On January 14, 2012 a man wearing a winter coat, jeans, and blue stocking cap came to buy Les' 1969 Dodge Charger. The buyer arrived in a silver Dodge Ram with a dual-axle black trailer. The man purchased the car using certified checks from the Toronto Dominion Bank--only the checks turned out to be counterfeit.
Les thought he caught a break when he realized he had a picture of both the buyers face, and the license plate on the trailer. Unfortunately, the license plate on the trailer turned out be stolen, too.
The 1969 Dodge Charger is painted bright blue and has 3,400 kilometers (or about 2,100 miles) on the engine after undergoing a ground-up restoration.
To add more heartbreak to the story, Les told us on the phone he was selling his baby in order to take his kids to Disneyland. The trip is now on indefinite hold.
If you have seen either the truck and trailer, or the blue 1969 Dodge Charger, please immediately contact the authorities.
Spread the word and keep your eyes peeled for Les' Charger. We would love to be able to help make sure his kids end up taking that trip to Disneyland.
Hat tip to Harrel for bringing this to our attention.
