Got ready to go to the store this morning and had no car to drive. Sometimes, during the night, someone ripped off my pride and joy! What a sick feeling I have in the bottom of my stomach. It's like losing a family member. WE live in a gated community with cameras, etc, and I really thought my Bird would be safe here. What a laugh. It just shows you that if somebody wants your car bad enough they will find a way to steal it. So, after reporting it to the police, I went to the office and asked to see the entrance and exit photos, hoping to be able to see when and who took the car. It seems the security cameras haven't worked for the past few months. So, it seems I'm out of luck there. Also, I didn't receive much encouragement fro the Sheriff's Dept. The cops said it was probably heading for a strip down for the wheels, stereo, etc. Considering that I don't have theft coverage, I guess I'm just SOL.

Bet it's someone on the security or one of their friends. Too many cars are in unsecured area and not being stolen for one to be stolen from a secured area unless the person knew it wasn't working. I't would be different it it were a $25,000+ car. These cars just aren't hot to most people.

Sideoiler, watch eBay and such for sale of your parts. You may catch the crooks that way.

That really stinks DuWayne. I'm so sorry to hear that.

So if your homeowners association is in charge of your security..... does that mean
you get a refund since they don't have working cameras?

Post up a pic for us if you have one. We'll keep an eye out in the papers/online and see if
we see anything similar for sale here.

Man that sucks, sorry to hear that. If you're paying for a HOA, and they're in charge of security then I'd rail on them.

I'll withhold my opinion on HOA's and just leave it at the fact that I'm looking for a house "out of town" with no HOA.

Also, if you've got a pic I'll keep an eye out as well.

Picture

I hope this link works. I don't do much uploading of photos:

http://i479.photobucket.com/albums/rr154/biggroomer/RaymondsPhotos047.jpg

The odometer just rolled over to 64k. It has the moon-roof, etc, and now has a 4.6 Interceptor emblem on both from fenders. The color is Opalescent and when stolen had no dents or scratches anywhere on the body. The interior was perfect. The plate # is: DO72EH
Vin #: 1FALP62W7SH169536

I believe it to be somewhere in the Sarasota or Brandenton area, but who knows?
Thanks for all the kind and informative replies.

Same thinking here. We're going to be looking for a place where we can house a couple of Rottweilers, fly the AMERICAN flag on a 40' pole, and a permanent mount for my Barrett M82A1 50 caliber that can easily take out the tires or gas tank at 1/2 mile.

I like the way you think . . . though I'd be happy with a German Shepherd and pintle mount for a 1919A4 :)

You know there comes a point where when you catch such crews, that jail makes no sense. Let them dance with "MA DEUCE"!

Yep. I'm 70 and in less than a month will be 71....on Inaugration Day, in fact.
I spoke with the Fl H.P this a.m. and they seem to think that, because of the nearly mint condition of the car, it might be heading out of state. So they've issued a nationwide alert for it. I sure would like to have it back!

Again, thanks to all for your support.

Sorry to hear about your car, but at least the authorities seem to be doing something about it.

I prefer the accuracy of the 50 caliber sniper over the 30 caliber 1919A4. However, I'm thinking about acquiring one of these to use when I walk the Rottweilers:
