(INDIANAPOLIS) - A Michigan man says a big part of him as been ripped away with the theft of his restored 1970s Chevrolet Chevelle during a trip to Indianapolis for a classic car show.
Keith Parmer of Holt, Mich., said he was in disbelief when he found his box trailer's locks cut and the car gone from outside a motel Sunday.
The 48-year-old Parmer tells The Indianapolis Star he fell in love with muscle cars while growing up. He bought the Chevelle for less than $20,000 in 2008. He estimates he spent $300,000 on parts and labor to restore and upgrade it.
Jonathan Klinger of classic auto insurer Hagerty says it's common for similar restored cars to reach such high price tags.
Parmer is offering a $10,000 reward for the car.
