was stolen from Mt Gravatt, Garden City shopping centre sometime between 10.25 and 12.45 last night (friday night). Bastards took it all, including 30 CDs, my school text books etc etc. ****en lowlife scum!
Rego is 477FWW, silver slate 1990 EA Falcon series 2. 4spd auto. Had black mags with a chrome ring around the outside. Big REAL MEN SMOKE RUBBER sticker across back window, blue writing. It'll attract some attention driving around due to extractors and exhaust.......and i only just got them a coupla weeks ago!
Its insured for market value, lucky stereo is covered, but im back to scratch with mods.....am without a car for at least 28days.......im doubting it will get recovered, had lots of good parts in it. Damn
Am already thinking about ED XR6, EB Fairmont Ghia, EA spack 5 speed, or maybe EF....we'll see what the insurance company comes up with i spose.
And if i ever catch the guy/s that did it, i can confindently say their testicles will become MY personal property......
what a bummer..ill keep a lookout for it..insurance companies sometimes take ages to pay up and don't always pay up the full amount..if you do recover it let us know..ill run the car off the road with the work truck if i see it
Sorry to hear it mate, it must suck big time getting your car stolen.
Was it your first car? If it was, damn..
All those CD's, and text books, geez that'll cost you a fortune to get back, well the textbooks anyway, I can't imagine you'd buy every single CD again.
NZ, i'm really complacent about my EA too, I just leave it out on the street at night, with my H/U still connected with about $2000 worth of car audio just sitting in there too, with my CD's and everything. I know I should be more vigilant, and I will be now, no doubt.
What kind of stereo did you have in your EA sikEA?
thats shit house hey, i gues its a minor blessing , since you were thinken of offing it any ways, shame about personal stuff thats were the real worrie is..
some time ago the my Falcon with fairmont bages was taken from my mate whorm use to own it. It was taken at a shopping center too, got me stuffed why it was not just put on the scap heap then , but the insurance guys insisted it would have to be fixed,
new dash facer where cd play was .
new cd player
new ingnition lock and keys
new under dash stuff and wiring
new door lock and door barrel and repair and paint drivers door.
new tyres and alloy wheels as all Four where flogged .
repairs to sill panels as they did not leave it on stands, and odds and ends as the towie was not nice about dragging it about.
got me stuffed , market value was well and truly doubled on repairs .
Not foggeting the Auto box dropped out on to te road a month after it was put back on the road after repairs were done.
No way that was part and parcel the insurance company says , remeber its an old car.
hey what do you do .
tuff going , chine up and put a kill swich in the next one.
