The Challenger is difficult to miss in standard trim, but this black 2008 model has a soaring rear spoiler and pointy nose reminiscent of the short-lived "Superbird" stock cars of the early 1970s. The car's value is estimated at $200,000, and its claimed top speed is 200 mph, according to the Associated Press.

The automotive shop from which the trailer and car were stolen is located in the 100 block of South D Street, just three blocks from San Bernardino City Hall. Auto theft task force personnel located the trailer, but continue to search for the vehicle.

The car has Wyoming license plates 15GRIZ.
