Who knew Dr. Phil was a car collector? The celebrity pop psychologist this week had his classic ’57 Chevy stolen from a car shop where it was being repaired. TMZ is reporting that the car was in the Burbank repair shop having transmission work done.

TMZ states that the car, a two-door convertible ’57 Chevy, is worth $100,000. Though similar to the car in the image to the right, Dr. Phil’s car is black with white and silver trim and a red leather interior. The car thieves smashed through a roll-up door to get inside the shop. Dr. Phil called police, and they are handling the theft, as much as the Burbank police can, I suppose.

In a remarkable collision of Today’s top stories, Terrell Owens, who was just released into free agency by the Seattle Seahawks, made an embarrassing appearance on Dr. Phil’s show. Owens was confronted by the mothers of some of his children with allegations that he skipped out on child support payments and was generally absent from the lives of his progeny.

Dr. Phil, whose full name is Phillip Calvin McGraw, has not commented publicly on the theft. The latest blog post on the Dr. Phil blog is by his wife Robin, who praises the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority for its charity work.

    It’s bad enough that Dr.Phil had a prized possession stolen.
    But, the idiot that reported this story suggested that the Police Department,(Burbank),was inept or incapable of handling the crime and
    finding the thieves. Nothing could be further from the truth.
    Burbank PD is ranked amongst the BEST in the United States.

    Dr.Phil, rest assurred…the Burbank Police Department is the best you’ll find. If anyone can solve this, they will.
    (Jay Leno has MILLIONS of dollars worth of collectable cars, and they are all in BURBANK!

    Next time asshole………..do your home-work before you knock our city and our outstanding Police Force in a poorly written article.

    57 CHEVY 210 4 DOOR SEDAN is not worth 100,000. I think he wants the insurance money.

    When DR. Phil gets his car back it will be changed. Of course it will have to want to change.
