STOLEN Race Car - Found

Car Found

Greg just me emailed that the car has been found

Seems it was being driven on public roads and a good Samaritan called the police. The car was recovered and the driver arrested.

Minimal damage.

Obviously a great winter driver.

Be on the lookout - Thanks

This is really bizarre. A spec 944 isn't worth much in pieces. It a spec car, meaning no "race" engine, etc. It also isn't rare, so it isn't like it would be shipped out the country. The value is as a race car, and I can't see how someone could pass it off as another car.

Makes you wonder if someone took it for a joy ride, or had something specific that they wanted from it.

I hope you get it back in good shape. Sorry to see this.

The thieves don't know what a spec race car is. They probably think they have stolen a high power race car they can chop and sell.

That's going to be one disappointed thief -- the bicycle cops can out run them....

Hope they get their due justice....

They stole my moped two days ago from a friend. They made it only 5 mins away before ditching it once they figured they couldn't start it.

Thieves are dumb people. Bankers on the other hand....
