Stolen 90..Staines

When I pulled the curtains this morning I realised my 1987 90 van had been
stolen. Worse still, it had most of my gardening tools in the back which
although well worn will cost a lot to replace.
Neighbour says he heard something start between midnight and 1.am but just
thought it another van down the road.
No broken glass etc so probably a professional job.
Just in case, it's grey with a white roof, with silver (peeling to white)
wheels and BFG AT's and it's a bit muddy.
Staines area.

Buggerit - that stinks. why any scrot wants to nick an 18yo l/r van is
beyond me. They're slow, noisy have no street cred [1] and they'll get
tuppence for it.

The major impact is the loss suffered by the owner - and personally I am
appalled at any theft which removes a mans means to earn a living.

out in the front yard most of the day - little chance, but I'll keep an eye

[1] except amongst folk we'd like to think are above that behaviour.

Neighbour says he's sure it was there when he went to work at 5am, so stolen
between 5 and 8am.
Costed the garden tools etc at 726 to replace. !!! (plus a pair of the
wife's designer glasses! Oops) Sad thing is they will probably all get
dumped as most are well used or painted to make them ID'able.

It's dark grey with a very white roof. Paint bubbling on the drivers door
and on the back where there was some rust showing on the steel bits that
hold the ally bits together and are galvanised on the S111. Has chequer
plate along the bottom of both sides one is slightly bent where it fell off
a jack. Bonnet pull replaced by a Paddocks cable and needs resetting (pulls
right out). New Webber carb. Head lining is beige as prev owner smoked and I
can't get it clean and the Black PVC seats have fag burns in them too. Full
set of original tools behind the seats and only 48,800 miles from new.
So how do I replace that with what I'm likely to get from the insurance for
a 1987 vehicle?

Oh, and a Happy Christmas to whoever stole it, you've ruined mine!

Thank God I didn't sell the S111 yet.

Well I loved it, and it was a vast improvement on the S111. Probably broken
up for spares (or wanted for some ram raiding). I'm convinced it must have
been stolen to order/ for a purpose as I can't see a joy rider etc wanting
it.

Not quite that bad, our gardening is more of a hobby that keeps us fit, but
the tools etc will cost 726 to replace and when I tell the insurance Co the
full cost and that there was a pair of the wifes designer glasses on board
as well I bet they start walking backwards.

THAT is the point - for us, we love our noisy, crude, slow 101s too. Our
commiserations Bob. I'd never have guessed this happens in Runnymede -
some Scrote from Slough ?

Errr, just come home to a message on the answerphone to say it's been found.
Rang them to be told that it was found in Slough because it was reported as
insecure (the window was open). It's now in a pound until Tuesday or
Wednesday because of Christmas, and I heard the driver tell the operator it
was OK as far as he could tell and there was stuff still in the back. We
shall see.
Looks like someone wanted to get home to Slough late Sunday night/early
Monday morning.

If it is OK I'll have to get an alarm/immobiliser, anyone know how much they
cost and which is the best?

I already had an independent immobiliser fitted to my 1996 90 when purchased
but to add a little more security I added a bloody loud siren type alarm
made by 'Sigma' covers the doors and interior on sensors includes two
remotes, a basic package, fitted for 160.
