Tarantino's stolen Pulp Fiction car recovered

While we might have spent the majority of Pulp Fiction marvelling at Quentin Tarantino's razor-sharp dialogue, we also spent a good portion of the film desperately wanting to own the infamous red Chevy, driven by John Travolta in some key scenes.

Seems like we weren't the only ones. The car was stolen from outside Tarantino's home 17 years ago and has been missing ever since.

But last week, a man was arrested after police suspected him of classic car theft in California. After they investigated the man's home, they then discovered the iconic red Chevy.

Apparently, the car's serial number had been changed, allowing it to avoid detection for all this time. Frustratingly, the man won't be arrested for stealing the car though, as the statute of limitations on auto theft has run out.

You might remember the car being used during John Travolta and Uma Thurman's 'date' before it was later crashed into Eric Stoltz's house.
