Not mine but a colleague's.....

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stolen Ford Fiesta 1.1 Mk2 GHIA Rosso Red 1988 Reg. E349 VJW

This restored car was stolen from the driveway at my home in Birmingham between 3am and 6am on 4/7/17. Note the distinctive chrome trim around the windows & bumpers (except tailgate). The paintwork was scuffed on the nearside rear end by the thieves pushing it off the drive. If you see this car, please contact the Police, the Fiesta Club GB or myself (PM me (Norbert) and I'll pass details on). Your help would be appreciated.

One family owned from new (it was my colleague's mother-in-law's when first bought) as well. Bloody shame.

 

Mods, please delete / move / etc if inappropriate. Apologies if I've missed anything.

Car stolen happened to me only once.

In 1985 I had the only appropriate car for driving around in pre reunification Berlin - a '74 Buick Electra 225 4 door hardtop in Burgundy, with the 455 4v.

It was nicked and used as a getaway car for a bank robbery. Well, I could see to that, despite the car was seized and never again released.

Fucking criminals, running a bank.

 

But hauling a brick through the original dealer sticker adorned back window of my 405 estate by some local hoodies?

 

Not no, fuck no!

 

What the fuck do those thunderdolts have in mind when they steal a bloody Fester?

They would have been subjected to Hitler's euthansia laws just for that.

Agreed. I see only one reason it could be stolen - to ring a rotten XR2i.

Would an XR not have a different VIN code?

There is an all Fiesta banger meeting at Hednesford on 23rd July so very much hope there's no connection with that and the car is found safe and intact.

 

I've been watching bangers since I was a kid but sadly there is a a small undesirable element in the sport in amongst the majority of decent folk and we can't pretend otherwise

Between the 4th and 23rd is probably enough time to prep a banger...  I hope I'm wrong but that's where I'd be going with the rozzers looking at VINs.

If it's being rung then the VIN number is obviously gonna be taken from the none-hooky car

I'll keep an eye out on and off duty chap. I cover Great Barr too. Massive shame, I love these cars and there's clearly a sentiment to this one.

This, they'll take it off a kippered XR shell and stick it on the lowly one. Also, people aren't clever.

Fair enough, wasn't looking to restart that debate but just provide information that the OP may not have been aware of

Thanks to all that have helped out with this,I've given allthe info to the owner.

 

Hopefully it'll be found intact, but that looks less likely all the time.

 

Thanks again!
