A 1930 Ford Model A roadster belonging to a California man was stolen from the Henry Ford museum parking on June 26.

According to Dearborn, Mich., police, the theft happened between 9 a.m. and 5:55 p.m. while the owner was visiting the museum. The Model A was inside of a 2007 Iner Carrier enclosed trailer, and the whole rig was being towed by 2001Ford F-250. The truck, the trailer and the Model A are all missing.

The Model A is black and yellow with a tan convertible top. Its California license plate number is 670RHG, and its VIN is A2970284.

The stolen F-250 reportedly is white on top and gold on the bottom. It has a NASCAR sticker in the rear window and a NASCAR license-plate holder, and its California plate number is 6P95641.

The trailer is a white two-axle model with the California license plate 4JT5217.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of the Model A, the F-250 or the trailer, call the Help Eliminate Auto Theft tip line at (800) 242-4328 or visit www.miheat.org.

While helping reunite an owner with his classic car would be rewarding in its own right, up to $2,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the thief and the return of the Model A.

*LoJack helps in the arrest of one suspect and recovery of a Classic 1968 Ford Mustang, stolen in San Diego *

Vehicle: 1968 Ford Mustang

Activation: San Diego Police Department, May 14, 2012 12:36 pm

Recovery: San Diego Police Department, May 14, 2012 1:03 pm

When the owner of this Classic 1968 Ford Mustang discovered that her vehicle had been stolen, she reported the theft to the San Diego Police Department. It was the Police department’s routine entry of the vehicle information into the nationwide law enforcement stolen vehicle computer system that automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle. LoJack is the only theft recovery system that is directly operated by law enforcement. This interface is seamless and instantaneous.

The LoJack silent homing signals were picked up by a San Diego Police ground unit on the LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC) installed in the patrol car. Within 30 minutes after the activation, the Classic Ford Mustang was tracked and found parked in a city street in the city of San Diego. The officer tracking the Classic Ford mustang arrested the suspect who was sitting in the driver’s seat with the keys to the vehicle in his pocket. The suspect was arrested for possession of a stolen vehicle and auto theft investigators will handle the investigation for further follow up and other charges.

This Classic 1968 Ford Mustang had been installed with LoJack 2-years ago in Los Angeles, California.

The current owner was happy that the Classic Ford Mustang had LoJack and had been recovered undamaged

Guest Foggy norm

Didn't want to comment the other day, that I didn't think the vintage Ford was the target. Here in southeast michigan, the first thing that came to my mind was the vehicle pulling the trailer and the trailer. The Ford was found today, I believe in the trailer, the writer wasn't to clear about it, found in East side Detroit...no truck.

And Foggy norm is correct, the tow vehicle, Ford pickup was long gone.

Detroit—Police have recovered the 1930 Classic Ford Model A convertible and its transport trailer today on the city's east side.

The car was recovered undamaged, said Dearborn Police Lt. Wayne Seccombe.

"It was perfectly fine," said Seccombe. "What do you do with something like that? You can't go for a ride in it."

The car was discovered in an area near Mt. Elliott and Gratiot, said Seccombe.

The pickup truck hauling the car and trailer has not been found.

No arrests have been reported in the case of the vintage vehicle that went missing June 26 from the parking lot of the Henry Ford Museum between 9 a.m. and 5:55 p.m. The car belongs to a California man.

A $1,000 reward had been offered from the owner for information leading to its return.
