    HARRISON, NY — A $5,000 reward is being offered after a one-of-a-kind KISS car was stolen from a driveway in Harrison.

    The Mini-Cooper hatchback, autographed by the 1970s shock rockers and designed with the band's logo and other blue/teal Kiss artwork, was originally purchased at an auction benefiting the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. It was stolen Friday between midnight and 6 a.m.

    The reward is for information leading to an arrest and conviction and/or recovery of the vehicle. Anyone with information is asked to call Harrison police at 914-967-5110. All calls will remain confidential.

    Now that was just stupid. If they repaint it, the one of a kind value is gone. Selling to a collector, who only intends to keep it in a private collection, is slim, as anyone that rich could have just bought it. Therefore, if it were my case, which it is not, I would be checking out who bid on it and got beaten out, as well as international car theft rings. Oddly, this could end up falling in the venue of the FBI. :Thumbsup:
