Man reclaims car stolen in 1970

A man whose prized sports car was stolen 42 years ago recovered the vehicle in California after spotting it on eBay, authorities said.

Robert Russell told Los Angeles County sheriff's officials that he had never given up searching for the 1967 Austin Healey after it was stolen from his Philadelphia home in 1970.

The 66-year-old retired sales manager from Southlake told the Dallas Morning News he paid a friend 3,000 US dollars for the car.
