John Travolta

Classic Benz ... JACKED

9/19/2011 7:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0919_travolta_car_Flynet_EXJohn Travolta's vintage sports car was stolen right out from under his nose yesterday in Santa Monica ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us Travolta had parked his 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL on the street -- just a couple blocks from a Jaguar dealer.

We're told John was only in the dealership for about 10 minutes -- and when he returned ... his whip had vanished.

John went back to the Jag dealer and waited for police to show up to take a report. We're told there are no witnesses. Travolta's rep hasn't gotten back to us yet.

By the way ... that Benz can sell for as much as $100,000.

And you thought your weekend sucked.

I'm sure Travolta said..."Boy, I wish I could've caught him doing it. I'd have given anything to catch that ******* doing it. It'd been worth him doing it just so I could've caught him doing it."

Even the insurance pay out doesn't ease the loss of such a prized classic. Hopefully he will get the bare bones back and he will be able to restore it.

That's so ugly it would be hard to sell in the economy. He is better off with the 100k he will get from the insurance company. U should of had lojack

Why would he park a few blocks away from the dealer? Makes no sense.

Why would you park a car worth as much as $100,000, blocks away from the Jaguar Dealership? ...and btw, that's a seriously ugly car.

What kind of idiot would steal something like this? He won't be able to drive it anywhere and if he attempts to sell it--he would be arrested.

I would have to say that this is a good thing. He looks like the world's biggest 'mo in that car.

why would some one park a couple of blocks away from the dealership if you are going to be there for 10 minutes? Something is odd about this, what dealership has no parking for there customers?
