If you happen to be in the Land Down Under, you might be on the lookout for a stolen 1999 Corvette.

The black convertible, along with a white 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback, Land Down Underwere stolen from a “panel beating workshop” – as they apparently call a body shop down there – in Melbourne, Australia.

The two cars were stolen after crooks broke through the back door of the Clayton South shop between 5 p.m. Jan. 24 and 10 a.m. on Jan. 25.

Police say the two cars were just in the shop for minor repairs and are worth a total of $120,000 – there must be quite a markup on American cars by the time they get to Australia!

Detectives from the Kingston Crime Investigation Unit have released photos of the stolen cars and ask that anyone with information about the crime to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au.

Apparently, thieves in the area have expensive taste as on the same day as the Corvette/Mustang thefts, a Porsche 911 Coupe, Mercedes-Benz S350, and Nissan 370Z coupe were also taken from a home in Doncaster.

Police don’t know if the two crimes are connected.
