WHEELER Dealers host Mike Brewer has offered a £5,000 reward to anyone who can return his Ford Fiesta Mk1 after it went missing earlier this year.
The classic car was set to be the centrepiece at the Motorist car show in Leeds back in June.
However, during the early hours before the event, the classic 1979 Mk 1 Ford Fiesta 1300S went missing from the car park of the hotel they’re staying at in Knottingley Road, Pontefract, despite being in a covered trailer.
Still missing months later, Wheeler Dealers presenter Mike Brewer has offered a £5,000 reward for its safe return.
The TV star even admitted he was not looking to prosecute anyone responsible for the car going missing. He just wants it back.
Mike, 59, told Express.co.uk: “I’m not not going to prosecute anyone, nor is Elvis (other host Marc Priestley).

"We will ask, please, beg, we have still got the key to the car.
“All we are asking for is to park the car on a corner somewhere, tell us where it is and I will go and get the car and I don’t know how but we will give £5,000 cash to anyone who tells us where the car is.
“I will drop that in a bin, I will send that to a PO BOX, I don’t care how it happens. It will be one of those Hollywood movie endings.
“Whatever someone wants me to do, I don’t care. I will go into a crowded pub, give someone £5,000 if someone gives me the car.
