My Father-in-law, Creighton Mueller, was a pretty incredible man. This car being featured is in storage in Lakewood, WA. He was a leader who was innovative and involved in his community. He passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by his family June of 2021. I will treasure this interview for as long as I can. Thank you so much for this precious interview. 💗

Elizabeth, Andy, I am so very sorry to learn of Creightons passing. He was my unknown hero for more than half century and I was so glad when I finally located him in Tacoma, eventually getting the opportunity to meet him and write and promote the story of his amazing little VW sedan.
