Quentin Tarantino - Pulp Fiction Car Recovered Two Decades After Theft

Twenty years after the cherry red Chevy convertible was stolen, Quentin Tarantino had his Pulp fiction car recovered. Police think they have found the iconic cherry red Malibu. Director Quentin Tarantino’s whip was recovered in the San Francisco Bay area earlier this week, the San Bernardino County Sun reports. According to Sherrif Sgt. Albert Anolin’s account, an investigation into an old Chevelle Malibu in the city of Victorville on April 18 led investigators to the particular Malibu in the Oakland area. The investigators then confirmed that the vehicle had belonged to the director and was reported stolen back in 1994.

Unsurprisingly, the investigators concluded that the car had been resold. The current owner of the Malibu had nothing to do with the theft and had just been the victim of a fraud. Plus, the statute of limitations on auto theft has expired ages ago. In layman’s terms, even if he had stolen the car, there’s nothing the cops could do about it. Even so, it’s good news for the director.

According to a report by TMZ, the police have been trying to get in touch with Tarantino (can you imagine how that conversation would go), but they haven’t been able to get through. It’s looking increasingly likely that the director will learn about his Chevy’s recovery the same way as everyone else – from the news. But hey, in a city where gossip can destroy a career, your classic car being found after two decades is definitely one of the better pieces of news to wake up to.
