The amazing (stolen) underground car
From our original story, written way back in 1978:

It was about a week ago that Sgts. Joe Sabas and Lenny Carroll of the Lennox sheriff’s substation were flagged down by some children outside a house at 1137 W. 119th St.
The youngsters had been playing in the backyard of the home, digging in the mud, when they found something unusual just below the surface. They told Sabas and Carroll it felt like the roof of a car.
On Tuesday, the two detectives, aided by a skip-loader and some helpers with shovels, returned to the home and found out just how unusual their discovery was.
What the men uncovered was a green, 1974 Ferrari–a car worth at least $18,000 new.
