Who knew eBay was a place to turn as a "lost and found"...or more like a stolen and found?  For one man, a decades-long cross-country auto theft case is partially solved thanks to the online auction site.

FOX News Radio's Jane Metzler reports:

(eBay Commerical) "eBay, make shopping exciting."

His eBay browsing, a bit more exciting than he bargained for.  Robert Russell, spotting the sports car that was stolen from his home in Philadelphia 42 years ago.  The Austin Healy was in East Los Angeles.

Russell moved from Philly to Texas, but never stopped trying to track down his stolen car for sentimental reasons.  Its value also appreciated - Russel bought the sports car for $3,000, it's now worth $23,000.
