A man was reunited with his stolen car 42 years after the original theft thanks to his own detective works, reports CNN.

Texas resident Robert Russell’s 1967 Austin-Healey sports car was stolen in 1970 from his home at the time in Philadelphia. Since then, he has been checking the Internet looking for the vehicle.

According to CNN, he finally found it on eBay one day. It was being kept at a dealership in East Los Angeles.

After some coordination with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department and police in Philadelphia, he was finally reunited with his car.
