    They stripped it. Tore it to pieces.

    Delmer Jefferson of Des Moines got his clown car back this week, nearly two months after the miniature, flame-emblazoned tow truck vanished - trailer and all - from a parking lot at the Za-Ga-Zig Shrine in Altoona.

    A Shriner clown for 34 years, Jefferson had been confident that someone would find his pride and joy and return it. After all, he reasoned, what would thieves do with a clown car?

    They ruined it. Trashed it.

    "I didn't recognize it," said Jefferson, after a friend brought him the remains. "The seat is still there, but that's about it."

    The friend, Jefferson said, didn't think fast enough when a man in a truck pulled up and asked if he wanted to make a trade for some scrap mater- ial.

    But the friend had a hunch he was looking at the former clown car, so he made the trade and then broke the news to Jefferson.
