Default Stolen GT in WA

Hi all, I was asked if I could post this here since I am a member and the other person isn't. Yeah they could have joined themselves but we all know how people jump on newbies posting things like this without a post count.

Hopefully someone will be able to help find this car. Fingers crossed anyway.
Anyway here is the info.

A White XB Falcon GT Sedan has been stolen from a factory unit in Welshpool, Western Australia over the weekend. It has black trim and Dragway wheels.

Chassis No. JG33 PA56939 and Sido of 587205


If you hear anything can you get in touch with the Falcon GT Club of WA or the West Australian Police


If you have any questions, post them up or send them via PM and I will ask for you. Otherwise contact the club mentioned above and I'm sure someone there will be able to answer anything you might wish to know.

Unhappy Gold Xd Wagon Stolen

This is just a general Thread in search of my beloved Gold XD wagon. It was stolen on Monday 17th from Hervey Bay, later that afternoon it had done a drive through at the Morayfield Service Station on the Bruce Highway. I just had all the engine work completed and put in a Sports dash and Sports steering wheel, also the the rear guards have just had the metal replaced the repairs have not been finished no primer just welded on and bogged over. I was about to get the rego transfered to QLD as it still has the Vic plates on it SOJ236. There are stickers on the rear window that make it stand out. 1) I (heart) my farcan ford 2) Kiss my Ass 3) Tickle this Holden Boy (with a picture of elmo) Please I have a feeling she is heading to Victoria and need to get the word out to find her, Life is not the same without my Ford. The police don't do anything if the car is insured, they just tell me I have to wait for a ramdom licence plate check to pick up that it is stolen. To every Ford Lover out there "If you see her let me know" cindy31964@bigpond.com.

Default Stolen Gold Xd Wagon

My XD Wagon was stolen from Hervey Bay's Marina on the 17th of Feb, it had done a drive through at the Morayfield service station on the Bruce Highway at around 4.30 that afternoon.
What makes my car stand out from the rest :
Stickers on the rear window.
1) Kiss my Ass
2) I (heart) love my farcan ford
3) Tickle this holden boy (Elmo)
The car itself is gold, black carseat covers with gold gecko's, 2 inch lowered, 245's on the back and 225's on the front - 12 slotter rims and even the spare which sits in the rear window on the drivers side. Roof racks, and the rear guards have just had the lower sections replaced, not yet sanded back or painted.
I think she is on her way to Melbourne as the plates are Victorian, SOJ 236.
Engine No. JG31WL41138C. Has the original 3.3 motor and is Duel fuel.
I am willing to pay a reward for her return, I just want my car back unharmed.

Smile Xd Ford Found

Just to let you all know that my Gold XD Wagon was recovered.
I had gone into the police station to cancel the rego when the officer told me that my car had been recovered 5 days earlier (why was I not told, who knows). What happen to her : My grandsons car seat missing, 12 slotters, stereo and amp were removed, she was left on the side of the road sitting on 3 dodgy wheels and full of rubbish, it is still unknown if the engine will start. She is on her way back home and will arrive on Sunday.
To anyone that has a car stolen my advice apart from putting in as much security as possible if you do get it back so it doesn't happen again (Lock nuts are not worth wasting your money on). Also make sure you hound the police, had I kept ringing them (don't wait for them to call you) I would have found out sooner that it had been recovered, I have lost 5 days of precious time and my hire car goes back on Tuesday and I have 2 days to see if my always reliable ford will be running so I can get to work.
I have to admit I was one of the lucky ones, not to have it burnt out or smashed up. The insurance is paying me out and I get to keep her at my own expense of getting her towed home from Redcliffe to Hervey Bay and buying her back from the insurance company.
I will post pictures of her as soon as I can so you can all see why I love my farcan ford.

I'm confused.

Your id says you are from Melbourne, yet from reading your story I'm assuming that the car was stolen in Queensland.

If your car was recovered in Queensland, it is the Queensland coppers responsibility to contact you.

If you walked into a Police Station in another state, they would have checked your reg and discovered it was recovered thereby telling you.

In Victoria, the first point of call at a stolen vehicle recovery is contact the owner. Whether it be 3am or whenever, we'll wake you up. We need to know what you want us to do with the car. If it gets towed it is at your expense. If you want us to secure it as much as we can and leave it with the possibility of being re-stolen, that's your call.
