One night last month, Bob Russell, who was unable to sleep, climbed out of bed and sat down at his computer to do some late night eBay searching. Russell, who lives in Southland, Texas, says that every so often he’d do a search for his 1967 Austin Healey, a beloved sports car that was stolen in 1970.
“I used to always look at Austin Healeys parked on the side of the road. Every once in a while, I’d search the Internet. I knew finding it would be impossible,” Russell told The Hamilton Spectator in Ontario.
His wife was happy, too. lt was the car in which they had their first date as a couple.
