    Man recovers car 42 years after theft

    Robert Russell told the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department that he had never given up searching for the 1967 Austin Healy after it was stolen from his Philadelphia home in 1970.

    I bet the dealer is mad over losing the car; the paper trail is going to be interesting

    Being a car guy, I'm glad the guy never gave up looking and finally got it back. I didn't see my Volkswagen for 9 years (it wasn't stolen) and finally got it back. Never thought I'd see it again. I'd go berzerk if someone stole it. Glad I've got my garage hooked to my monitored alarm.

    I had a Blazer(83) that was stolen in 1985, during the summer, after only having it 6 weeks.
    Had an alarm on the kitchen table all ready to go in.
    Can't believe he still had all the info on it.
    Wonder how that works, cause if he had ins. on it, wouldn't they have paid him off?
    Thereby ownership would not have been rightfully his anymore, me thinks?

    I would guess he did not have insurance. If I had to guess somebody either tagged the vehicle or forged a set of papers for the vehicle.

    I bought a new AH in '66, so I know how he felt about it. My GF sat me down with "I have some bad news."

    Seems some idiot put a dent in the driver's door. What a relief!
