:( Sorry to hear about your T/A.

I've read numerous stories of people getting their prized automobiles stolen, and they reappear a little while longer either at a car show, on EBAY, and also, unfortunately, stripped, or lost forever.

I hope yours shows up and you're able to get it back. And the SOB that stole it apprehended and punished.

Seeing as it was stolen out of your garage, I wonder if it's someone in your neighborhood who has seen the car? It would seem to me the person who stole it knew about the car.

Hope you get it back asap. I'll post your information on a couple of other sites I frequent.

Good luck.

You're going to have to give us some more info.

1. Color (Int/Ext)-special paint, etc. stripes?
2. List any damage on veh (if any at all...I know it's a show car, but I gotta ask). And if it's a show car, list obvious visual mods we would recognize.
3. Stickers/decals on body/windows?
4. Leather int, right?
5. WS6 hood?

Got the C5 wheels, but get as descriptive as you can for us. I take notice of all the 4th Gens I see...whether it be Camaro or Trans Am. I usually run all of them I see as well...various reasons. And...are we looking for an Arkansas plate? Do you feel comfortable giving the plate # on the site? That'll help too.

Was your home burglarized as well? In other words, what was the main reason they stole your car. Did they break into your home ransacking it and stealing stuff only to run across your keys and say, "Hey...we got a TA." Or, did they break in, skip over all your valuables and go straight to the garage to get the car.

If they left the house alone and just took the car, I'd imagine it's being parted out...stripped. If they ransacked the house and stole other stuff, I'd tend to feel a little bit better that the TA was just part of the goodies stolen. Then, the TA would probably end up somewhere in a parking lot where there's a lot of traffic (Wal-Mart, restaurant, etc.). People hardly ever notice a car that's parked in a high traffic area. People do tend to notice the car that's been parked in the same spot on the side of a random building for a few days.

Also, stupid question, but I have to make sure...You did make the burglary report to your home and the theft of vehicle report, correct? It's got to be entered into TCIC/NCIC in order for any officer to verify it's stolen.

Most stolen cars usually tend to show up w/in 2 weeks. Usually, it's because someone noticed it sitting somewhere for a few days, check it out, and see something wrong. They'll call police and the disp will run it finding it's been stolen. They'll send someone out who verifies it's stolen and then call you to let you know they found it.

They had to have the keys. It is a pain in the ass to bypass the passkey system in order to get the thing started. I had the key itself go bad on my old Formula and never really could get it bypassed. I want to say that it involves pulling the steering column apart. So whoever took your car, did it with the keys. Also I doubt they hung onto it for long. A CETA is an instantly recognizable car. You can't fly under the radar in a bright yellow Trans Am for long. I'm really sorry to hear about this. As a fellow Trans Am owner I feel your pain. Good luck in getting it back.

i made a report as soon as i got home.it's ncic v901194454,they took nothing but the ta, they did however come back 2 weeks later and tried to break into my shop, i had it tied into my house alarm and it scared them off.the carfax shows a loss because the police entered it wrong in the system.the pic above shows the oem rims, they were not on vehicle at time.i have my property fenced in and had a chain/lock on gate,they cut it with bolt cutters and busted back window in back of house. in daylight.i had it at the lsx shootout in memphis 2 weekends prior to this and a show the previous weekend it was stolen.i had to have been watched.the lady that lives behind me told me she had been broken in as well so it leads me to believe it wasn't anyone in particular i know.

Only if they don't cause physical harm or endanger the person in any way.

Aw dang, so no shotgun to the feet booby trap to someone who tried to open the car door? lol That mofo aint getting away from my house in 1 piece.

I will be on the lookout and I'm sorry about your loss. Hopefully it will become a "found". Getting something stolen is the worst feeling in the world.
