    I know it's not necessarily a HAMB friendly car but the 55 VW belongs to John Barnes who is a fellow Hot Rodder and he asked me to please make a post about it. The car was stolen last weekend in Orange CA near Batavia and Collins street. It has original black paint and red interior and new white wall tires. The vin number is 10838915 and license plate number is 5LIS186. If you have any info please PM me or call John at (714) 264-0363 Thanks!

    BTT, I'm chasing one right now original owner been sitting for twenty + years...but 90 year old owner doesn't want to sell yet.
    I think he has a chance of finding it if it doesn't get dismantled
    good luck......
     
  3. That sucks John! I'm around there all day. I'll keep a look out for it. I know how much you cherish your cars...
     
  4. You guys should make a post on the samba, if you haven't already.

    That's a neat car, best of luck.

    Maybe it fell in love with a Lancia and eloped.

    Seriously, hope it turns up. I'd be heartbroken.
