Spider Cars - VW Bug

The cars are sadly gone!

The directions were for going north on I-5 and we were going south, but we drove back and forth, north and south, and up and down and couldn't locate the Spiders. Wolf Creek is tiny, so we should have been able to see it. Maybe it is gone, or maybe hard to see because the bushes there are overgrown?

October 2014: Photo added. The sculptures are still visible; we've simplified the directions.

Directions were a bit hard to follow. If you are headed North on I-5, get off at Wolf Creek and make your first left which takes you under the freeway and then take your first right towards Wolf Creek on Frontage Road. It is about 1,500 feet down Frontage Road.
