    Maybe they didn't know what was inside the trailer, and they just wanted the trailer?
    Or if they did know, think "inside job."

    Got a photo of the trailer?

    Hope they find it. This is happening way too much. A couple weeks ago someone stole a pick up, open trailer and stock car from a business parking lot during business hours! I'll post the info on the sprint car on a couple of racing boards.

    That is a really nice looking old sprint car.

    Crooks are getting more brazen all the time and it get's harder trying to stop this type of thing from happening.

    I have seen some of the tricks guys use to try and stop anyone from taking their trailers.

    I'd have to think that it was a trailer thief that ended up with a sprint car that they don't know what to do with.

    The vintage sprint car community is such that you couldn't show up at any event with that car or major parts of it and not be found out.
