The idea of anyone having their Mustang stolen bothers us a lot here at The Mustang Source, but the story of Martin May’s missing Ford pony car has ticked us off even more.
The 47-year-old Army National Guardsman Sgt. May, who lost his left eye, teeth and sinuses from a sniper shot in Iraq in 2009, is searching for a 1965 Fastback stolen from him that he’s been driving since age 14.
The Mustang was apparently snatched from a storage spot in Sebastian, Florida, according to a WPTV Channel 5 news report. Even more ironic, the storage company’s surveillance video doesn’t show anyone taking the car and employees don’t seem to be quite sure when it was taken from the Sebastian storage facility.
May, however, is determined to find his Mustang.
“That’s my childhood, that’s my whole life,” the veteran told Channel 5 News, noting that he had plans on restoring the car to help cope with PTSD.
Anyone that might have any information about May’s stolen 1965 Fastback should contact the Sebastian Police Department at (772) 589-5233.
