. . . a Volkswagen Bus that was reported stolen in Washington more than 35 years ago.
Yep, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials say they examined a seaport container scheduled to be exported to the Netherlands on Oct. 19 and found the 1965 VW Bus inside.
A run of the VIN number on a law enforcement database revealed the vehicle had been reported stolen in Spokane, Washington, on July 12, 1974. And not only was it still running, it was in cherry condition.
Officials said the insurance company that currently owns the sweet ride has been notified about the seizure.
