frown Stolen XR8 or Fairmont Found

Guys on the weekend we went for a drive through Thawa pine Forrest South of Canberra for a bit of a bush bash with me mates Car to see a shit load of stolen cars he knows about in the Forrest.

There must be about 15 cars we spotted all in the one location but most burnt out when dumped.

My mate told me there was on the 3/7/03 a EF V8 with a Winsor Engine complete he was not shore if it was an XR8 or Fairmont, I had a look at it to find on the day we went there again which was 5/07/03 that the pricks burnt it out. By the remains of it the colour was Silver with Tickford Factory XR6-XR8 rims and very expensive directional tyres to suit which had left behind some bottoms of them, there is not to much to be seen any more looks to be an insurance Job as this car was packed out for performance.

So if you know of anyone who's missing there car.

What a shame...
I remember reading some statistics about theft - a car that is under finance was heaps more likely to be found 'burnt out' after it was reported stolen
Funny that...

Re: Stolen XR8 or Fairmont Found

Well the Engine does look to be ok but the top inlet is melted away with big holes through it,
who knows it maybe ok but may take some time to take apart.
The heads will be ok with block thats about it.
It has full headers on it and diff maybe ok also.

Re: Stolen XR8 or Fairmont Found

I'd be looking at getting some gear off it if I were you and nobody wanted it, If it's been there for a while why not.even if it is only a short block.

frown To Find

To find - Head towards Tharwa and over the Tharwa Bridge and keep on the same road towards the old tracking stations, you will drive over a one lane little bridge and past a area one the left which is the National Parks info centre, keep going, its about another 2 kms down this main road, looks to your left there will be a Dirt Road call Tharwa Road and head down here and over a another little bridge, keep going all the way up this road into the hills of the pine Forrest, when your on the top of this hilly clime keep an eye out on you "left" on the corner of the road you are on now, there will be a road there is only one road here so look at of it you cant miss it, head down this road and your there right in front of you there should be about 7 dumped cars with the V8 Ford.
