Does anyone know someone from the VWoodies2 and the Volkswagen Woodies Yahoo Groups?

I have tried now for the last couple of months to join, but have not had any success.

I have not had any luck with the group owner responding to emails.

I don't know if someone on the Woodies Yahoo Group helped or the "owner" finally got my emails, but I received access to the two Yahoo Groups this past weekend.

Lots of good information and the photos that I have been looking for showing various parts of the finished VW Woodies so I can see assembly details.

Nice to see so much interest in VW Woodies! I still drive our prototype all the time. I try to get it out at least once a month, and more if possible.

It's been holding up GREAT, but it has been in a garage for the past 25+ years now. They're great, and I really love mine (but I have been driving it for over 35 years now!)

I need to take it up to the Santa Cruz Woodies On The Wharf, if it's still going...I was invited about 19 or 20 years ago, but something got in the way, and I still have yet to get to that event...My lady is pushing to put the Woody in the Small Car concours in Pacific Grove this August, so we'll see...

Send us pics, if you have one built from our plans! (or inspired by, as I see some heavily modified VW Woodies built from parts of the plans...We were going to do a Town & Country-inspired roadster at one point, but that project got diverted by something else (as many of them do!)

Happy building and driving to everyone!

Mike Stevenson

Mike, I bought a basket case that was built from your plans before I designed and built my car. I used your plans as a jumping off point and a good source of information, but there really was nothing that I built that was directly from the plans.

The other woodie I have was built many many years ago by John Slusar from Milwaukee.

And by the way, the 2 yahoo groups (Vwoodies and Vwoodies2)have recently been brought back to life since the group owner has rise from the dead LOL. The Stevenson cars are the primary cars on those pages.
