Back in 2012 Tom Laskowski’s beloved 1968 Pontiac Tempest was stolen from a storage facility in Seven Hills, Ohio. While others told Laskowski and his wife the classic car was long gone, they never gave up hope, even offering at one point a $10,000 reward for the Pontiac’s return. The day of reckoning has come after 9 years and the Laskowskis have their Tempest back.

There’s a long history with this ’68 Pontiac Tempest. Tom Laskowski’s father purchased it way back in 1975, making it a beloved family heirloom and not just another vehicle. His son poured not only love into the car but also $100,000 to make it a showstopper.

When the car was originally stolen, both the Laskowskis and police searched and found zero trace of it. Understandably, many believed it had been snuck out the country in a shipping container and sent overseas, which sadly is a common practice.
