A lot of interesting pros and cons in this story — a California man's 1957 Chevy was stolen 30 years ago, and now he's getting it back.
The Santa Rosa Press Democrat has the story. Ian Wilson is a retired mechanic, and in some ways, this is a dream come true. The car is in way better condition than when it was stolen.
"There's all kinds of chrome added under the hood," said Wilson. "The headers look brand spankin' new. ... The tires, they look like they haven't even been around the block."
