Missouri man sees classic car stolen 16 years ago online, gets reunited with Camaro in Utah
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) ' A Missouri man and his classic car have been reunited 16 years after the vehicle was stolen.
Edward Neeley, of Jefferson City, Mo., picked up his red 1969 Chevy Camaro in Salt Lake City on Tuesday after tracking it down in Utah last month.
The Deseret News of Salt Lake City (http://bit.ly/raLn1d ) reports Neeley contacted Utah authorities after he saw the Camaro listed for sale online.
Investigators say the Utah seller had bought the car four years ago on eBay and also is a victim. The Syracuse man was unaware its vehicle identification number had been switched.
After an investigation, the Utah Motor Vehicle Enforcement Division returned the car to Neeley, who was determined to be the rightful owner.
Neeley had the car shipped back home Tuesday.
