You want a Christmas miracle? Here’s a Christmas miracle.
Lynda Asip of Salinas, California bought a 1967 Ford Mustang in 1986 — when she was 17 — for $800. It was stolen shortly thereafter, never to be seen again. And why would it? A ’67 Mustang, restored properly, can fetch about $50,000.
She even had custom plates for it — “LYNDA67.”
This week, she got it back.
