Several hot rod cars were reported stolen in Charlotte over the past weekend. The cars were in the city for the Hot Rod Power Tour, an event for car lovers to show off their vehicles to other auto enthusiasts.

Now car enthusiasts from across the country are spreading the word about what happened, hoping someone will spot the stolen cars.

During a video chat from the Atlanta, Georgia area, car owner Garrett Reed explained how he felt when he noticed his special car was missing outside of the Courtyard Marriott Hotel off West W.T. Harris Blvd.

“I thought it was a joke. Like, I really thought it was a joke,” Reed said.
