    Yes and close, it was stolen in Cerritos, Ca. an off topic Suburban from a co workers wife. Another guy they knew spotted in TJ. Armondo and 2 buddies drove down with the other set of keys and stole it back. With the paperwork they had no trouble bringing back over the boarder. It had already been paid off with the insurance company so that's where they took it. It was really a nice lo milage GMC. The insurance company resold it and split with Armondo what they got for it over the original settlement.

    I waited to respond to this so I could see the original article. I have now seen it and I don't believe the story. I also checked with Baja Bound, the Mexican insurance company I used. I specifically asked them if they would insure a car left in Mexico for repairs. They absolutely will. Anyone who self insures a car as valuable as a family heirloom is not thinking straight. I wish Paul Harvey was still around to tell us the rest of the story. FWIW, Magoozi said he would be glad to pursue the issue if he had some more facts. When my 40 coupe is done I'll be heading back down there.
