My S5 Vert was stolen last night...

I'm not sure if this post will help my situation but I awoke this morning to find that my beloved 1991 RX7 convertible had been stolen.

It was slolen from my house near the intersection of Memorial Drive and Covington Hwy in Dekalb County GA.

The car is black with areas of black primer with rear drivers side quarter panel damage and the BBS wheels have been powder coated black.

TAG #: AFL 0187

Although I know its unlikley, please let me know if you happen to see this car.

Thanks!

I would keep a close eye on E-bay in parts. Just put in a search for parts or parts cars within say 200 miles of your place. I have no time for the kinda person that jacks or messes with a persons ride. But, I also know this same kinda person & the people they deal with are FAR from smart. They just think they are slick & dont know how to keep the piehole shut. That makes it on the easy side ta find um with alittle leg work.
Sorry bout your luck.

LOL! Gotta get one

But yea, sucks about the car. I'm over in Marietta and commute daily to the ATL. Not that many FCs here in GA so we'll keep an eye out.

Dude, that sucks about your car. I keep an eye for it as well. Also, like the other guy said, check ebay and craigslist for parts that came from your car. The wheels would probably be an easy one to identify.

That really sucks, sorry to hear about that, I hope you find those theives and kill their asses. We have alot of car thefts down here (mostly civics) and I dont have a garage where I live, so I put the 1st gen in a 10x25 storage unit. I know you cant do that with a daily, but It works.

I wanted to update this thread to let everyone know that my Vert was finally recovered. Its pretty much a TOTAL LOSS. Completley stripped including the engine and transmission so I will have a carcass for sale pretty soon in case anyone is looking for one.

Thanks for your help!

+1 I've known two people to have followed down stolen car leads on IA- one got their car back, totaled- but ended up getting money for it through insurance? not exactly sure what happened but i know he got partial value. The other incident....we'll just leave it at they got what was coming to them.

So keep an eye out on there...Obviously these guys knew what they wanted and have some intention with it- either use it, or, more likely sell the parts...best of luck with it man, being from Atlanta, I've left my cars in numerous shady places and the only misfortune that's come *knock on wood* has been a busted window and some stolen beer & cds....still sorry to hear.
