Having your car stolen is probably one of the worst feelings in the world but, in a twist of fate, Tommy Cook was reunited with his 1969 Chevrolet Camaro after 17 years.

According to The Free Lance-Star, Cook’s car was stolen from his auto repair business in 2003. Unfortunately, it appears the thieves had an eye on his Camaro as the engine was removed and was likely hauled away on a trailer.

Regardless of how it was stolen, Cook never gave up hope that he’d be reunited with his muscle car. However, the chances of getting it back dimmed as the years passed.

Cook’s luck changed one day as an acquaintance was in the market for a 1968 Camaro and asked him to check one out at a nearby shop.  When he was there, a 1969 Camaro caught his eye.

He asked about the green muscle car and was told it was originally painted Hugger Orange, just like his stolen Camaro. After asking a couple more questions and getting answers that didn’t make sense, Cook realized this Camaro had a lot in common with his missing car including rare “factory-installed brackets to accommodate a fold-down rear seat.”

Convinced he was looking at his missing car, Cook found another VIN stamp and this one didn’t match the other VIN.  It also looked like someone attempted to hide the number, so he wrote it down.  After getting back home, he looked up his stolen vehicle report and found the VIN matched the one from his missing Camaro.

Cook contacted police and told them the story of how he found his stolen car.  While police were ready to go get the vehicle, he delayed them until after his friend came to pick up the 1968 Camaro.

Cook told the paper the ‘owner’ of his stolen car was an innocent victim and said there weren’t any issues when police came to get it. Interestingly enough, he wasn’t the first person to own the stolen muscle car as it reportedly traded hands four times since it was originally taken.

While it’s sad the car was missing for so long, Cook noted previous owners put some work into the Camaro and even installed a 5.7-liter V8. As result, he said it’s in better shape now than when it was stolen.


Geely has released official ‘spy photos’ of an upcoming crossover, which will go into production in the third quarter of 2021.

The company is keeping details under wraps, but confirmed the model will ride on the Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) which underpins the Polestar 2, Volvo XC40 and an assortment of Lynk & Co vehicles. The platform is also used on Geely’s Xing Yue crossover coupe and Xing Rui sedan.

While the pictures aren’t very revealing, the crossover sort of resembles a larger XC40. However, there are a number of differences including a unique front fascia, a flatter beltline and a longer rear overhang. We can see a panoramic glass roof and a grille with vertical bars.

Engine options remain unconfirmed, but could potentially carryover from the Xing Yue. If that’s the case, we can expect a mild-hybrid variant with a turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine that produces 188 hp (140 kW / 190 PS) and 221 lb-ft (300 Nm) of torque.

There could also be a plug-in hybrid variant which uses the aforementioned engine and an electric motor to produce a combined output of 255 hp (190 kW / 258 PS) and 306 lb-ft (415 Nm) of torque. Lastly, there could be a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder pumping out 235 hp (175 kW / 238 PS) and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque.

While a lot of questions remain, Paultan says reports out of China indicate the crossover is codenamed the KX11 and will measure approximately 189 inches (4800 mm) long. If that number is correct, the model could potentially have a third-row seat.

3️ is the magic number.

A rare Porsche Carrera GT that’s been modified and turned into a track-day weapon is currently up for sale in Germany.

This Carrera GT was delivered new to Belgium in 2005. Soon after, it was sent to GPR Racing where it was fitted with a host of upgrades designed to improve its racetrack credentials. These upgrades cost a cool €220,000 (~$270,000).

Key upgrades include bespoke wishbones and pushrods, a new AP Racing braking system, an integrated air lift system, a high-performance clutch, a safety cage, BBS magnesium wheels, an automatic fire extinguishing system, and a fuel system that meets motorsport specifications. The car also includes a Motec control unit.

According to the listing at Mechatronik, the owner intended on racing the car in the World Endurance Championship but regulation changes prevented him from doing so. With no chance of competing, it was parked in the owner’s collection where it has been collecting dust ever since.

The tweaked 5.7-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine pumps out 650 hp and the car likely drives just as well as it did new because it has just 1,243 miles (2,000 km) on the odometer.

Unsurprisingly, it doesn’t come cheap. In fact, it has an asking price of €849,000 ($1.04 million), but when you consider that many standard Carrera GTs are fetching over $1 million, it doesn’t sound like such a bad deal after all.
