Daug Gone: Where Did SA Get VW Bug?

Daug Gone: Can anyone help me out here? I saw a brand new Volkswagon Bug the other day all painted up with Salvation Army logos. Where did that come from...a donor, KROC money, extra money? Anyone?

DFO: That's a VW bug that was given to Major John Chamness by a car dealership that supported the Salvation Army efforts in the Seattle area, I believe. When I interviewed Major Chamness for a Huckleberries Gone Wireless feature earlier this spring, he said he wouldn't mind if a local Humvee dealer saw fit to do likewise. (For the anal retentive among you blurkers, Major Chamness was joking at the time. I think.)
