Beautiful car. What are these thieves thinking.
Damn Troy, I heard when I got to the photoshoot tonight. I'm so sorry for you and Bugs. Please let me know if I can help.
I have said it before - cars - trucks and trailers need self powered GPS Tracking devices like these
That is such a work of art. I hope whoever has it doesn't destroy it to make a buck on parts. I wish you got your hand chopped off for stealing. this stuff wouldn't happen as often.
It would still happen because some people just cant help themselves but it would make it alot more difficult for them to steal without any hands.
i second that
NO NO NO, I love this car. This world is a horrible horrible place sometimes.
That makes me sick too my stomach!!!!
Dont think Americans use that word STEVE
lol he said Cunts. Gotta love it.
wow, that's terrible, people put all that work into a beautiful car, and scumbags with no respect steal it. hopefully they drop off the ford unscathed somewhere after they realize they can't do anything with it.
wow what a sharp car
oak tree & a rope for the thieves
this just breaks my heart. what a beautiful ride. just perfect.
Dave Martinez just posted on FB that they found the Truck ditched in Pasadena but the trailer with Ruby is gone... Fuckers!!!
I want to vomit. Why steal a car that can never be seen, driven, shown or sold without somebody immediately identifying it? I hope the scumbag is found, shot and pissed on!
Thought the same thing about the famous art that's been stolen over the years and is salted away in private collections. Art and jewel thieves have "taken custom orders" for decades and I really fear for us car guys. Will owners of top builds start turning down offers of magazine, etc. coverage? Sure puts a fuckin cramp in our hobby!
Its sick to think that some Billionaire is "ordering" whatever Rod or Custom he'd like to have and "gets off" on staring at it in his underground garage somewhere.
This starts a scary new thread of "Lost Hot Rods and Customs"!!
I'd wager it's in a container (Long Beach). Can't US Customs set up a full X Ray machine that would require all containers to pass through?
man that sucks, i wish they would have found the car with the truck. i know chris c talked to the lapd when his tbird got stolen, and he said they really dont use lojack much anymore, but i talked to LAPD Taskforce for Regional Autotheft Prevention (TRAP), and they told me a gps system, or lojack gps system works every single time! i just wish some of you guys with really nice finished cars would invest in some kind of tracking system! then maybe we can stop this from happening, or at least get these beautiful cars back where they belong!!!
or some ones garage in pasadena or altadena, it does have some not so nice parts in both those towns!!!
Wow sorry troy Hope it is still in the Area! I'll be cruising in the Ghetto of SFV all day tomorrow So ill be looking!
Still sick to my stomach!!!!!! I feel horrible for all parties involved!!!!
Troy -- sorry again, man. This just plain sucks. Unreal.
I will do the same in southern AZ. This car would not get by me with out a double take. Sorry for your loss, I hope its only for a short time
BTW this is one of my favorite builds Ive ever seen.
Bad deal. Hope they find the crooks . Beat their ass then castererate them.
My 2 cents
Driving from Montana to Santa Fe this weekend in a 64 Galaxie, will be watchin, and talkin to people gassin up rigs with trailers.
holy shit, i'll keep an eye out.
Thanks for all of the comments... I really appreciate it... it helps... haven't slept .... this was definately a SHITTY day.
The truck was indeed found, minimal damage small hole in door to pop locks, ignition damage, possible disabling of the Onstar system. Detective says definitely "Pro" job.
I thought that maybe they wanted the truck & trailer, but the fact that they abandoned the truck but kept the car... kinda eliminates that theory. Especially since in an LA chop shop the truck is probably worth more then the car!
We will keep everyone posted ..... still hoping!!
WTF!!! lets catch these guys! gutless!
Sorry to hear about this...a rash in SoCal has got to stop!
Holy crap this is just what I have been thinking with all the great cars and trucks that have been snatched.
I hope you get it back Tory!
NO MFFFFFFFFFFFFFFING WAY,,,,,,,LETS HOPE FOR THE BEST ,and please give someone the chance to administer them a good ol fashioned ass WOOPIN PULEEEEEASE
