68-year-old Mike Chadwick was forced to leave the Mustang in a trailer parked near his home because his usual storage facility was closed for Labor Day Weekend. Thieves made off with Chadwick’s truck and the trailer containing his prize car. Chadwick believes thieves targeted him after he spent the weekend competing at Sonoma Raceway.

The find is especially important because Chadwick is planning on selling the car to help fund his retirement.
