    To most the Samba is the bus to own. This is especially true of our new correspondent Rikki James. Rikki has owned various years of this model and is currently restoring one from 1954 . Rikki has a vast collection of pictures of these buses and bigbulli.com is delighted to share his fetish with you by dedicating this page to examples found here in the UK. OK so far? Great, now what we at bigbulli.com would like you to do is to send details about any of the Sambas on this page. We will probably find that some of these vehicles have changed owners and colours several times since Rikki took these picture's, and we hope this page will become very interactive, with you updating the small amount of information on each bus. So if you want to want to contact Rikki's to update details or just talk samba, click

    BURNING BENICIA BUS BURNING BENICIA BUS

    BURNING BENICIA BUS I know you all heard it before...Carry a fire extinguisher! As I was driving home from work today I noticed a fellow bus owner I sometimes see, who lives a few towns away. Except this time she was "standing" in back of her bus. I turned mine around to see what was going on. As I made it over to her she started off again... Thinking all may not be well, I followed here for about 50 ft and then...SMOKE and FLAMES shot out the rear! After lots of manic BEEPING the horn and FLASHING the lights she pulled over. No time to say hi. She popped out w/tool in hand and flung open the lid. At the same time I grabbed the extinguisher from behind my front seat... shot that white spray in there and the flames were out....whoops...OK...now there OUT. Well now we both have another weird bus karma kind of story to tell our friends After a call to our mechanic (we found out we both go to the same guy) we found out that the little gas inlet thing to the carb sometimes just pops out! And then you have GAS shooting all over the place. SO make sure that gets in there good! Some type of epoxy should do the trick but I'm adding some bailing wire too just in case. The engine and compartment I'm sure will be fine, the flames only lasted for about 30 seconds. P.S. She and I both had charged fire extinguishers ready to go. Just replace these things every six months...I don't trust 'em: I carry two of them...but that's another story. -David

    07/14/06 bill I also had the same thing happen just recently (6-06) and had the good fortune to have a fire extinguisher on hand. Saved the day. burned wires and some bubbles paint but everything is fixed now. I even put an extinguisher in my'73 Superbeetle.

    Ray Bradshaw with the ShagMobile, his daily-driver 1959 Mango standard.
    It's sportin' several protective layers of Rustoleum paint, to keep the original paint fresh underneath. You can also see where the driver's side panel was wiped out years ago by a hit-and-run driver. Some expanding foam, a little bondo, and it's as good as new!

    BUS WASH BUS WASH
    david benardo

    Anyone know of a good carwash place in the OCTO show area? Someplace where they wash cars by hand and clean the inside and all 42 window panes? (this takes me a few hours for my bus) and one that's open Late on Friday night? I have a great place up here but have no idea where anything is in LA. Thanks -David
