View Full Version : STOLEN Gold VL in Perth

07-03-03, 08:33 PM
I am posting this for a friend in the hope that someone local might have some information relating to this. Though lately with all the car thefts we don't hold much hope.

Neil, would appreciate if you could forward this to any of your email
groups, and perhaps keep in mind anyone seeking 330mm rotors to suit
VB-VP without requiring calipers, etc.

I'd really like to get Clinton's car back for him, and perhaps stop the
!@#$%^s that stole it from getting any more! Ta, Russell

My son Clinton's gold VL sedan, registration 1BEF 308, was stolen from
our house in Sorrento in the early hours of
Saturday morning, 1 March 2003. Insurance will only cover 1/3 of the
cost of the car and equipment, including Mike Penn's old calipers and
pads (Volvo 4-spots with a variety of pads) that were in the back ready
to be fitted this week, and around $2,000 of stereo amp/speakers.

The VL was taken with keys stolen from inside our house after a
break-in. The car is gold in colour, with a very neat paint job, no
badges except a "Fuel injected 5.0" badge on the rear, has gold 16"
Simmons mags, dark window tint (windows are etched with chassis No.), is
lowered, has a single exhaust (rattles loudly at idle), has VN/VT 5.0
fuel injected motor, with engine covers painted to match body colours.

Any one with information please call me on 0411 769 403 as he took a lot
of pride in his car and his driving. This is not fair, for a young man
who has now been driving for 18 months, with a clean record, except
10kph over the day after he got his licence. He's done the right thing
on the road and loves his driving with the HSV Club. He now has no car
but still the debt.

I hope we can find the low lifes that did this, and please all members,
take whatever precautions that you can to protect your vehicle, as it
leaves a really bad taste in your mouth when it happens to you, or
someone you care about.

Thank you, Russell James
