STOLEN: 1993 RX7 R1, Brilliant black, many modifications

Sometime between approx. 5pm on 10/18 & 10am on 10/19 my car was stolen along with the trailer it was in and the truck that the trailer was hooked up to from Union City, CA where it was to have the trans rebuilt, a new clutch put in, and a flex fuel tune setup (turbo was rebuilt as well, blew on the dyno). The car has fresh black paint (approx 20 months now and less than 1k miles), single turbo (precision 6265 with a 90 degree elbow welded on to accomodate the engine bay), Greddy FMIC, Thermal Dynamics catback (old school, not terribly common anymore). AEM Series 1 ECU, sparco steering wheel w/quick release hub, Precision 46 mm wastegate, HKX SSQV "black" BOV, Xcessive LIM, injector dynamics 2000cc secondaries, 1000cc primaries, fuel lab FPR, lowering springs (unknown brand), missing the front r1 lip, has the rear r1 spoiler. Driver side bolster on the seat is pretty worn, no floor mats. Set #24 of the Theory/Sakebomb tails, 17x9 CCW classics all around, 235s up front and 275s out back. Dan Chadwick & Eric & Carter Thompson designed and produced diff brace and idler pulley. in-line fuel filter, twin walboro 255 in-tank pumps. Tons of stuff. Rich(Goodfella) reminded me I should post here (haven't been that active in a while). I would love to get the car back but have all but given up hope. I'm offering a $100 reward for info leading to the car, and $1000 if you find the car itself. Car has the University of Nebraska plate that reads APX BMR or TVU 130 on it, or did when it was stolen. VIN JM1FD3319P0201328



You can see how the turbo was modified here and the oil in the ports that necessitated the rebuild.




Shiny new paint, freshly polished and ceramic coated.

If anyone wants to share these posts, it may help as well. Just remove the space between dot & com to get the link. The forum doesn't like them for whatever reason.

Original post. There are some pics of the truck & trailer here too.

Trailer was found, trashed, in Oakland approx 10 days after it was stolen. No word on the car or truck.

My coworkers post (she's got more reach than I have).

Also, I don't give a **** about your opinions of Don. I trust him with my car and have for years and have never had an issue with him. He's hurting from this as well. I have no reason to suspect he has anything to do with the theft outside of the obvious so I'll ask an admin to keep this clean if needed.

I'll be on the lookout for your FD. Not too many FD's around here but if the trailer was found and ditched in Oakland, i can only assume there is a garage near by that they may have stored it. I'll keep a lookout though.

I figure it's probably in pieces by now honestly. But yeah, that and the truck are probably in a garage/shop/warehouse being picked clean.

I'll let a couple of my buddies know as well to keep a look out for it as well as scour craigslist for parts that could be yours.

I really appreciate it. I figure the turbo, taillights, and wheels will be easiest to ID. Although I bet the wheels will go to a pawn shop. Probably already have.

Don Walker's shop. I think it was Grid1 or something like that. He retired last spring but was wrapping up my car after he closed his doors.

Sorry about your misfortune and hope that things turn out for you.

The comment about threads being deleted:
Why in God's name would the MODS be wiping threads about Scammers?..
Think about it.
I,as one of the many Volunteers, am here to PROTECT the WHOLE RX7 community from this kind of activity,so The reference of "deleting threads" Is totally uncalled or and has NO Merit what so ever.
Ya,we may Delete threads BUT we wipe threads that pertain to Garbage..At times NEW posts by Scammers that are trying to seek NEW accounts but under a different name.That action gets Wiped...FAST.
Don Walker got Threads wiped and accounts closed under different names.
Is that "befriending him"?..NO..it is Protecting YOU and others from HIM.

*I'm sorry I had to post that in this thread and apologize to the OP of this Thread..But Your comment just plain PISSED ME OFF.
..actually it should have been WIPED as it is Pure Garbage that is within the scope we look for to Delete..
BUT it was something that needed to be addressed,POSTED and Announced to the whole RX7 Community.

Again to the OP..I hope things get resolved.

hope things turn out better than worse, but yes, i would make a note to the police that Don wasn't the most honest of people and maybe they should start by looking at him.

No offense Styx, but i have posted 2 threads pertaining to don walker on this site, both of which were deleted. I was told it didn't happen on this site, so it doesn't need to be posted on this site. I strongly disagree with that, for this exact reason today. I was trying to make people informed about this guy.

Kyle, sorry to hear about this. Couple suggestions...
*If you haven't already, go thru any records you have carefully and make a note of ANYTHING with a unique serial number....turbo, MS parts, audio bits... anything. Then get those numbers to the authorities and ask that they be entered NCIC
*You now have "reason to suspect Don". Print out the info contained in the linked threads and let the California folks know about the other allegations against Walker. Maybe PM the members and get any specifics you can, like the agencies and investigators in Colorado to see if they can network.

Nope, still nothing. Insurance paid out but I've still got my eyes and ears open. I really miss this car. Especially now that the weather is getting nicer. I keep hoping it'll turn up, but I'm not holding my breath. I have a feeling the good stuff was stripped from the car and it was dumped somewhere or cut up. Unfortunately none of the things that I had other than the turbo had a serial number that I was aware of, but even the turbo is pretty non-descript.
