The car is worth $100,000.  Law enforcement sources tell us ... the evildoers smashed a roll-up door at the shop to get at the car.

Cops are on the case.

This car was in a trailor or a shipping container very shortly after it was stolen and is probably out of the country by now.

His own fault.

Hire a mechanic and buy the parts and install in your own garage.

Serves him right

Someone in Dr. Phil's position shouldn't be messing around with trannies. Blackmail is a bitch.

It's Burbank, what do you expec? That said, I d think that Dr. Phil should take this in stride. The loss is minimal compared to real losses in the world.

If the car won't start, why are they working on the transmission?

Unless someone was randomly watching that shop it has to be an inside job made to look like a break in.

A 100 grand I highly doubt it - but in any case it was obviously and inside job between the tow company and the mechanic shop - any fool can figure this one out.

He shouldn't have been flaunting his "precious" car around town. And besides thats NO news of ANY kind.
