      Still need someone to drive around the area looking for it? I'm in North San Diego County but love a good road trip. Especially with a purpose.

      Still no luck, but in the mean time I bought my dad a 1961 Impala. When I was young that's the only car he use to talk about for that was the year he was born (Not his favorite car, but always wanted one). So if I can't find the Beetle for my mother, I have a backup plan. I bought the Impala as it needs work, so we can work on it over time and the memories will be made and the car is registered in my name, so there's no way my brother can sell it again!!

      Don't give up! This is so interesting and cool. I found my dads first car.. a 67 hard top... But the owners won't sell. Made it into a little 12 sec drag car

      Well I haven't heard from anyone in the Watsonville area, but I got some good news today. My work will be sending me to Edwards Airforce Base in CA for 2.5 months. Watsonville is only 5 hours away and I could drive up there friday after work and spend the whole weekend looking for it. I got about 8 - 9 weekends if I need them to find it... It would be nice if someone already spotted it, then all I got to do is hire a transport driver to meet me there and load it up.

      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

      LOL....It's all good


      Anyways, I fly to Edwards Airforce Base in CA Monday and I'm going to try to drive to Watsonville (About a 5.5 hr drive I think) and scout it out if I can. Wish me LUCK!!!!

      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'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
