Man finds his stolen Camaro after 16 years

16 years after his beloved 1969 Camaro was stolen, Edward Neeley located his long lost car by chance while searching the internet for a car to replace it. Neeley calls the fact he found the car, which he had first purchased 30 years ago at the age of 18, "divine intervention".

Although it's great to hear a story about a stolen car being reunited with an owner that loved it, this story isn't without a downside. What Neeley called "divine intervention" would likely be given a different name by the Camaro's current owner Brent Dockery. Dockery purchased the car for $16,000 4 years ago on Ebay without having any knowledge that the car was stolen. Since then he has spent a considerable amount of money ($10,000), time and effort restoring the Camaro.
Below is a picture of how the Camaro looks like currently.

The two men are currently trying to reach an agreement regarding the parts and money Dockery put into the car while he had it. So far it has been difficult, but Dockery concedes that the car will return home after 16 long years once the men find a way to settle the matter. Neeley understandably is overjoyed at the impending return of his missing Camaro after such a long time. Dockery plans to track down the person he purchased the car from in an attempt to recoup some of his losses.

Some say that his blood is actually RON98 petrol and some say that his right foot weighs over 20kg. But all that we know about Faez is that he loves to drive and is a JDM enthusiast.
