Classic car returned in better shape
LAKEPORT, CALIFORNIA- A 1957 Chevy Bel Air that was stolen 30-years ago was returned to its owner and in a lot better shape than when he bought it.
Ian Wilson says he was shocked to hear from the California Highway Patrol that his long-lost Chevy was taken off a ship bound for Australia.
It was stolen from his house in 1984 and he says it was in sorry shape but had plans to restore it.
The classic was returned with a monogrammed interior, 17-inch racing wheels, rack-and-pinion steering and a 350-horsepower V-8 engine.
He says he bought it for $375 in 1975.
