Family's $25k stolen vintage car returned safely
A FAMILY heirloom worth about $25,000, but potentially four times that has been returned to its rightful owner.
A 1949 FX Holden stolen from a Ridge Rd, Maroochydore property in May has been recovered from the roadside in Kenilworth, and returned to the owner.
Three men were charged over the theft, one believed to be a high-level Rebels bikie.
Sunshine Coast Gang Squad officer in charge Sergeant Wade Lee said it was extremely pleasing to be able to return the vehicle to the elderly man who was in the process of restoring the car, which had been in his family, when it was stolen.
