Los Angeles: A 1965 Chevrolet which was stolen from outside filmmaker Quentin Tarantino`s house 17 years ago in Hollywood, has been recovered by police in Oakland.
The director used the iconic red car in his 1994 film `Pulp Fiction` and then opted to drive it home.
It was recovered following an ongoing auto theft investigation, reported TMZ.
Law enforcement sources reportedly said that police officers had arrested a man suspected of classic car theft in Southern
California. Although he was not arrested for stealing the Chevy in question, the investigation led authorities to the Oakland area, where the automobile was found.
The car`s number had been changed.
The unidentified man, who was arrested, will not be charged with stealing the car because the statute of limitations on auto theft has run out.
Police officials are now trying to reach Tarantino to let him know the car has been found - almost two decades after it was stolen.
