If it was an insurance job, I doubt the guy would leave his NEW camaro on the floor.


either way, I don't know why people are surprised at all. This kind of thing happens every single day. Nothing new. Shit Happens, atleast the car was still there.

Geez people, just read the thread. The guy works for GM and this Camaro is part of the Captured Test Fleet program. It is insured and owned by GM.

Aye just take my advice and get the pager. People don't pay attention to sirens going off. I caugt someone already with the pager system. Went outside and some idiots legs where sticking out my truck window, he broke the window and was trying to pry the deck out.

He ran and I didn't go after him. Didn't even need to draw pistol he just bolted when I came outside.

But that pager woke me at at 3 AM.

a tear came to my eye when I seen this. Seems they were some real pros. At least they were not some punk kids who would have done a lot more damage taking those wheels.

LOL.... Maybe it was the wheel supplier who didn't want to go through bankrupcy court to get paid! Be careful- you may go out tomorrow and find your bumper or mufflers gone.

I've seen a 69 camaro with electric hooked to it up in INDY works great but hard to keep clean from the dead bugs.

Well first, I arranged for Number 3 to be taken back to our Service Technology Garage at the Warren Tech Center. Not to plug anyone but Von's towing, in the photo below took great care with the car. The owner actually came out to help which is why you see two trucks.

It turns out the thieves damaged the front fascia when jacking from odd points using jacks from 4 different manufacturers. The Range Rover jack was badly bent so it appears the intent may have been to leave the car on the jacks and it simply fell off.

No word on any other damage, but they said for sure not this week and probably more like two weeks out of commision. By that point Number 3 will have served the 6 month rotation in the CTF.

So Number 3 may finish the season on Injured Reserve. Lets hope for a quick comeback.

So now I have this loaner car, an Impala SS, so I'm thinking am I disaster proof or would these idiots jack Impala SS wheels? Oh well, garage tonight, but I am feeling somehow like I let them win if I can't even park a car in my own driveway.

Nice Photoshops by the way.

Five mother-effing hundred is all I have to say to you for even suggesting that.

Get a life before you accuse good people of things they didn't do, and better yet, don't accuse people before you even get to know them.

Absolutely.
The psychology behind theft is pretty dark.

This isn't a case a la "Le Miserables".

Hope you're made whole and get past this.

Yes, but if you look close the front fascia paint color doesn't match the hood.
