Earlier in the week, a Chicagoland Petrolheads and Car Spotters post came up reporting a stolen classic Camaro.
Stories like this are usually bleak, with many posts like this staying unsolved for an eternity. In fact, car-jackings are a pandemic in the Chicagoland area as of late. And let’s not get started on wheel thefts, that might be a separate article. (Beware Honda owners!)
This is not one of those bleak tales. Enter the eagle-eyed car spotter who was walking through a Chicago neighborhood, over 30 miles away from the crime scene, and snapped this picture:
It didn’t take long for the community to contact the owner as well as the proper authorities, to help reunite the car with its owner.
Not only can we assume the owner is thrilled to have their car back, but we are glad that we could contribute to helping this story have a good ending. The story of CPCS helping find the Camaro aired March 1st, on CBS Channel 2 News.
Our members, as always, are top-notch, and now, CPCS can claim to be more than just posts about awesome cars.
Nobody likes a car getting stolen, and it’s awesome that our community can come together to solve a crime. Keep on spotting!
