A Rare Pink Dodge Challenger Muscle Car Stolen by crooks has been found. Inspector Clouseau never had it so easy.
Some thieves in Tennessee had the bright idea to steal a Furious Fuchsia-colored 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T, one of the most distinct vehicles ever made. The bulky coupe was a special edition throwback to the “Panther Pink” Challengers of the 1970s, which used the name under license from the comedy franchise.
The crooks grabbed the eye-catching muscle car from the driveway of a Mt. Juliet home just after 1AM on Saturday, according to News Channel 5. A security camera from a home nearby captured audio of what sounds like a truck backing up and then stealing the vehicle.
As the morning progressed, the car, one of just 1,000 like it that were built, may have been involved in a high speed chase through town that reached speeds of 100 mph, as reported by News 4. Police located it near a Subaru that had been reported stolen and pursued the two vehicles. The Dodge sped off, while the Subaru was abandoned as its driver escaped into the woods on foot.
On Monday, police got a call from a fisherman who came across the Challenger parked near a boat ramp on the Cumberland River in nearby Nashville. He happened to see the news report and knew he had the catch of the day.
Police have not yet to identify any suspects in this case.Categories: Auto News, Blog
