Dr. Phil
suffered a loss that is only comprehensible to die-hard car collectors -- his precious, '57 Chevy was stolen late last night ... TMZ has learned. 
 
Dr. Phil and a friend were working on the tranny, trying to get the car to start.  When their attempts proved unsuccessful, the good Doc had the car flatbedded to a repair shop in Burbank.

Several hours later, Phil got the call car lovers dred -- the Chevy -- one of the most awesome cars ever -- had been stolen.

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.

Know the difference between words and meanings, it is a 'travesty' not a 'tragedy'.

Oh, poor Dr. Phil. He can find sympathy in the dictionary between sh1t and syphilis! And the car is
actually worth whatever it can sell for at a Barrett-Jackson auction. (nobody cares how much it cost to restore) Maybe Oprah will buy him another for Xmas...

You asked what someone could do with a car like this? They'll probably find the mayor of Tiajuana driving it? LOL

They did a news piece in Arizona years ago (Dateline maybe?) about a number of high profile cars from there disappearing. They were mostly found in Mexico with a lot of honchos driving them.
