This vehicle was stolen from our driveway in Long Beach, CA. Our driveway was blocked with a Ford F-350 that they managed to get under and break the gear to put it on neutral and push it out of the way. All in the middle of the worst storm we have seen in a long time. This all happened between the hours of 8 pm January 21st and 7 am January 22nd in which my husband returned from a long day at work to be the first to notice.

A neighbor saw my truck this morning on PCH and Temescal rd parked.  My wife drove there in a mad dash and the cops were called. A helicopter showed up and two Latin males that had been hanging around took off in a U Haul. The cops couldn't hold them because they hadn't been in the vehicle. The panel is now parked safely in my garage. Both sides have been hit but that can be fixed. Thanks for your help, Scott

To Whom it may concern,

My name is Scott Spencer and on Sept 30 my '56 was stolen in front of my house. This has been my project car for about 8 years and is my pride and joy.  The truck has a very distinct color and look to it (not to mention the license plate).  I don't have any pictures of it with its new olive paint job but I can send some that I took before.  I hope you guys can help me out.

Thank you,
