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.

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.

Really stupid - lojack offers protection for older cars - i have this on all my rides - he should have checked shops security - guess the shop had no fence -etc .
should have contacted jay leno for shop advice -
or take to his shop - very secure - we have 3 layers
of security before you get on our shop property !
and once we finish a restoration -we have lojack
installed - hagerty ins recomends this - good luck
hope you find your ride - without damage .

beside all the bad comments,it is sad to have any car taken from anybody.i think that as busy as these people are they really need to check out the shops that work on old cars and understand the value of these rides.i don't blame dr.phil,but he really needed to handle the repair a little more hands on or he would not have lost it.this is the third time i have seen a 57 chevy stolen at a body shop,life sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
