Looks like vintage Volkswagens are attracting a lot of unwanted attention these days. A few weeks back The Eastsider wrote about the travails of a Texas woman whose beloved 1962 Volkwagen Beetle was stolen off a Highland Park street. Last night, another vintage Volkswagen – a 1963 VW bus, in this case – was stolen from a gated parking lot near Echo Park and Lucretia avenues. Noel Howard awoke this morning to find the blue and white bus (pictured above with a cat named Oliver) missing from the parking lot, reports his girlfriend in an email:
If anyone has information on the missing VW, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
