It looks like that Army veteran who had his Mustang stolen will get to finish that restoration project after all.

Former Army Sgt. Martin May’s 1965 Fastback, which was taken from a storage facility in Southern Florida, has been recovered by police in South Carolina.  The thief was even said to be towing the car on May’s trailer when police spotted him driving a stolen pick-up towing the Mustang, according to a TC Palm news report.

May, who survived a sniper’s bullet in Iraq, was planning to start restoring the car to help him cope with PTSD when it was stolen.  The Mustang has been in his family since he was a kid.

The veteran says the ordeal of losing the car has made him appreciate it even more.

“I love it more now than I did before,” May told the TC Palm news. “You don’t appreciate something as much until you lose it and try to get it back again.”
