Wow, that's ridiculous. Was this car on ebay recently? Looks familiar.

Any more details/pictures? Auto, manual, anything special?

FOUND!

I have no other info except that they probably took the wheels (good thing I didn't put the longchamps on yet!) but I don't know any more about it right now. Was found on a major road. I have no doubt that the attention online had a significant part to play in their decision to dump it. Thanks so much!!!

Yay!!

Glad to hear it. There wasn't much they could have wanted anyway with such a high profile car.

Thanks guys! I'd like to say that I want to return the favor... but then that would imply your cars would be stolen! :) No bueno!

I've decided to relax on the Corona for a bit... keep it safe and such... and finish the mechanicals on my Starlet. Then I can decide if I should sell my daily driver and restore the Corona. Decision decisions.

Thanks again!

So glad you got her back, I live in North Seattle and loved driving by and seeing her perched up high in her nest. bold thieves. Anyone have a practical solution to this problem, I often look outside my place in the morning and expect a car or parts might be gone and unfortunately I wont be to surprised if it did happen, but I will be both sad and disappointed in people. what works? The club, boots, removable steering wheel??? what a hassle.
We should have a N. end meet this summer. see what comes out of the woodwork...
