It may not be automatic, systematic or hydromatic, but that didn’t stop someone from taking off with John Travolta’s classic Mercedes-Benz.

It may not have been Greased Lightning, but Travolta’s 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL is just as valuable as his iconic movie ride. What’s worse, he only left his car for about 10 minutes while he went into a Jaguar dealership in Santa Monica. He parked it on the street, went inside, and when he returned, it was gone.

There were no witnesses to the theft and no new leads as of yet. The 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL can sell for about $100,000. Next time John, forget the exercise and park in the dealership.
