Hi Matt,

I'm sorry, but if we are going to talk, I'd rather do it through the forum. Any information you would give me about the Burro molds I would put here anyway, as I think the public database here is valuable and worthy, and I appreciate the group's openness in sharing information.

If there is something that you would like to say via PM, then go ahead and send it in text. That would be preferable to a telephone exchange.

Thank you,

Raya

I have had a number of private conversations with Matt, and Matt stopped by my house on his recent research trip across the country. Matt has done a significant amount of original research that will add greatly to our knowledge of the history and inter-relationships of the manufacturers of our shared hobby of fiberglass trailers. His trips have not been without expense, and he deserves to make whatever he can from his endeavors. While many of us have provided what clues we can to him, he has and will continue to fill in many blanks that we have only conjectured about.

As for the original Sac City Burro molds, I tracked them down three or four years ago and could have been much more specific in my posts about their location; however, you must remember that not everyone wants their information broadcast online. I was respecting the privacy of the party who has the molds as I had never asked whether or not I could provide information about him publicly. Privately, I provided his information to Matt along with some other info on the Love Bug production, and he was able to find out many fascinating things about both Burro and Love Bug by taking those tips and doing extensive local research and interviews.

Matt may have made other arrangements with the current owner of the Burro molds; I don't know, but I think it appropriate to let Matt complete his project before anyone makes demands of him for information. I don't know exactly how Matt's project is going to shake out, and I know that there's still a lot of information that he wants to get before he goes into the editing room, but I know that what he's doing is going to be a quality project with very interesting information and I am excited, and can hardly wait to see the culmination of his research.

So... let's all give him a little room to work, and as much help as we can provide to help him do what he's doing. I can promise you that there's nothing out there in the depth or quality of research that's close to the scope of what Matt has undertaken.

In the mean time, if there's other valuable information we can continue to post in this thread about Burro trailers, let's carry on.

Any updates on the vanished burro molds lost in maybe Mexico? This mystery reminds me of that Leonard Nimoy show "in search of" I always liked. Anyway, has time rewarded us yet in solving this mystery yet?

Matt, H is in post production work on his fiberglass-travel-trailer-documentary. The last rumor I heard is that the answer will be in the film...

Sometimes these projects take years to complete.

Ken that takes me back. I remember "I.S.O... the Loch Ness Monster" like it was yesterday. did Peter Graves narrate any of those, or do i have my wires crossed?

If you liked Nimoy in "In Search Of" I am sure you'll appreciate this:

Roger H,

Has the status of the privacy of the party who has the mysterious Burro molds changed in these 4 years in that you can now tell us what country they are in?

The guys name that might still have molds for the Burro is Jerry Woodke or Brian Woodke in Schaller Iowa.

Makes sense that the Sac City molds would be in Iowa. Wonder if the Iowa story became confounded with the later Escondido fiasco? The SoCal concern in much better position to head for the border. I've also heard that the later Burro hulls were laid up in Mexico which, if true, would mean the tooling didn't need to go south.

So, anyone have any insight as to whether or not this 'documentary' will ever come to light? Matt seems to have disappeared along with the end product?
