      Well I had a private investigator get me where I am today and the car was last registered to the previous owners. The person who has it now I guess bought it as a parts car or something for they haven't registered it after buying it. Any help would be awesome and thanks.....

      I'm not sure where Morgan Hills and Santa Cruz (I live in TX), but guessing it's close. Thanks for the help

      I hate to say it but check check junkyards in that area as well. If it wasn't registered and was used for parts (hopefully not) good chances are that is may be in a junkyard somewhere. Good luck in your search, I know we're all looking forward to the day you find it.

      I'm currently in Lancaster, CA right now for work, but Friday I'm taking the 5+ hour trip to Watsonville. I'm researching all the wrecking yards now and booking my hotel (I'm staying all weekend if I got to).

      Thanks everyone for your help so far. I'll update more Friday and I'll see what happens. It would so sweet if I roll up to Watsonville and find it sitting there in the guys driveway (last place seen)

      Wish me luck!!

      I know it was mentioned earlier, but try google earth and look around that address. This is a very cool story, and I hope it has a happy ending...I'm a big fan of happy endings

      I've been all over the area (Google Earth), but haven't seen anything. Finding a orange beetle would stand out a little and the last time it was seen was in a driveway, so it should be easier to find....

      This is crazy intense! I can't wait to see what you find this weekend! What are you going to do with it once you find it? Restore it and give it to your mom?

      If I find it, I'm restoring it head to toe. I will be driving it a lot, I can't stand the people with sweet rides and they only see the trailer/parking lot. My mom died, but the car will still live on. If I keep it in the garage I would be killing the memories I had of her. I think I even have a 911 motor for it to kick it up a little bit, my mom had a need for speed .

      I went over it again and again today, but nothing. I tried calling the PO, but they changed the number so I'm trying to track them down again and see if I can get more info (Color of house, under a tree, etc) if I can. I did call a local place (Freedom Rose House) and the guy is going to drive that way tomorrow and see what he can find. The guy was real nice and the funny thing is, he use to have a 73 Beetle as well. Man I love VW and the family blood that runs through it... Everyone has been helping out if they can. Thanks everyone!!!

      Hopefully this weekend will end a 3+ year hunt, but even if I do find it the next challenge begins. I hope the guy will sale it and doesn't try to rape me if I have to tell him what it means to me.

      Oh I do apologize, I must have missed that part. Sounds like a great plan and I hope it turns out for you.

      best of luck

      stop by the local PO and chat them up, maybe they can help

      or call the local news.

      the only thing it could hurt is the price you end up paying for it

      Thanks everyone for the support. Well I got in pretty late so I drove as close as I could to the address and stayed the night. Well it's 630AM and I'm out the door. Didn't sleep worth a crap and couldn't stop thinking about the car. Wondering what shape it will be in or of I'll even find it.

      Man this is crazy. I think I may have found it. No one answers the door. Unless there another car that looks like a bug. I'm 95% sure it's a beetle under the tarp, but if it's my moms IDK.....
