Sorry if this is a repost, did a search and didn't find anything...

Popped up on a Pontiac board a co-worker follows:

"Stolen new from Rowe motors East Lorain street Chrysler Plymouth dealer in Oberlin Ohio. Can you see the wing? Vintage Oberlin Police Dept. Photo."

Wonder if it's the one in the ad below?

Wile E. Coyote was the suspected thief, but he blew himself up with some TNT before he could be questioned.

It was a clever plan from the thieves!

As metal rusts much slower in water than exposed to damp air, it was gonna be stored under water for fifty years and then recovered when the values went back up!!! smilielol

But they mis-calculated the depth of the pond and the height of the wing so got caught-out and their plan was scuppered... slap

Lucky the peeps at ROWe had a boat and had already fitted AIR-Bag suspension to the Birdie.
A few pumps from an airline and she was afloat and free to fly back to the NEST! scratchchin
Time to crack open a SIX-PACK after a TORRED day... pity

Enough frivolity, WHERE IS SHE NOW??? Cry

Isn't the old saying, "A bird in the pond is worth two in the bush?"

This reminds me of the 1925 Bugatti:
