Sometimes the unthinkable happens in life and things can change in the split of a second. How about putting your heart and soul and a lot of hard earned money and energy into something so valuable. Not only valuable in terms of money, but holds a sentimental possession that might not be sold at any price. Then one day, it’s stolen from under you.
That’s what happened to Murray Pozvek’s ’66 blue Mustang. This ‘Stang was his “show stopper”, his custom piece of art and worth a pretty penny at $85,000. It was stolen from his parent’s Montrose home in Australia between the dates of June 20th and July 7th when the family was out of town. Pozvek went to check on the car, as he did once a week, and this time he came to find that it was gone and he was in complete shock.
“I actually thought someone was playing a joke. I couldn’t believe it,” Mr Pozvek said. One of the garage windows had been broken in, giving the thieves entry where the beloved classic was sitting and where they obviously didn’t belong. This car featured a “kill switch” and would have required a tow truck or trailer to be moved so somebody may have had their eyes on this thing for some time.
This isn’t a car you’d pass on the street and not notice, it’s a highly identifiable car that is likely to turn some heads if stumbled upon. It has been shown at many car shows in the past. The license plate reads, IAMA66.
Like any car enthusiast that has put everything they have into something, he desperately wants it back. He has owned the car for nine years and has a lot invested into it and it’s not all monetary.
