      Another reason I keep it updated to put it back on top again.... I wish it would, but most stickies help out a lot of people and this one would only help out one person. Thanks for the support!!

      Thanks, I have been using searchtempest.com, but I'll try the crazelist.org and see if I like it better.

      Anyways I fly out tommorrow heading to CA. I have no leads nor any more info on the bug. I was hoping to have something to work with. I seen a orange beetle the other day and I got a pretty good flash back of the car.... Hopefully I will find the car. On the flip side if I ever find the car (crushed, etc). My mother bought my brother a Baja Beetle as a grad present. The bug has been sitting on my land forever like a sad story. I'm thinking about buying the car from him and re doing it. It will have a little twist being a baja beetle, but I'll paint it Orange like hers was...IDK just a though.....

      I'm still searching.. I posted a WANTED ad on Criagslist in the Watsonville area. I know it could be a good thing or bad thing. If someone has it and is a D-bag they could try and get a arm and a leg for it. I figure if it gets me to the car, it's worth it. Even if I can't buy it due to some over pricing, I would rather know where the car is at then to keep wondering all the time. I'm trying to save a little bit of money to hire I private investigator, but they aren't cheap. Wish me luck!! NOW CHECK THEM VIN's!!

      I read this today for the first time and I think my heart just sank into my chest. Words can't describe how thankful I am to have a VW member like you. I like how you did the "Things to look for" I don't know if I said this but the car didn't have bumpers on it (Just had the two little push guard/brackets for the bumpers. I'm pretty sure it had the front vents below the hood. It also had these type of rims on it when my brother sold it:

      Also the floor pan behind the driver seat was rusted pretty good and on the rear seat kick panel (right behind the drivers seat) was a push button to start the car. My brother rigged it up one day after the ignition switch died.

      I'll keep an eye out here in the bay area.

      I would appreciate other folks doing the same for me! I'm looking for my 73 Super Beetle as well, though mine was last known to be in NY.

      Oh, so I got some help today. I posted a craigslist ad in the Watsonville area. Turns out a guy (Rarafel) a couple houses down the street calls me where the car was last seen. He remembers the car. Well anyways Rarafel said the guy that had the beetle use to have a weird rare car, called a Reliant Super Robin (Crazy little 3 wheeled car) and he has been trying to sell it for the longest time. Turns out he had it for sale on a website. If you look you can see a beetle in the background. Rarafel says it use to have the TAZ sticker on the back window, so what are the odds. If it is the car they have done some stuff to it. The car is now a red orange not the light orange, has bumpers on it and stock bug wheels again. Rarafel has also tracked the guys name down William Wallace that use to be a Math teacher at Cabrillo College and moved to Oregon. I'm searching now to hopfully get some info from him. I hope this is my moms, it could be just another beetle around the same spot and I could be chasing a lost cause. Either way it's worth the risk. Man I can't thank you people enough for all your help so far!!

      I cant find a William L Wallace in watsonville.. but his email was listed on his math website - however the info is from 2005. The college is in Aptos, CA and I located one william L wallace there - chances are its him .

      It seems pretty far fetched that it would be changed between two different oranges, but here's to hoping. Maybe the lighting in the picture is off and it looks darker than it is, or better yet, maybe that orange one is a parts car for yours that is still in running condition!

      I emailed that address, but it's dead. They normally kill stuff like that after being transfered. I'm going to wait until tommorow and call the college and see if they can help. You never know what they will give up until you call. Hopfully Rarafel's neighbor will come up with William's cell phone number.

      that picture with the reliant looks like the lighting is messing with the color of the beetle like someone else said. Hope you find out soon
