John Travolta

I Wasn't Really Attached to

My STOLEN $100k Mercedes

4/9/2012 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE



0409_travolta_videoJohn Travolta says he wasn't too traumatized when some crook stole -- and then chopped up -- his rare 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280 SL ... telling us, "I'm not that attached to material stuff."

Translation: I can buy another one.

Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston were leaving dinner at Katsu-Ya in Brentwood this weekend when we asked about the ill-fated vintage car ... which was stolen last year while the actor was car shopping for Jaguars in Santa Monica.

Cops eventually tracked the car down to a nearby chop shop ... where it had already been stripped for parts. The two guys behind the auto-theft -- Michael Green and D.L. Rayford ... both confessed and were sentenced to prison time.

Travolta says the whole ordeal was "terrible" -- but fortunately, he's got more cars ... including the classic Jaguar the couple zipped off in that night.

Harvey, get to work on some night vision cameras and the software to enhance them to normal viewing in the editing process. Gosh, I think Celebs would love talking to paps if they weren't being blinded like a deer in the headlights all the time.

I think you need a new translator, TMZ. These parents lost their child. I think they have some insight into what matters and what doesn't.

How about asking John T more interesting/hard-hitting questions such as:

1) Are you wearing a toupet under that cap?

2) What do you think of people who wear a toupet?

Come on TMZ, I thought you were a breaking news mechanism, but I guess not.
