Ever feel that horrible sickness?

36 posts in this topic

Well I walked out of best buy after only being in there for 7 minutes and i walk to my parking spot to erupt in rage, anger, and disbelief. Broken glass and tire marks lined the yellow paint. The Caprice was stolen. I've had stuff stolen and broken into before but this was different. Value means nothing its all personal meaning. I almost shed a tear today. i mean its a 18 year old beater not a new smoking hot Charger SRT8. What sucks is tomorrow morning i leave for some well deserved vacation time. I planned on taking that car too. I cant wait to retire and move away from Michigan I'm tired of it all. it was at Gratiot and 13 mile not even a bad part of Roseville. sigh..

Ever had a car stolen? Is just a gut wrenching pain that is indescribable and i don't wish it on anybody.

Do what you can to track it down man! We had the `86 caravan stolen back in `97. I remember it like it was yesterday. My father and I were sitting on the back porch one night when the Caravan started up, lights came on and drove off. It had an alarm at the time but as luck would have it it was turned off because it was windy that night. My dad went into the kitchen and told her he watched someone drive it off. A few days later the police found it dumped on a dirt road, stripped bare, save for, ironically the stereo (they even stole the alarm). I only hope that one of the pricks had the hatch fall on them when they opened it and let go, because there weren't any struts.

The insurance company tried to convince us to let them keep it, but we refused and had it brought back. We ended up going to the junkyard and getting a whole new interior for the van. It was never quite the same though, as it originally had leather seating whereas the replacement bits were cloth, and due to design changes in later models, the sliding door trim never fit quite right. The important thing was that we got it back though. Don't give up hope, try to hunt it down and get it back.

f@#king no good son(s) of a bitch. Him/they will get whats coming to them, I'm truly sorry to hear this, I hope they find the Caprice, but if not just try to remember the time you had it and that it served you well. I think some pictures are in order here as sort of a tribute to it.

Sorry for your lose.

We've had cars broken into, always in Eugene, Oregon, but never stolen. We have even left a car unlocked with a cell phone on the dash in downtown portland without it being stolen, though it was a 1996 Saturn in 1996, so who would want it.

God Damn it, cappy, this is total bull$h!. Your screen name, your sig, the stories you've shared here... broken. Those animal bastards. I hope against hope you can recover the car. You respected it, and held it up for what it is... American, and unashamed, a real Chevrolet.

I am thinking some street thug will be rolling in it... on 24" rims or something effing horrendous like that there. He does not deserve it. Or it may end up shipped to the Middle East.

I really hope you can recover it before it meets either of those fates. It belongs to you, sir.

Sorry to hear about your car being stolen. It's a hassle to deal with the insurance company, and hard when you are attached to your car. I hope it all works out for you.

Sorry, to hear about this. I've had a couple of cars broken into but never stolen.

Keep us updated on what you find out and if you get your car back.

well as a update. Nothing. Hasn't been found yet. The security camera shows two African Americans walking up bust out the back window then about 3 minutes goes by and the car pulls away. They were slowed don since i had a kill switch that cuts off fuel which is in what a thought a good place. Whats worse is my insurance is going to go up because I'm a higher risk because a PLPD car was stolen. grrr...

If any one sees a 5 sp Beretta, Grand Am, Saturn SC 2, or S10 please let me know. It feels like you lost a family member. i picked up a auto trader and saw a 89 caprice that was in worse shape going for 3250. I wanted to puke. I don't think anything can replace it except maybe a 66 Toronado or 76 Caprice Convertable. Thanks for sharing my pain thought it helps. And i hate to think of it rolling on 22 as soem drug dealer car or my worse fear it going into a demo derby. sigh...

This was at its finest for DF79 request.

I am so sorry to hear about your car. That is a real shame. :nono:

I consider myself lucky that no vehicle I have owned thus far has suffered a break in or theft.

Sorry to hear that Capriceman...you had a beautiful car that was kept in good shape. The thought of some thugs mauling it with tacky wheels and paint makes me cringe. I hope they catch the bastards.

I hope to god they find it. I would likely have a heart attack if either one of the old ones was stolen.

If I were the criminals, I'd want the police to get to me before the owner.

I know the same feeling. My 1992 Buick PA was stolen just weeks after we replaced the transmission (@ 200k). They ended up finding the car and chasing after them. The thieves got off on foot because the police couldn't catch them. My car was trashed.

They might go after the beater cars because it's not grand theft.

Also, if he had a gun in the car it would now be the criminals. I don't think in this situation it's good to have a gun.

well for those that don't know i have a gun on me all the time its just i didn't catch them in the act. I have gone on several trips to Detroit to look for it. It's just hard to look badass in a red Vibe.

I want it back so much right now since it was in great working condition. I even had royal purple in it.

Well right now im think of getting a 91 Saturn SL2 151k on it 4dr 5sp for 1100. for some reason the used car market is on crack i might end up buying a new car but i really dont want to cause a beater is there to take the abuse the new cars are there for weekends and trips.

Cappy: Sorry for your loss. We lost an '85 S-10 blazer that was MINT back in 1990 it had a whopping 28,000 miles on it (mom's car we bought new) Stolen and recovered in NY - caught the perps driving it, and told us to come get the car - then the COPS stripped it. They found out we were coming and moved the truck to another lot where it was subsequently used for parts for the cops in the yard. We put it back to cherry again, and my brother took it to Chicago. Parked it at the Chicago marathon...cops towed it to help with traffic flow after the race - was found stripped and burned. She died with only 34,000 miles on it. Still hurts to this day - I loved that little Blazer. The 2.8 was worthless, but she tried!

I am willing to bet that your perps have an in with junk guys in your area, and the car is old enough to look like it belongs in a yard (sorry) it is heavy enough to be worth a quick $300 at the scales/shredder. Sorry, but I doubt it exists in anything more than fist size chunks at this point. :censored:

Hope you catch the guys and do the same to them! :pokeowned:

What about the west side of Detroit, Cap?

Around outer dr, I heard that they nailed A bunch of morons who were taking cars from the Burbs...

I'll try to talk to some people....
