Instagram - for those of you who don't know - is an app for your phone that allows you to add several effects to the photos making you seem like either a really bad photographer or a really good photographer (depending on your perspective). Then you can share them (to a feed, to Facebook, etc)

I love the photos.

And several VW photos are shared daily. Here's an example of some awesome ones shared recently:

Bring "the Fizzle" back home - Stolen Bus in Southern California

Hey readers. A quick heads up that the Fizzle was stolen on 9-12-12. There's a Facebook page ( photos that show the distinguishing elements of this bus. Keep an eye out. Here are some details and images from the Facebook page:

Hi everybody, I just wanted to put the word out there that our bus was stolen 9/12/12 in the Miracle Mile area of Los Angeles. It's a yellow and white 11 window Kombi with black vintage plates FZL 291. It has safari windows in the front. There are 2 camper windows on each side and on the curb side there's a hubcap missing and one munched a little. The back bumper has no overriders. There are no he adliner or side panels on the interior. If anybody has any kind of information that would be helpful in getting it back it would be greatly appreciated. I'm offering a $500 reward to anybody with information that leads to it's return. I'm really trying to spread the word about my bus, if I don't get him back I don't know what I'm going to do. Thanks so much! Dan 

If you see it, call 323-810-1651.

Fall Finnon Fest 2012 - A Halloween campout

Many of you may have seen the photos we have posted about campouts at Finnon in the past. A more perfect spot for VW campers to congregate is hard to find. It is close enough all VWs can make it but far enough that most other people do not make it. It has a cafe in walking distance and it is inexpensive camping. So this campout is going to be Halloween themed. There may be a bit of OctoberFest thrown in just to add some reason to drink strong beer during the campout. So, if you are in NorCal in late October, you should come. All the details are on VW Camper Family.

July 24, 1883 (no, 1983) Northwest Bug-In Program

Friday, September 7, 2012


Most of you who follow this blog know who Monty is. His ass polished Big Blue's driver's seat for almost 40 years. But did you know we never met him? We bought Big Blue over the phone from him and mailed the forms to complete the transaction. If fact, we barely talked to him once on speaker phone as his friend Jack was showing us the bus. So we never knew what he looked like. But Monty stays in touch, commenting on posts here and there and checking in and sending us photos of VW buses he sees. 

And, finally, we have a face to put the worn out paint from the key chain to. Dear readers of Big Blue's Online Carburetor, the man in the picture below is none other than Big Blue's original space captain!

The VW in the picture isn't his. He sent this for us to share. But we are holding out hope that someday we may get an photos sent to us of him back at the wheel of a VW bus setting out to leave oil stains around California once again!
