An East Tennessee man who waited 40 years to find his stolen car must wait a little longer to get it back.

Joseph MacDonald said he has to petition U.S. Customs and Border Protection to get his 1965 VW beetle back.

The Beetle was stolen in 1974. Border Patrol agents in Michigan recovered the car in January as it was being sent to Canada.

MacDonald says he'll send his paperwork to the CBP and hopefully get his car back soon.
