Let me know when they can come pick up my car and bring it back restored.

Nice story and video Adam.
Don't want to be a Debbie Downer this time of year, but I was about 18 and owned a maroon '67 bug had new paint on it really neat car.
The one time I parked it in front of my apartment, it was stolen, no insurance. When found it had been completely stripped.
Had a tick under my eye for a year or two after that. It was one of three VW/Porsche's stolen in our family. Looked at the world differently after that.
With that have a great holiday everyone.

Yeah, my first car was stolen in front of my high school, while the football team watched, they got past a CLUB and an alarm in less then a minute. They found the carcass a couple of days later.
