A second-hand car that a woman used to drive to her son’s wedding in Perth has been sold at auction.
The Hyundai Genesis XC60, a white sedan that was sold for $11,000, is a car that has been in the hands of the woman’s son for almost two decades.
The Genesis was stolen while it was parked at the dealership in August 2014.
It is a model that is popular with drivers in Melbourne and around the world, with some describing it as an “every day car”.
“This car is one of my favorite cars,” one of the buyer’s Facebook followers wrote.
“It’s a real steal at $11k,” wrote another.
“The car was stolen when it was put into storage at the RM Airdrie branch, in the car park next to the car dealership,” Ms Dutcher said.
“At that time there was an altercation between a customer and a staff member, and a car was also stolen.”
Ms Dutchers husband, a mechanic, told News.COM.AU the car was originally sold by the family’s father.
“My dad bought it for a lot of money,” he said.
Ms Dukers son, a professional golfer, said he was happy to have the car back.
“I think it’s great,” he told News Australia.
“You can’t go wrong with it.”
Ms Lillis has set up a page for the car, with the goal of raising $100,000.
“If we can raise $100k then we will put it up for auction, it will be up for $15,000 at that point,” she said.
