VLT stolen and burnt out - keep an eye out for parts
As you've probably already heard, this car:

was stolen on Monday 2nd June in the Hobart area, and found like this:

last night.

Unlike most cars stolen and burnt out down here, they actually bothered to strip it - so if everyone could keep their eyes out for parts, and contact Brett if you hear of anything: 0400 182 738

Parts on the car:

Standard T3, Internal Gate & Exhaust/Turbo Inlet Manifold
Bleed Valve - Running 10psi atm
17 x 7 1/2 Alloys, with good 235/45's all round
5 Spd Manual
New Woodgrain Steering Wheel
Front Mount {600 x 300 x 75}
Boost/Temp Gauges

That sucks balls. Would be nice if the thieves were caught and you given an hour in a locked room with them. Keep on the lookout for parts for a few months, they'll probably hold them until things "die down" then try to move them. Or keep an eye out for a VL with new bits, some people are stupid enough to put stolen things on show not long after doing the deed.

What a sad sight, would bring a few tears to my eyes if it were calais. Interesting the timing cover is still intact, aren't they plastic too? Not sure, my last 6cyl VL was 4 years ago.

man thats absolutely bull ****, there has been alot of cars down hobart way that have been getting stolen stripped then burnt out in the last twelve months, happen to one of my mates cars, its a real kick in the ass when some drop kick has nothing better to do than to do that to some ones pride and joy, hope the police track these pricks down.

I was reading in the paper, I think it might have been yesterday, that they are going to start going over burnt out cars with finer detail - apparently they are aware people are burning them out to try and get rid of DNA, but the article said the police are saying that not all DNA is destroyed in fire.

Mind you though, they also said that the number of cars being burnt out has not increased this year.

But who knows, maybe if they do this they might actually start catching the scum...

LETHAL 02-07-08 23:06

oh ok, would be good to find out names of involved people...

thats the reason why they burn them tho, simply due to DNA... FKERS

WPNVLT 16-07-08 18:49
