      I saw an orange SB going down Del Mar in the opposite direction in San Diego. I don't know if it's any help. I busted a U, but I lost it.

      No other modifications when I had it. This is the VIN I pulled from an old insurance card I FINALLY found:

      Sold in summer of 1994 in North Georgia. Can't find the bill of sale
      Would love to see it again and have a shot at getting it back depending on condition.

      Dang.... Well the search continues, but I'm really thinking about buying another rep for now, but I will always want hers if I can. Figure I could spend my whole life looking for it (Which is fine), but I could buy one that reminds me of it and enjoy it for the rest of my life. Even if I do find her's, you can never have too many VW in the drive right!! I mean I already have 3

      This is probably the best solution. Like you said, it could literally take your entire life to find that beetle. Find one (maybe a close vin# so you can call it a bro or sis.) that looks and feels the part and go for it. And always keep that eye peeled.

      Yea, I'm looking for a bug now. I'm pretty picky, so it's going to take some time.

      If I could only find a nice slammed (Bags would be nice) orange bug around here. LOL. I know some people don't like them slammed, but I think it looks good if done right. I don't care really about the year for there's not much different in them. Figure any orange bug will do the job. Anyone off hand know what a paint job would run on the bugs, I'm talking about a color change. I found a lot of bugs I like, but they aren't orange.. No one seems to like orange for some reason...

      I know this is a long shot, maybe more of a possibility for the guy in Atlanta looking for his, but there is a bright orange beetle at a shop in Blairsville, Ga, which is close to the border with nc, I don't know anything about it, I saw it today as we were passing through. I can find the information for the shop if one of you wants it.

      The shop was called Arne's. The number is (706) 745-4633. I don't know much about these beetles, so I couldn't tell you what year it is. But, I think it is someone's project or parts car.

      Yea, it's hard to even find a Orange beetle I like. I'm probably going to find a nice one and color change it. Going suck to tear down a perfectly good bug to do a color change, but it's got to be done. My moms was a 73, but that's not the year I really care for and when I was younger I couldn't tell you the different in any Type I bug...LOL. The 73 super beetle interior doesn't nothing for me (memory), just the Orange color and or course the AC motor...LOL. I would really would like a ragtop. Found plenty of them, but there not local or asking too much for my wallet. Thanks for looking out, wish I could return the favor some day if I can...

      If you got time, I would appreciate it... Thanks for looking out!!

      Also yesturday, someone out of the blue called me about my moms beetle. There was a Orange Beetle in SF Bay area. Went to the ad and it looked like I may have found her. After some talking the guy finally gave me the VIN......... DANG!! NOT IT!! Anyways, just give me more motivation to keep searching and thankful for everyone out there looking out for me...Thanks GUYS!! So for the past few days, bugs have been on my mind like crazy!!LOL!! I almost bought a 1969 bugs, running and driving for $700, but I turned it down. It needed work and I'm only looking to restore only one bug in my life....

      Here is one to call on. In Denver, so a long shot.
