I’m pleased that this theme is an ongoing thing on the blog but unfortunately basic details of a stolen vehicle is not enough to catch these thieving bastards.

We need to know such details as,
Upholstery colour & design.
Engine details: 6-cyl, 4-cyl any modifications etc.
Gearbox & axle types.
Suspension: standard, konis spax etc.
Plus any other details that may be relevant.

It’s obvious these lowlife are not going to sell a complete car because of the VIN, They are however going to resell the “secondhand” parts because as Capris become rarer the sale of parts will become more lucrative.

It’s important to pool knowledge and ideas because just one part discovered could lead to the arrest and jail for the light-fingered, devious, pilfering scum.

And, just to rock the boat: (I think I’ll leave to someone else to work out what I was going to write.)

Keep an eye on yours over the winter months and keep up with the security items.

Jesus this is literally 15 min's from where I live, time to tighten up on the security I think.

Sadly this recent theft also proves that it's not just 3 litres and 2.8s/Brookies their after.. the smaller engine Capri's also now seem to be on the menu.

Hope the lady gets her car back 🙏
