Dr. Phil speaks out about stolen Chevy, reward offered
Not surprisingly, McGraw told the website that he is quite upset over the event. McGraw, a psychologist and daytime television host, is particularly peeved about how the theft allegedly occurred.
According to McGraw, the car thieves bypassed a Shelby Cobra and Porsche 911 Turbo (with the keys inside), to get to his 1957 Chevy convertible. “You just feel violated,” said McGraw.
Although it would seem unlikely that a stolen ’57 Chevy would go far, detectives told McGraw that four other Bel Airs had been stolen in Southern California recently. The doctor told Drive On that he fears the car might be smuggled out of the country to an overseas buyer.
Aside from the details surrounding the crime, McGraw also expressed his immense admiration for the car to Drive On. “I love the fins, the grille – everything about it,” said McGraw. “It always hit me as just right,” he added. The vehicle had been fully restored, according to McGraw. Not only did McGraw “beef up the brakes” and add up to date tires, he also put in a satellite radio.
