Always wonder what happens when a nice project like this disappears.

I have recently moved, and will have to dig around a little to find the tapes. I will try to have them converted to a youtube friendly format so that they can be enjoyed by all.

Catweazle, unfortunately there are not to many shots of Werner or his co-driver in these videos. ...And being old 8mm, there is unfortunatly no audio either. Most of it is scenery shot through the bus window while driving. Have you learned anything from your family about Werners life in Canada, and his many travels in his VWs?

...I'll see if I can dig up those movie reels...

Stories like this about Werner are the reason these cars are still around. Absolutely AMAZING.

You even got the camera angle and tilt nearly perfect. You must have had a laptop with you or that picture printed out.

actualy I photoshop'd it from the picture that I posted below it. I just tweaked it enough to somewhat match. I am not good enough with photoshop to replicate the glare from the sun though.

Hi- I am now the owner of the Green Flash. I live in New Jersey and would be happy to send any photos of the bus. I know you really want pictures of your relative but I think this bus was a piece of him. Let me know

These are screenshots of some old 8mm tape that was uncovered last spring. It looks like Werner took it on quite the cross country trek.

It looks like most of it was filmed in 1961.
I would like to eventually transfer it to a digital format and put it on youtube, but haven't had the time yet.
enjoy...

Hello Ueberwagen,

Werner Damrath was the son of the 2nd husband of my fathers elder sister. I was surprized to find some personal pictures. From where do you get this material / pictures? Do you have still the old 8mm tape? This is definetely the last possibility to get some pictures of my uncle, who died very surprising in 2003. It would be nice if you can send me the tape so that I can make a copy of it. For short moments my uncle will come alive,
but only with your help. Please be so kind and help me and my brother and sisters. Thanks in advance. Bye, Stefan Montini, Parkstra▀e 14, 41564 Kaarst, Germany!

Those are some nice pics ^^^^

I am pretty sure the last photo shows a swamp creature in the center background....or it's 10 Foot Doug taking a dip.

The og paint Horowitz Deli Delivery truck is kicking it next to El Chewbacca. That bus would look BAD ASS with it's booty laid out on the ground. And most folks aren't aware of this buses history??? And why is it that it stayed so dry, ZERO RUST, and remained in the condition it's currently in!!! When folks see it they automatically assume it came from Arizona or New Mexico. We, as in Jimenetz, Connorwitz & Rothchild LLC, always reply with.......WRONG DESERT!!! This bus was used at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, in Tel Aviv, Israel. Then head Curator of the museum, Aronold Moses Schoenberg, retired in Little Utrecht, the Jewish quarter of P-Town, California (where everyone is a Dutch Jew). This truck is now in commission, though with the Pomona Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art! REALLY!

Gibbs - Hope you and your followers of Abraham have a nice First Seder. I made Gefilte fish for sundown!!!
