SALINAS, Calif. (AP) - A Central California woman has been reunited with her prized classic Ford Mustang 28 years after it was stolen.

The Monterey County Herald reports that Lynda Alsip says she couldn't ask for a better Christmas present than the return of her forest-green 1967 Ford Mustang.

She purchased the car for $800 in 1986 when she was a teen. A year later it was stolen from outside her Salinas apartment.

Police say the car was located at the Salinas' Department of Motor Vehicles in September. A man was trying to register the car after having it for 23 years. Officials are still investigating whether the man knew it was stolen.

Alsip was reunited with the car on Monday and plans to have some work done on it. She'll also finally install her personalized license plates that say "LNDAZ67."
