Hello

Our car was just stolen out of our driveway early this morning, May 7, 2011, while we were sleeping.  It must have happened some time between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m.  We live in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles.  We have a gated driveway, the chain was broken on the gate, it was manually opened and we think that the car must have been rolled out of the driveway, cause it has a pretty loud engine noise and we or our dog would have heard it.  The details of the car are below:

1969 Mercedez Benz 280 SL Convertible
VIN/12005383
LIC/5HWN771
Vehicle Color:  Black
Where Stolen: From our driveway on Waverly Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90027
Date of Theft:  May 7, 2011 early morning hours
Reporting Agency and Case number: LAPD Northeast Case # 111110729 
Reporting Agency contact number  213-485-2563 Police, 323-574-0584 Owner (Chris)
Further description of the vehicle: Newly upholstered red interior and woodwork, with black carpeting throughout. It also has black visors. Newer stereo, probably installed in the 90s. 
Unique identifiers: Soft top has tear on  rear vinyl window. Clock doesn't work.

Gary;

Great news!  Our 1966 Mustang Fastback GT was found today 2 Apr 11 in Fresno, CA.  Minor damage to drivers door and steering wheel was cut. Battery was stolen but so far no other damage noted except for a little high speed wear.  Hopefully the engine and transmission has no damage but is still to be determined.

Thank you so very much for your posting on this website as one cannot appreciate it's importance until you actually experience a classic car theft.  I had thought for sure the car would either have been in a chopshop or in a container to be shipped.  Our nightmare is over and truly hope for recovery of every vehicle you have listed.  God bless!
