Nine stolen vintage vehicles are tracked down with the help of social media users

Nine stolen vintage vehicles have been tracked down with the help of social media users after a classic car company reported 19 missing from their Florida warehouse. 

The 19 classic cars were stolen from the Orlando Classic Cars garage warehouse after thieves broke in on Monday morning. 

Since Monday, the company said they have recovered nine vehicles, including a 1962 Chevrolet convertible and a 1956 Oldsmobile Super 88, five of which were 'recovered directly as a result' of a Facebook post.
