Another major automotive event, another classic car stolen. This time, a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro was stolen in from Columbus, Ohio, while owner Jim Kirkpatrick was attending the annual Good Guys Show.
Kirkpatrick said the car was parked at Comfort Suites, and when he looked out of his window, the Camaro was gone, WDNT reported on Wednesday.
“You could see where they had popped the ignition, the chrome ring around the ignition, had popped it off and it was just laying right there where the car was,” he said.
A second car was also stolen from the hotel that was parked near the Camaro; a 1969 Chevelle was taken as well. Kirkpatrick said it’d only been four or five hours since he last checked on the car.
The owner added he’s spent around $35,000 restoring the car and putting personal touches into the build. Thankfully, the car is fully insured, but Kirkpatrick is offering a $500 reward to anyone with information about the car.
