EAA Needs A Few Good 'Bugs'
the most visible fixtures of EAA AirVenture has nothing to do with
airplanes. But ask anyone who's been to the annual Oshkosh event
and they'll know instantly what you're talking about when you
mention, "EAA's Volkswagens."
Since EAA's early days in Oshkosh, modified VW Beetles have
served as the favored mode of transportation for many staff
members, key volunteers and VIPs. EAA staff painstakingly maintains
more than 30 vehicles for their all-important roles during
convention. However, like anything mechanical, several of our
venerable "Bugs" are becoming likely candidates for the junkyard.
There are four of the vehicles that must be retired this year.
Those VWs have been patched up to the limit, and now they need to
be replaced. So, EAA is looking for a few good "Bugs."
They ask, "If you have an old VW you'd like to donate to EAA and
see it live on in service during the world's premier annual general
aviation event, we'd like to hear from you. Vehicles should be in
good running condition and not require any major repairs (Donations
may even be tax deductible)."
FMI: If you'd like to help, call Gary Doehling at 920/426-4830,
or drop him an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. VWs donated will
be modified (roof cut down, some body work) for EAA AirVenture
