So there was this post on The Samba for 'late 60's Karmann Ghias' to use in the filming of an episode of 'Wheeler Dealers' down in the bay area. I guess they are restoring a Ghia on the show but they wanted to show some other Ghias. Way cool.

I figured what the heck, a drive down to the bay would be nice, besides there are many nice Ghias in the area so the probability was slim that they would actually want to use May.

We exchanged a couple of emails and the pictures I sent were being forwarded on to the director and I thought 'well you never know, stranger things have happened' and with a little bit of CGI we're in there.

And then this morning I get this:

Hi Matthew,

Unfortunately our filming schedule has changed and we’ve had to move location to Orange County CA. Obviously this is a long way from yourself so we won’t be able to go with your car. Unless you’re prepared to travel? Sincere apologies for the last minute change of plans. However thank you for your time and patience over the last couple of weeks and your interest in helping us film Wheeler Dealers.

Kind regards,

Of course they are going to SoCal! So I guess we'll just have to wait for the next one. HAHA!

You have a toy hauler. I just cannot imagine a change for May to go big time.
