John Travolta says he wasn”t too traumatized when some crook stole — and then chopped up — his rare 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280 SL … telling us, “I”m not that attached to material stuff.”
Translation: I can buy another one.
Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston were leaving dinner at Katsu-Ya in Brentwood this weekend when we asked about the ill-fated vintage car … which was stolen last year while the actor was car shopping for Jaguars in Santa Monica.
Cops eventually tracked the car down to a nearby chop shop … where it had already been stripped for parts. The two guys behind the auto-theft — Michael Green and D.L. Rayford … both confessed and were sentenced to prison time.
Travolta says the whole ordeal was “terrible” — but fortunately, he”s got more cars … including the classic Jaguar the couple zipped off in that night.
