Good luck in finding it, hopefully in one piece.
Makes me so cranky that others think they can take what does not belong to them.

Sounds well organised.

Notice anyone taking an unusual interest in your car lately?

oh that sux hardcore. So the GPS tracker was disabled? What's the point of them if it's that easy to disable? They should be welded into the chassis and have their own power substation running with uranium.

sorry for your loss, hope you find the car and the boiches who did it.

I hope you get the car back, especially with the work that's gone into the exhaust, good looking setup.

Who would take that much effort to take an ED Turbo - its not worth the time and effort for the risk involved.

If it was a XYGT or something thats value is in the $100,000's then yeah.

All a bit Sus............

Its not just a couple of theives that have stolen it for a joy ride...........

As i have always said if a theif wants your car they will take it.........

Did you have GPS tracking or just a GPS System in it as I was under the impression with GPS Tracking and if its monitored then the GPS trackng company alerts you if you car is being moved after the car has been locked or tilted on to a tow truck?

That's a bit harsh. There's obviously been a lot of work been put into that car, and even if there hadn't been, some people do get quite attached to their cars for sentimental reasons.


I hope you do get your car back, and it's not trashed, but from the effort of the scum involved I think it's gonna be a pretty long shot.

The car has 18ich amg mags with 1 centre cap missing, an exedy sticker on the rear door quarter glasses, power spirit 600x300x105 cooler, purple pearl eb rockercover, a snort perfromance prototype stage 5 turbo manifold with the waste gate fee pipes coming from the inside of the collectors and the waste gate pointed at the side of the car, a master power gt45 with 1.05 rear

I am now offering a $1,000 reward for information leeding to the recovery of the car, my number is 0421704037
In all honesty this car means the world to me and i will go to great lengths to find it, i have lots of friends from the coast to brisbane so if i need 50 car loads of people to walk the streets knocking on doors or even a bloody helicopter to check backyards it just doesn't matter i won't give up and thats a promise, i did 100% of the work on this car many 100's of hours spent

It's NOT the value of the car..
It's the fact he built it with his own hands..
Which is way more value...
Good luck mate...

I know it is always hard to think of, maybe people that know what is under the hood. The fact that it seems some planning was taken. I mean you don't steal a tow truck to go and steal some random ED fairmont. They must have known what was under the hood.

I really hope you find it in one peice, or at the very least find those who took it.
