Man Reunited With Stolen ’68 Camaro After 33 Years !!
What the hell is going on with early Chevrolet Camaros? Every bozo and his mother is stealing them. First there was Papa John, who we helped reunite with his 1971 1/2 Camaro in 2009. He missed his car after having to sell it 26 years prior. Then earlier this year, someone in Detroit stole it. But luckily after a few days, someone found it, and the pizza chef got his prized mullet-mobile back.
We’re not kidding, the Camaro is the most stolen sports car in America!
Now, to add to the pile of early stolen Camaros, there’s Ron Reolfi from North Canton, Ohio. According to Cleveland 19 News, back when Reolfi was in college at the University of Akron in the early 80s, he bought a 1968 Camaro for 600 smackers. He and his dad spent a year fixing her up. They painted it, fixed up the interior, slapped on a new fender, and upgraded the engine.
Then, just after they had finished fixing up their 327 V8-powered muscle car, someone swiped it from the grocery store parking lot where Reolfi worked. Describing just how heartbroken he was when he saw his car missing from the parking lot, Reolfi told Cleveland 19 News: “I can remember looking at the light I parked in under, and it not being there, and being crushed… When it was first stolen, I drove around for weeks, even months trying to find it.”
