I don't think anyone has posted this yet. From the new Wonder Woman movie which has not come out yet that I will absolutely see.

The segment of the "Sunday Morning" show from last week was about the CBS "eye" logo and its retiring unofficial historian. I spotted this on his table, took a snapshot off the TV, and did my best to correct the perspective.

Appears to be a trade magazine featuring a VW Bus, presumably a mobile TV/radio station. I bet there are photos of it in the gallery somewhere.

EDIT: Sure 'nuff, here it is in the Classifieds! A photo of a mobileTV repair vehicle. Even came with the optional accessory dog!

The pamphlet was an ad for NRI, a trade school popular in the '50s and '60s as the consumer electronics market skyrocketed.

Gotta love the"atomic" logo at upper right! Oh, 1958 was a good year!

My son selected a kid friendly movie tonight...."Dennis the Menace (1993)" popped up on the Netflix que and we watched. There is a part where a photographer came to Mr. Wilson's house....a blue beetle is in the background. It's hard to tell, maybe a mid 60's model with maybe some over-rider bumpers.

just caught the second half of this film - the two headed spy, 1958 starring jack hawkins and gia scala. jack drives a rather ropey looking white kubel into the woods. in other scenes there are three other kubels in better knick plus two schwimmers. one with strange fenders...available on youtube

Thought this was too cool not to include in this forum. Looks like Grand Theft Auto?

Some discussions here:
https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=376311


I won't rehash the discussion, but the links to the "Volkswagen" are improperly stated... the term "volkswagen" was in common use, and his claim for the "capital V" car implies links that did not exist.

Nonetheless, VW saw fit to pay some restitution to his family in the late '50s/early '60s (I'm looking for the specifics). And he was treated like shit for many many years. Worthy to read and learn.

...but take it with a grain of salt... as you should "Small Wonder," too.

The McLaren on the building refers to McLaren Racing.

I would want that 412 only if I delivered mail to mailboxes at the curb in the US.


Same movie. Rush, 2013. Ron Howard's movie about the conflict between Formula 1 drivers Nicki Lauda and James Hunt in the mid 70's.

Fascinating, thanks for posting that, I've often wondered what those roads were like before they became "super highways". I prefer 99 over I-5 whenever possible, the run down old gas stations, restaurants and motels are much more interesting, as well as the roadside diversions and the Mexican truck stops, I don't mind a couple hours extra to make the drive more interesting and leisurely.

http://www.gbcnet.com/ushighways/US99/US99f_contents.html

Since it ends at Pyramid Lake now, it's easy to arrange for its closure south of there, making it popular for filming.

99 continues now but only roughly for Bakersfield northward, the southern sections being replaced/bypassed by Interstate 5.

Older still is the original "Ridge Route" that was instrumental in avoiding the "two California" situation by uniting commerce and vacationing, but that'a another story...

1973 Super Beetle in TV show "Monk" (2005). Season 3, episode 13. An environmental activist drove the SB to a rural site to meet a contractor. The contractor kills the activist, puts him inside the car, and drives the car into his dump truck.

The contractor drives onto a highway and raises the dump bed so that the SB rolls out. Police department consulting private detective Adrian Monk (Tony Shalhoub) is riding in a car on the highway and comes to a traffic jam caused by the SB.

Note that the front fenders have the triangular cutouts for the '74 style absorber bumper inserts. Crude patch on passenger side pan. No engine in the wreck scenes; there is a plate covering that space. Bald tires. IMDB lists the "Highway" as the decommissioned Templin Highway (aka Golden State Hwy) which is just west of I-5 north of Castaic, California that ends at Pyramid Lake.
