NASHVILLE, Tenn. –  The owner of a 1965 Volkswagen Beetle discovered in Detroit nearly 40 years after it was stolen says he never stopped thinking about that car.

Joe MacDonald of Knoxville, Tenn., said he used to buy Beetles to fix up and sell. He had many of them, but he says he never stopped grieving for the red convertible that he had running "slick as a ribbon" before it was stolen.

The car was found in January when federal border agents checked the paperwork as it was about to be shipped overseas for restoration. MacDonald said he learned the car had been located from a reporter at WBIR-TV.

MacDonald has contacted U.S. Customs and Border Protection about getting the car back. He says they are sending him a form to fill out.
