Robert Russell, who lives in Texas, told Los Angeles County sheriff's officials that he had never given up searching for the 1967 Austin-Healey. It was stolen from his Philadelphia home in 1970 — the morning after his second date with his future wife. He saw it recently advertised for sale on eBay by a Beverly Hills car dealer, with the original vehicle ID number. Russell and his wife came out to LA and now have their car back.
