At long last, TV therapist Dr. Phil (McGraw) has his beloved 1957 Chevy Bel Air back. The classic ride was heisted from a Burbank auto repair shop back in August, and was found by a special taskforce created to investigate classic car theft rings in L.A. County.

The vehicle has "minor body damage and is in good condition," according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The LASD elaborate:

Since the theft of Dr. Phil’ McGraw’s classic 1957 Chevy Bel Air, detectives have been conducting covert operations and inspections of businesses throughout the County. Detectives have recovered and identified fourteen stolen classic vehicles where the identifying numbers had been switched to avoid being identified as stolen. Five additional classic vehicles are still in the process of being identified. Numerous suspects have been arrested and the investigation is ongoing.
