Got it

Arlington Texas butt no contact info

It looks awfully like the Wild Westerner Sunset Classics sold years ago.
This lunar eclipse with a blue moon tonight along with my best budd Jim Bean has me off my game.
We have the serial number but owners unknown.

If you can contact the owner then hook me up.

Good eye and really appreciate helping with the hunt.

Back to the Moon

Guess I will be watching the moon all night then.

Yes if you don't mind send a message I'm trying to get the registry updated with current owner information as well as notifying owners of the free Certification Decals and the Birthday Bash.

Thanks
Cuz

I went to the DMV and asked if they would forward a letter I had written to the lost Wild Westerner current owner in Myrtle Beach. Naturally the answer was no, however I received a form to request the owners contact info that must be mailed along with $6 but the list of reasons why this information was needed did not include my reason for contacting the owner. I sent it anyway and we will see if it flies.

I have new information on the Wild Westerner sold and lost in Alabama. It was sold to someone in the Florence Alabama area.

Do we have anyone anywhere in the state of Alabama that would go by a DMV with this serial 2232 185 820 and just ask if it is still titled in that area or anywhere in Alabama ?

This will help us in determining an area to focus on.

Sullivan

Thank You

67ctbug

Still looking for someone in Alabama to go to a DMV and find out if SN 2232 204 959 is still titled in Alabama and possibly near Florence Alabama.

Also We need someone in North Carolina to go by a DMV and find out if 2232 207 647 is titled in the state near Wadesboro .

Volunteers are wanted and welcome.

Over the past few years we have had many reports of wild westerners in junk yards and I suspect many more are out there rusting away. I am going to begin posting the ones we know in hopes someone will check the local junk yards in that area for these buses. Remember some have been painted other colors so we need to look at the m code plates for verification.

Do we have anyone in Spokane Washington there was a WW sent to a junk yard around the Spokane area. I asked the samba member to give us a picture of the m code so we could log it. The samba member literally cut the m code plate off the wall and then sent a picture. Really never understood that but anyway we need a condition report and what would it take to buy it.

My suggestion is to call all junk yards within a county and ask if they have any air-cooled vw buses and if so go physically look you never know you may find some of the high dollar 21 windows busses.

Please document the county and the name and town of the junkyards and I will start a legend to show what counties and junkyards have been visited.

Here are two to start with:
Spokane Washington
Salt Lake City, Utah

Speak up if you know of others most if not all Wild Westerners were imported on West Coast therefore there are possibly many in junkyards.

The push is on to find em and get them ready for 2023.

Thanks to all involved

Sullivan

Volunteers needed in the following states.

NC 2232 207 647
Alabama 2232 185 820

We need one person in each of the above states to drop by any DMV and ask if these Vehicles are still titled in the respective states.
Active Title
Salvage title
Rebuilt title

They will not give you contact info on the owner however request the form to contact owner. In SC it is called Request for vehicle information.
If possible ask what county it may be titled or registered in therefore we can advertise in that area.

We have a report there is a wild Westerner in a junk yard somewhere around the Salt Lake City area. We do not have a serial number. Could someone please check all junkyards in that area carefully, and lets see if we can locate it. Please document all junk yards and or metal scrap yards you contact therefore others will not search the same locations

Get er dun

And
Thanks

I "spotted" one on facebook the other day.

It was a post in a VW group of a Bay with nearly the entire roof ripped off. Like it had been on a trailer that went under a too-low bridge.

In the comments someone posted a pic of his trailer with three buses on it, saying, "They shoulda used me" or similar.

The bus on the front of the trailer was a WW. I messaged the poster and he said he was hauling it for a customer. I asked him to pass on my contact info as well as a link to this thread, and he said he'd try.

So hopefully that info gets passed on and we can document another one!

Another one spotted!

This trailer load was spotted by a friend of a friend on Saturday 10 Feb 2018 near Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. Off to some bus restoration operation in California, apparently. No additional information.

I am guessing that these buses are being hauled out of the gold mine VW yard (Continental Specialities) just west of Alamogordo, which sells only whole vehicles. Looks like they have some good stuff to work with!

You know someone mentioned the Continental yard a few years back and I could not find any info on them. Please contact them and let them know about us and also try to find out where those were headed. We need to get them registered.

Great find. Very Happy

So far I have not heard from the one in Myrtle Beach, nor the one in Lexington Texas on facebook nor the one Dave spotted on a trailer. Confused

This trailer load was spotted by a friend of a friend on Saturday 10 Feb 2018 near Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. Off to some bus restoration operation in California, apparently. No additional information.

I am guessing that these buses are being hauled out of the gold mine VW yard (Continental Specialities) just west of Alamogordo, which sells only whole vehicles. Looks like they have some good stuff to work with!


I'm certain this is the same one I referenced in my post above. I don't remember the other two buses specifically from that FB post, but I'd have to imagine the odds are low of two different trailer loads of 3 Bay window buses showing up with a WW in the front!

if it ripped the roof off the first one, it would have got the second one too. If there were not two destroyed vws in the fb pic you saw, it was another ww. or the trailer stopped after just the ww was destroyed. or it was just bad composition. I forgot my point.
