Early morning on November 6, thieves broke into Picture Car Warehouse in the San Fernando Valley and stole five vehicles, including Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s 1972 Dodge Charger. It doesn’t appear that his car was a particular target as the other stolen vehicles included a 2005 Mini Cooper, a BMW M3, a Ford Econoline van, and an F-150 pickup. Three cars have been recovered and two people are in custody. The Charger is not an inconspicuous car, even in LA. It may also have some bodywork damage and yellow paint transfer as it hit a taxi while being stolen from the warehouse. If you spot it, please contact the Los Angeles Police Dept. at 818-374-7611. More info on the heist at Hot Rod.
