Police are seeking help in solving a class car caper. A rare 1969 Chevy Camaro Rally Sport was stolen while it was in for repairs a Norcross automotive shop.
Kelly Calvo with IC Racing Corp said that someone took the vehicle after cutting the lock and breaking through the shop's gate on South Berkeley Lake Road early Monday.She said that the car's owner never got a chance to enjoy the vehicle."The owner purchased the vehicle, brought it straight here to get things worked on. So yes, it's very upsetting for them and for us," Calvo said. The owner of the shop believes someone targeted the vehicle because there are many other valuable cars on the lot and none of them were touched."It was drivable, whoever took it did drive it out," Calvo said. Gwinnett County police are investigating. Calvo hopes those who know what happened will call police."The owner is upset. It's a rare vehicle, he's working with us. We know him so he wasn't a new customer but we feel very bad about this," said Calvo.The auto repair shop says this vehicle is priceless. They're offering a $3,000 reward for the safe return of the classic Camaro.
