Right as Mike Gomez put the finishing touches on the 1969 Mustang he and his wife Sheri were restoring, a thief hopped in and attempted to steal it. Gomez tried to stop him, suffering a broken foot in the process. The thief crashed into a brick wall, and the car was totaled.

Gomez's insurance company won't pay for the damages, and the thief can't afford to. But all is not lost for the Glendale, Arizona resident. Drew's Garage, located in Tempe, Arizona, has offered to fix the car after seeing a TV news report about the incident.

There's still a ways to go, but it looks like Gomez's Mustang will be back on the road sooner rather than later.
