. That means that Creeky Bug once again becomes *my* go-to! I was out and about to New Haven and back with it yesterday (7/5/2019), and then a gas-up stop at the Branford (CT) Leetes Island Road Mobil station by the highway. Out and about getting some stuff done today as well. Running good! Happy Saturday...

Fiitted "Herbie" wheels & tires to Doug the '60 Bug this past weekend

Fiitted "Herbie" wheels & tires to Doug the '60 Bug this past weekend
Stock Steve
I bought some of those China-repro 15x5.5 smoothies from one of the "hot" California parts houses, that came finished in a nice gloss white, and with hub cap clips already in place. I had my local garage mount & balance the set of 195/60R15 BFGs that I had been running on my other car, and finally put them all on Doug the '60 Bug this past Saturday, 6/22/2019. The clips were NOT happy accepting hub caps, and even though I spent some time tweaking all of the clips, I still lost a hub cap driving to a cruise night on Sunday 6/23 in Derby, CT (where I had a nice photo-op with a '66 Bus from New Haven). I kinda like the "Herbie" look that the fat wheels & RWL tires give the car.

Rainy season returns to Southern Connecticut... Coincidentally with my need to commute in the Creeky Bug this week with my Subaru being in the shop. Couple pictures from yesterday evening's (Monday, June 10th) drive home (I-95 northbound approaching the Q-Bridge in New Have, and a Staples stop in Branford), and this morning's (Tuesday, June 11th) drive in to work gas-up stop in West Haven, CT (southbound I-95 service plaza)... Bug's running good! Rain-X is working great! Ha ha!

Creeky Bug in New Haven, near old Armstrong Rubber building, 6/9/2019

Drove in to New Haven to mail some stuff at the main post office that’s located right near the big New Haven (CT) IKEA store (IKEA’s campus incorporates the historic old Armstrong Rubber building, that is considered an architectural treasure of New Haven—although it does not appear that IKEA is actually doing anything with it—other than hanging big “sale” banners on it that are visible from the highway--even though they’ve had to have been there now at least 10 or 15 years).

Still haven't done a ton of shakedown driving with this current wheels & tires setup, but brought a bunch of sockets and a breaker bar with me just in case. Of course the bolts holding the adapters to the car, and the bolts holding the wheels to the adapters are different size, LOL!... Photo is at the Branford, CT I-95 southbound side service plaza, gas-up stop on the way to work this morning... Happy Wednesday...

Creeky hitting the North Haven, CT Memorial Day cruise night, 5/27/2019

Beautiful evening to get out to North Haven, CT, on the early evening of Memorial Day, May 25th, 2019. A great group of local car enthusiasts, "The DooWop Cruisers" car club of North Haven runs these cruise nights on Monday nights in the summer, at the North Haven shopping plaza on Washington Avenue in town. I had a chance on Memorial Day to get over there with the Bug and had a great time. The guy with the red shirt posing with me is a fellow old car nut, John from Branford, and John's wife Cheryl took the picture (thanks again Cheryl!). Cheryl is also a Bug driver, and owns a beautiful blue '66 Bug--I will follow up with another picture...

The first attempted fitment of the red China-repro 16" Pre-A wheels and knobbies was Friday, May 10th, 2019; tried them on the Creeky '69 Bug first, since theywent well with his gnarly character. Used 4-to-5 bolt adapters at all four corners, and 3/8" spacers at the front, to clear the disk brake calipers (the car has Karmann Ghia disk brakes in front fitted). These pictures are from that first-bolt-on, with the car outdoors in the driveway.

Beautiful weather around here on Saturday, May 18th, 2019, so had to put the top down on the Creeky Bug to take it over to the other side of Branford, CT, to meet up with my old buddy Bill, who runs some great veterans-oriented car shows in our area, and is very committed to veterans causes in general. I had some goodie bag items to donate for a couple of his shows (some imprinted items for my hobby project Shoreline Antique Auto Connection), and so we met up at a local restaurant where a car & bike show were going on. Bill was very gracious to pose for a photo with the Bug. Thanks for all you do, Bill!

Wanted something a little out of the ordinary for these wheels... From the applicable page on the Coker web site: "...This is a classic Deka 525-16 truck tire. 5.25-16 size was used in the late forties and fifties and largely OE to imported automobile models..."

I knew I eventually wanted these tires, and just had to wait for finances to work out (they are not cheap). These are the Excelsior Stahl Sport Radial from Coker, in size 500R16. I sold the used bias play wide whitewalls that I had on my silver China-repro 16" Pre-A wheels originally. These drive and look very nice on my '60 Bug.

Didn't go thru the exhaustive stripping, installing clips, and then powdercoating process again this time, like I did with my other set, which are silver. These I bought and then sent straight to the powdercoaters (Shoreline Coatings LLC, in North Branford, my go--to guys) for some basic gloss red. Going to have some fun with tires and center caps options, and may eventually install some hub cap clips, but not for now...

Creeky in the snow, Saturday, March 2, 2019
Stock Steve
I have enjoyed having the Creeky Bug outside in the driveway, ready for me to drive at a moment's notice, thru this winter of 2018-2019, and for the most part it has been possible (either on very dry roads or after some good rains to wash salt away). Come March, now, however, we have been getting some substantial snow in Southern Connecticut. Hopefully we start the swing into Spring very soon now. Clocks springing forward this coming weekend will also be a nice psychological boost, with more usable sunlight in the afternoon...

Creeky Bug by the James Farm Road Wings, January 2019
Stock Steve
Took advantage of freshly rain-washed roads (to remove recent salt) and relative mild temps on Wednesday, January 9, 2019, to commute to work in the Creeky '69 Bug. Went out at lunchtime for a quick photo-op by the iconic wings that are part of the James Farm Road bridge over the Merritt Parkway, in Stratford, CT.

Creeky '69 Bug, still rolling, October 2018...
Stock Steve
Here are a couple of recent pictures of the Creeky '69 Bug. Dealt with a few brake problems this summer, but otherwise, still running well. Currently running some 15x6 "MiM" (Italian) alloy wheels (4x130 bolt pattern, no adapters; I bought 'em used from a Samba seller), refinished gloss black, and 195/60R15 radials...

Unusual 15" diameter, 6" wide, 4x130 alloys that I purchased recently from a Samba seller--manufactured, it appears, by "MiM" in Italy... Just picked them up yesterday from my favorite powdercoaters (Shoreline Coatings LLC in North Branford, CT: http://shorelinepowdercoating.com/), stripped and refinished in a beautiful gloss black... Now time to start thinking about tires...

Trying out WWs and Deano rings on the '70...

I had assembled a set of red 4.5" wheels and 6.00x15 Royalton wide whites for my ratty '69 Bug, and to try out some white powdercoated Deano rings (https://www.deanosvw.com/). This time bought another set of Deano rings, and had them powdercoated medium brown, to try out the setup on my tan '70 Bug. Something different anyway!

Unusual Italian-mfg 4x130 alloys
Stock Steve
These are some fairly unusual 15" diameter, 6" wide, 4x130 alloys that I purchased recently from a Samba seller. I was pretty sure I had never seen them before, and the seller told me that, as far as he knew, they were only sold for one year, by one of the big California aftermarket VW parts houses, which is when he bought them, approximately 12 years ago. I need to study and document the markings on the back more thoroughly, but from what I recall seeing, they were made in Italy. Might have to start up a new thread for these in the custom wheels & tires section of the forums... (NOTE: This particular picture was shared to me by the seller)
