This is a curious story…
Amber Heard is one of the most infamous names within the media world for her defamation of her former ex-husband and truly mediocre acting career. As the system that allowed her to spread her lies continues to collapse, people are turning on her like crazy. Some of the more prominent figures who provide a stark contrast to her incredible allegations are the witnesses who served on the stand. One such individual is the couple’s former mechanic, who spent a lot of time working on their collection of classic cars. This leads us to the 1968 Ford Mustang, which the actress bought in 2003 with every penny she had, only to see it stolen and scrapped three or four times.
Initially, she described the car as ‘a beautiful piece of junk’ hinting at the various issues the vehicle came with but also her limitless love for the automobile. Despite the abundance of mechanical failures and deteriorating quality, the actress felt the same dedication and compassion that many of us feel towards our project cars. Unfortunately, time and time again, the vehicle was stolen for various reasons. For example, in 2011, she described someone taking her car for a joyride after having parked on the side of the road. Each time the thieves took her car, the police and investigative teams were able to get it back. However, there was one case that made it particularly difficult to find and eventually repair the stolen vehicle.
After what was reportedly the last time her Mustang was taken, the thieves gutted the entire car out for parts and sold the stolen components for profit. This is a particularly troubling thought for most of us car enthusiasts, but the story had a happy ending. Eventually, despite the rough condition, Amber’s father and then-husband Johnny Depp conspired to completely repair her beloved vehicle on the show Overhaulin'. This came as quite a surprise as it was staged to look like another theft had occurred in the episode leaving Amber in shock upon the grand reveal. However, when it was all said and done, the car turned out beautifully, and the internet was treated to the last real tear Ms. Heard would ever show on TV.
