My sister's classic car was stolen yesterday from her carport by a tow truck. She has filed a police report. Meanwhile we have been searching online for the car or any leads when we stumbled across this website. Could you please post her car on your website. It's been in the family for years and there is much sentimental value attached to this car. I have attached pictures of the car. Here is the information:

1950 Chevrolet Deluxe Convertible 2 Door
VIN/2HKD38221
LIC/71B4739 (CA Old Style Black on Yellow plates)
Color: Metallic Blue
Where Stolen: Buena Park 90621
Date of Theft: 3/4/11 10:45am
Reporting Agency / Case #: Buena Park PD - Case # 11-08297
Reporting Agency Contact Number: (714) 562-3901
Further Description: Stock radio, glass packs in the exhaust system, 2 gas filters (one original and a new one). It's all the original engine, transmission and radiator, they've just been rebuilt. The back left rear by the light there is a spot about the size of a dime where the paint has been chipped off. Interior floor short shag blue, upholstery mainly a cream white color with some light blue and dark blue accents in places The interior door panels are cream white. No handles to open the windows, no armrests, no weatherstripping on the windows, no mirrors on outside and no rear view mirror.

She double checked and the VIN provided matches the DMV paperwork. There is only one plate on the back of the car and it is the old style license plate, yellow with black letters/numbers.

If there is anything else we need to do to get this information on your website please let me know.

Thank you, Tina
