BURBANK, Calif., Aug. 27 (UPI) -- Dr. Phil's classic 1957 two-door Chevrolet convertible was stolen from an auto shop in Burbank, Calif., gossip Web site TMZ reported Monday.

The 61-year-old host of TV's psychological-help show "Dr. Phil" and a friend had tried unsuccessfully to repair the transmission of his meticulously restored and maintained V8-engine black car with white and silver trim, so he had it flat-bedded to a Burbank repair shop from his Beverly Hills home, the site said.

But a few hours later, Dr. Phil, whose full name is Phillip Calvin McGraw, received a phone call from the shop saying the car, which TMZ said was worth an estimated $100,000, had been stolen.

McGraw reported the theft to police.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ the thieves "smashed a roll-up door at the shop to get at the car," which has a red leather interior.

The Christian Post, which reported on the theft, said McGraw may now "be having some mental issues of his own."
