Phillip Lee's car has been stolen. Please keep your eye's open

Recommended Posts

Im sure some of you already know what happen as I've posted it on FB Ratsun. Figured I would post it here anyway just to further spread the word. His car was stolen from his shop Speed of sound out in Sacramento CA. I know the chances of getting his car back are slim, either way just trying to help a fellow datsuneer out. Here's some photos of his car incase any one see's it driving around if your from the area. If it pops up in your city don't hesitate to reach out. 
 
Thanks

Billet arm rests!! 

 

I hope this car can be found. not because of the arm rests, but holy hell there is some really good work done on this. I can imagine the gut wrench when he saw that it was missing.

Yeah, that's not good.  All those go-fast bits attract attention.  Hope they find it.  It's going to stick out like a sore thumb.

Truly a beautiful 510 yet an ugly act. These two photos don't really match editing wise, but these are just to see more of the 510.

Yes the car has been spotted this morning at 8am in Elk Grove by a Walmart being driven around. They took the sticker's off is what they reported to Phil.

 

Hopefully the next person who see's it follows them and calls the police.

Sadly the theft of old cars is pretty common here, especially early Ford Escorts which are worth strong money. They usually disappear without trace. Hopefully if this has been seen around then it's not been taken to order or to be stripped down for parts. Massively sucks though. Hope it gets reunited with it's owner.

Had a ricer in the puget sound disappear for 12 hours. All fiberglass and aftermarket parts were removed including the wheels. Another set of wheels was put on to move car to ditch spot that had a cracked rim....

 

 

Seriously hope that's not where this car ends up. I feel bad for the owner and hope he is reunited with his baby soon if not already

Good friend of mine used to work for a company that restored an maintained vintage racecars for very wealthy clients. On of their guys was hauling some cars back from a race in central Canada, 2 cars in an enclosed trailer towed by a pickup not one thing had a marking on it. Drive woke up only to find the truck and trailer gone out of the hotel parking lot, the owner of the car received a call that said to bring 25k to a certain location alone. He got there, just the truck and trailer sitting at the end of some road, got a call telling him where to drop the money and they keys would be there. Guy stopped the money grabbed the keys and left, everything was there they don't even think they opened the trailer. 25k isn't bad to get back over a million dollars worth of cars.

 

Was supposedly the Canadian mafia.

I despise thieves and I often fantasize about beating the one that cleaned me out in 08 with a baseball bat full of nails...

I hope it's found, there are a lot of parts on that car done buy TSR so that stuff won't be able to be sold without a red flag being brought up. Hopefully the idiot is just taking it for a spin and dosen't damage it too bad. You can't get away with stealing a 510, especially one this unique community is too tight knit for it to disappear forever.

I would've called the Mounties.

That's what I said, right after "there's a Canadian mafia!?"

Should have had a kill switch on it. Or a disabling device. How hard to prevent the fuel pump from working??? or the CAS? Yeah, you say: that's obvious now and doesn't help.....but enough of these get stolen that you would think people would do this to 'not be the next guy'. There's even more reason on a 'built' car for wanting theft protection. Can't trust the law or friends or the internet to look after your possessions. If you care about your vehicle you have to be pro-active and look out and protect them yourself.
