Stolen "Pulp Fiction" Malibu Recovered

Movies & TV / Comments

Stolen from Quentin Tarantino nearly 20 years ago, the 1964 Chevrolet Malibu convertible from "Pulp Fiction" has been found.

The 1964 Chevrolet Malibu convertible driven by Vincent Vega (John Travolta) in "Pulp Fiction" was stolen back in 1994 while the film was still in production. In fact, it was writer/director Quentin Tarantino's daily driver at the time, but it's now been recovered in Oakland, California. So how was it found? According to San Bernardino daily The Sun, a sheriff's department deputy caught two guys who were apparently stripping the car down on April 18.

This evidently caused some suspicion, so he ran the car's VIN and discovered it was registered in the Oakland area. Although one of the two men insisted he'd owned the car since the 1970s, the deputy was still not convinced, so he contacted the local auto theft task force. Investigators quickly learned the VIN did indeed belong to the car but it hadn't been registered with the state "for several decades." Local detectives then contacted Bay Area authorities and it was revealed that the Malibu had a cloned VIN. Digging deeper, investigators tracked down the stolen car's rightful owner: Quentin Tarantino.

As of now, the individual who was in possession of the Malibu isn't believed to be involved in its 1994 theft, but celeb gossip site TMZ claims the statute of limitations could have already run out, making it possible no one will be charged. It's not known whether the car has been returned to Tarantino, yet but he still owns the Pussy Wagon from "Kill Bill". Just the thought of seeing the two parked side by side is downright awesome.
