Last week, Armstrong tweeted photos from his beloved ride and pleaded for any information regarding his return.

“My car was a STOLEN 1962 Chevy II,” Armstrong tweeted. “This car is near and dear to all of our hearts and has been part of the GD family for over 30 years. Please direct any observations, advice or information to the Costa Mesa Police Department.”

The thieves had stolen “high-value items, including two electric guitars, an amp and a white 1962 Chevrolet Nova 2-door” from a local business between Friday evening and Saturday morning, police said.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department later checked a tip on the car at the request of police. On Tuesday evening, they found the vehicle, abandoned in El Modena, an unincorporated part of the city of Orange.

Armstrong shared his joy on Instagram.

“False alarm, turns out I forgot where I parked it…PLEASURE! The truth is whoever stole it left it parked. Joy Ride? Maybe… Who knows, we live in desperate times. Thank goodness it’s all in one room. No damage. Thank you, thank you to everyone who looked for my Chevy,” Armstrong said, for a photo of his smiling face.

The guitars and amp are still in circulation, officials say, and all items, including the car, are valued at $48,000 in total.

Now that he has found the car, Armstrong can walk the “Boulevard of Shattered Dreams”.
