John Travolta's $100K car stolen

John Travolta’s 1970 Mercedes-Benz was stolen right off the street as the actor went inside a car dealership to check out some new cars.

John Travolta's $100K car stolen

Actor John Travolta drove his classic 1970 Mercedes Benz 280 SL to a Santa Monica car dealership to check out some Jaguars over the weekend when his car was stolen right from under him.

The police say the car was stolen at 3:46 p.m. on Berkeley Street – and Travolta said he was only inside the car dealership for 10 minutes! After finding out his car was missing, Travolta went back to the car dealership to wait for the police to arrive. There are reportedly no witnesses that saw anything suspicious and police currently have no leads on the case.

Travolta is an avid car collector, with his collection including a Rolls Royce and Jaguar XJ6. The car that was stolen is estimated to be worth $50,000-$100,000.

The Pulp Fiction actor is undoubtedly sad about his missing Mercedes – but at least it was not one of his classic Thunderbirds, which he says are his favorites.

"I have a '55, '56 and '57 Thunderbird -- American Fords in the great old tradition. I love the fact that they could achieve speed and distance with such style. I don't use them for long journeys anymore, but to just enjoy the drive," he told the Times of London.
