From clubroadster.net -
Since this horrible flood is all too local for me I figured I could help out. So I put a Facebook status out asking if anyone knew the owners. Within about 5 min I was in touch with the owners. Come to find out the car was actually stolen and the woman driving was drunk.
The family lost everything including all their cars so I to me this is perfect for me to help.
Yesterday the car finally got to my house! So started getting into immediately.
He eventually was able to get the car, and is currently working on restoring it for the family it was allegedly stolen from.
