Stolen Car

Not mine (thank God)

'88 turbo S silver rose/ funky burgundy plaid interior

VIN: WP0AA2952JN151213

TX plate: RB6JJ or H41VKJ

Belongs to a nice guy.

I doubt posting it will do any good, but you just never know where stuff will turn up.

I hate thieves.

Thanks for looking guys.

Yep.

Stolen from the west side. It's been about 3-4 weeks, so I figured if it was heisted for a simple joyride it would've turned up by now. Also thought if it was stripped it also would have been found.

It's not like it's a three year old silver Honda Accord. It's not like there's a bazillion of these things out there. It should stand out. Sadly, the cops just provide you with a case number, and if it turns up, well, then they know who to call.

I'd like to think the car is too unique for someone to get away with. I hope it's just parked somewhere, and the right pair of eyes need to see it.

I don't know what you guys use for alarms. Mine is silent. You don't know you've tripped it, but the car just will not start. Couldn't tell you the number of times it's caught me in my own driveway.

So I was trying to think of how to keep mine from getting stolen, living in downtown cincy, and then it hit me. When I get around to upgrading to a nice racy steering wheel, pay the extra $60 for the quick release feature. With no wheel, it would be pretty hard to drive away. Am I missing something or would this work?

Are you talking about the stock alarm? It's supposed to honk the horn really f'ing loud when a door or the rear hatch is opened.

What a shame some low-lifes stole a Turbo S. I hope it turns up somewhere.

I see a problem with just a quick release wheel. A pair of vice grips would work fine to get the car somewhere. Ofcourse it'd be a nice, and chanses are fairly effective deterrant however.

I've got an aftermarket alarm. It had a horn, but I optioned for the horn-delete with a pair of wire cutters. That engine bay is too crowded as it is.

It's a mean one. Even with the key fob it doesn't like to reactivate. My car has an attitude.

Wellp, as i say to my dad... "Drive it like you stole it".

...Of course, you can't if it has a factory alarm system.

Thanks,

It had a PCA sticker to the left of the license plate. It belongs to the VP of our PCA region.
