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.

What's questionable here is why did he park blocks away from a car dealership? Pretty sure they have plenty of parking!

As a fellow Benz owner, I am so saddened by this!! A Benz owner and his/her car should never be involuntarily parted!!

I can't even get into my own car when I lock myself out. I wonder how thieves can do it in just a few seconds.

Dude is a one man glacier melting machine! More carbon from this cat than 5 Pittsburg steel mills. Hopefully this Benz will turn into parts 4 sale on EBay.

Sorry to hear that, John.
The suspect was probably one of those "downtrodden poor people" you're so anxious to help.
The rest of us were at work.

No biggie. He has enough cash to buy another one.
