Hi and apologies to all fellow Bugg'rs who have been trying to get hold of me via e mail or phone, as only a few of you knew that we had some sadness over Christmas due to the death of MY oldest son Richard who had only been living with us for the past year or so. His passing has come as quite a shock to all of us being it was so sudden,and it's left us with quite a lot to sort out however I'm slowly getting over it with great help from the rest of my family. Please allow me time to get back on track as I'm only just starting to deal with the spares side, once again I would like to take this opportunity to thank all who have sent their condolences but I have had to be careful as Richard also has a son and daughter and we did not want anything put up on facebook before they knew of their father passing away.
P.S If you reply please keep your messages on here NOT and on facebook. Thank You from Dave, Dawn,Azzy,Becky,Tommy
To Dave and Dawn and family I had heard about the sad loss of your son a couple of days ago, and was planning to contact you. It's a terrible thing to lose a child - and we wish you the strength to get through this time. It's good to hear that your family are pulling together and supporting one another. I'm glad you've been brave enough to tell people directly in your post, as I know that people expect you to be there sorting out their spares 24/7, and I hope that they will now understand that you need time to deal with your grief, and with all the arrangements that have to be made, which are worse than ever if somebody passes suddenly. With love and best wishes from me & Patrick. xx
To anybody who is needing spares QUICKLY at the moment....... Please get in touch with me, or Ron, or any other member of the Club whose contact details you will find in the magazine, and we will try to point you in the right direction of the spares that you need from other sources. I have a few boxes of stuff that I am selling on behalf of Sue Webb, whose late husband was a Bug enthusiast, and was building up a stock of spares to restore Bugs in his retirement, which sadly he did not live to enjoy. I'm putting them on Ebay, so as to get a fair price for them. If you contact me and I have anything here that you need, then I will get it put on Ebay as soon as I can..... if that is any help to you.

burlmeister: m looking for a replacement petrol tank. Does anyone produce them? Secondly, I need to replace the tyres. There is a sign in the car and in the handbook, only cross ply tyres to be fitted. No idea why this should be. Are cross ply tyres still available?

ady: For the petrol tank try looking up triggergas on ebay, he might be able to make you one. You can fit radial tyres, most people do. There is plenty of choice of tyre for it as they are the same size as a Mini. You can still get crossplys if you want
