Someone stole Dr Phils 57 Chev from a Burbank repair shop

TV host Phil McGraw's '57 Chevy, which was stolen from a repair shop in Burbank.

 McGraw, who's known to many as simply 'Dr. Phil,' was driving the car on Sunday when it broke down. The car was towed to RODZ Fabrication Co. in the 2800 block of North Lincoln Street in Burbank.

 The theft is believed to have taken place around midnight on Sunday when a burglar alarm was tripped, said Burbank Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn.

 Investigators believe the thieves cut the lock to the secured gate then pried open a metal roll-up gate, Ryburn said. Dr. Phil received a call that his classic car had been stolen several hours after the theft, according to TMZ.

 Police are now working to recover the vintage ride, which is worth about $100,000.

Sidenote, I wonder how many cars are reported stolen in Burbank every week?

  1. A $100K car, stolen just hours after it was brought into the shop.
    Hundred bucks says it was an inside job.
