Tv self-help guru Dr. Phil Mcgraw is celebrating after getting back behind the wheel of his beloved convertible, which was stolen last year (12).

The '57 Chevy Bel Air was taken from a repair shop and the star feared he would never see it again, but it was recovered during a major Los Angeles Police Department classic car theft investigation.

Thrilled MCGraw invited Entertainment Tonight cameras to film the return of his car, and explained, "When I was in high school, this was the car. I couldn't have afforded it in a million years."

The car, which was one of 13 stolen classic vehicles recovered, has been restored to its former glory.
