Owner of stolen sprint car pleads for its return


LYKENS, Pa. (WHTM) – Police are investigating the theft of a sprint racing car in northern Dauphin County.

The car, a 1982 Ausherman frame super sportsmen, was stolen Saturday afternoon from the backyard of 321 Pottsville Street in Wiconisco Township, state police in Lykens said.

“It’s been there now for a couple years and it’s just odd because nobody has ever bugged that car. I mean, believe me, it’s been a talking piece. Everybody asks me, ‘what’s that,'” said Joe Bryson, one of the car’s owners.

The theft occurred around 1:30 p.m. Police said two men drove a red rollback tow truck to the location, loaded the car, then drove away.

“The money thing is not an issue to us. It’s the fact that the car, like I said, has a value to it that you can’t replace. I mean, this car has a man’s grandfather written all over it,” Bryson said.

Anyone with information should call Trooper Chubb at 717-362-8700 and reference incident number PA19-1492676.
