That is horrible news. :( Will keep a look out for it.

Unless the traffic department moved it? If it was in a dangerous spot they would do that.

I contacted Ndabeni Traffic Impound. They checked their records and no VW beetles have been towed by their services.

Any ideas?

The fact that it was out of fuel means it was not driven away :shock:
Maybe check a few back yards around there if possable.
It it was towed away then things look bleek! :(

Have you guys done a door to door inquiry, to see who saw what.

That will tell you where to look.

For a few bucks, some one will remember something,

Just remember, "Some one is always looking", Old cop saying.

Do some effort, and you will find it.
