    My friend parted my 71 VW bug, to repair his 67 Bug, so now that 71 doesn't even really exist as a car. My registration is due for it next month, should I pay to have it as a non op, or can I get away without doing anything? Will this come around to bite me in the ass later on?

    What's a non op? I didn't think you could register a car that isn't roadworthy.

    For cars that don't run, but maybe you one day want to fix it up, you register as non op (Non Operational) that way you don't have to pay for insurance or registration until it is road worthy.

    Save your money and re-register it when you "friend" brings your parts back.

    Or, move to a nice walkable city where you can stroll to your local bodega to buy hemp flower and bird seed to feed your family.

    My friend literally cut half of his VW and used my other half to make his car whole. So my car doesn't exist anymore there are no parts to give back. I purchased that VW a few years ago as a fun car to drive, but I quickly got over it as it isn't the most reliable form of transportation.

    Part out what's left to someone, or get a blowtorch and turn it into art.

    Yes, I've thought about this a lot in the last 2 minutes, it will be worth it. I will be known as the guy who has the VW jacuzzi, I mean who doesn't want that?

    Thanks for the idea, but I've decided on the VW jacuzzi, it will get me laid.

    Perhaps I should convert my Vega into a jacuzzi.
