Re: Stolen Camaro

Yup...I saw this posted on the First Gen Camaros Facebook group also. I have a multiple day trip coming up next month with the Chevelle. Fortunately, I have another daily driver tagging along and we will use that car to block in the Chevelle at hotels.

Re: Stolen Camaro

I've read of a stolen vette being returned to its owner 40 yrs. later, it was going to be sent os and they found it was stolen 40 yrs earlier, hope this couple doesn't have that long of a wait, the guy that owns the shop that my Malibu's body work was finished in had his restored 67 #s matching camaro stolen about a year and a half ago and they haven't found it yet, IMO there should be a harder punishment for these types of thieves so they cant do it again

Itís a rare occurrence when cars are found years later, thatís why they make the news. Most are cut up, sold overseas or have a different VIN installed.

The bad thing is people are losing their sense of personal responsibility. A general callousness is developing that itís somehow ok when someone with nice things has them stolen or destroyed through no fault of their own. They for some unknown reason deserve it or that itís alright, because they ďcan afford itĒ, whatever that means. Iíve watched several YouTube videos where random people with no provocation will walk up and vandalize exotic cars parked on the street or stopped in traffic often passerbyís within earshot think itís justified and the owner has it coming because he must be a dick, just for owning a car they could never afford. Add that to the push to decriminalize and minimize many property crimes, at least here, in California, it doesnít seem like things are going to get better anytime soon or that they will end well.

Re: Stolen Camaro

I'm not really a gun person, but have friends who are and like to use them. Thieving pricks should be forced to shoot their own hand off in front of the person they stole from. Justice.

I had my malibu in a car show back in 1995. The show was at a large hotel with a dance club in it. I was there with a friend of mine, and my car was alarmed. There were 3 guys walking by my car, and mind it, it's still in the "show ground area" which was roped off. I saw them walking and gave my keys to my friend telling him that when the alarm goes off, to push THIS button to turn it off, and to get into the trunk with the trunk key and get the pipe out of my truck to back me up after these guys mess with my car. He thought I was nuts, and laughed. as soon as he laughed, the skinny punk of the group punched the hood of my car setting off my alarm. My friend looked at me and simply said WE'RE GOING TO TALK LATER ABOUT THIS. and he turned the alarm off and ran to my car's trunk as I lay'd out the punk that did it. His two friends took offense to this and said HE DIDN'T DO ANYTHING, WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM and started to approach me. Once they saw that I wasn't fighting alone anymore and my friend had a nice chunk of old steel pipe in his hand, they backed off and left. No damage to my car, but it does happen!!!!

Re: Stolen Camaro

So what's the best solution to keeping our cars safe when traveling?

I would've thought that the Comfort Suites Fairgrounds near the show would be a good choice, lots of other hot rods and musclecars. I've never seen a hotel offer a security patrolled lot, but maybe it common in bigger cities?

I was reading a thread here the other day about GPS tracking, LoJack, and other anti-thief devices and realized I'm way out of step with keeping my car safe.

Maybe the best defense is really good insurance?

The fair grounds is not in a good neighborhood but I am guessing the thief is not a neighbor. I have seen a vehicle recovered with LoJack. It works but is not cheap. Cops love to have real time data and go on a chase to get that 'Ace' name.

Re: Stolen Camaro

I used to be the event co-ordinator for the annual Pantera (car) event in Las Vegas. Since it's inception, we paid for a guard to watch the area where the cars were parked. Unless you had an event badge, you weren't going to get into the area. The cost was minimal, even in the 2000's, I think it may have been $200 or $300 for our entire 4 day event.

This is what the hotel charged us for one of their guards....

Money well spent...Just my .02....grr
