      Don't get your hopes up. But I am on Fort Irwin and I see one in Barstow, CA all the time. Its a good looking Orange color. Last time I saw it, it was in front of a motel and I think the time before also. I will stop and check it out if I see it

      Barstow... I still have guys from work up there and that's not too far from Lancaster when I go back up there in June. Only thing is, right now I don't think the car has been register in several years. If it is it, either the system isn't updated or he running illegal...LOL!!

      Thanks for looking out!!

      LOL... Thanks!! Well I search everyday I think (For real, even on weekends). You never know when the car will come up for sale on Craigslist or something. Just sucks for I have to search the entire USA (mainly focus on the West coast). I have Craigslist PRO on my iPhone and when anything within my search criteria pops up I get a email and I check it out!! Yea I can't wait until I write the last page on the book, but time will come and there's no telling how many pages there's going to be......

      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!!
