NEWARK, NJ -- The New Jersey owner of a 1969 Chevy Camaro SS stolen nearly 36 years ago says she's in disbelief after the California Highway Patrol called to tell her they've recovered the car. Back in February, a Santa Maria man bought the car on Ebay from a private seller in Tennessee.
"I saw some video of it. It looked pretty good. It was quite eye catching," said Keith Williams.
When Williams first purchased the hot rod on Ebay, he didn't realize it was also a hot item.
"Initially, she thought is was a crank call and hung up on him a couple times," Johnes said.
"Being we're in New Jersey and this was recovered in California, I couldn't believe it, and I still can't believe it,
but I think it's just great!" said Janice Maffucci, the original owner.
The car had been stolen from the Post Office where her father worked 36 years ago.
The CHP says this is one of the oldest vehicle's it's ever recovered, possibly the oldest

WOW, maybe there is hope for our law system after all, maybe. When I was 18 I had a 67 Camaro with a 327 in it at about 400hp. I got a ticket one time in it for 98mph, good thing they got us on the way home from drag racing lol It was lots of fun to say the least.
