It’s not every day you recover a stolen Ferrari sports car; and it’s certainly even rarer to recover one lost to theft for nearly three decades.

Vehicle theft, by the by, is not going away. Despite all sorts of technological advances geared to making cars harder to steal, car thieves continue to update their skill sets as stealing vehicles a very lucrative criminal enterprise.
Perhaps ironically, California is home to the cities with the highest rates of auto theft in the nation, as the Golden State is in many ways the ancestral home of the nation’s “car culture,” spawned by cinematic classics such as American Graffiti.

It’s just one more thing for vehicle owners and operators to worry about.
