TV personality Dr. Phil McGraw was left heartbroken this week when his $100,000 ’57 Chevy was stolen after he took it in for repair at a Los Angeles auto shop.

McGraw was working on his classic car’s transmission with a friend  in an attempt to get the vehicle to start, TMZ.com reported.  Unsuccessful, McGraw took his Bel Air model to a Burbank auto shop to have the pros take a look.

Unfortunately for McGraw, thieves reportedly broke into the shop and nabbed the car. Police sources told TMZ.com that the burglars smashed a roll-up door at the shop to get to McGraw’s car.

The sought-after classic car, which is a choice model to be modified and restored by gear heads,  was first introduced by Chevrolet in 1956. It has since become an iconic ride, turning up in television and films and often used as a model for toy cars and in graphics.
