Prelude Stolen - So Cal

My 2000 Prelude got stolen last night in Van Nuys. I know people generally steal these cars and sell them for parts. So let me describe it for you. It was Ficus green with 18" zenik wheels. One of the wheels was bent. Had a pioneer head unit which illuminated green. My honda was lowered with megan racing lowering springs. It had JDM styled tail lights and the housings were painted black. The headlight housings were painted black as well. The left rear fender was slightly dented. The roof of the car was plasti-dipped black. It had a Yakima roof rack with (4) Q86 clips instead of 2 86 and 2 85 clips. The car also had a 250w alpine amp installed.

I know that chances are slim, but if anyone sees the parts being sold, please let me know. 818 212 3500. Please post on any other forums. Please.

Dratz that sux!!!!!!

Check your local craigslist if you haven't already. Spread the search state wide and neighboring states as well while checking the CL.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Looks like an alarm should have been installed before that roof rack! Best regards.

Re: Prelude Stolen - So Cal

^^ X zaktly !!

Ya also gotta ask around. You may not get your car back but if you ask some of the uh... less than honorable people you know or others you know, know, you're likely to find out who did it.

I had some tools stolen from me back in the summer. I told a couple of crooked hat wearing thug-wanna-be's of a cash reward for a name that doubles if my tools returned. Got the name, but not the tools. I also found out the youngster fences them about 45 minutes from my city. Info was given freely by a bragger.

Check around. I offered $100. Maybe if you can afford it $250...

Re: Prelude Stolen - So Cal

Well it looks like I am going to get justice and put the person away. I found the ****er on my own and he will be put away. But my prelude is a pile of pieces. For now I'm mobbing around a GLI Fahrenheit.

Re: Prelude Stolen - So Cal

I suppose it's good news. Insurance gonna help ya.?

I was thinking of ths thread while on tobacco break today but forgot to check it.
Glad justice will prevail.

Most criminals aren't hard to find these days. Many times they brag or are just plain ole stupid. It's getting the dang police to do their part once you've done the leg work for them.
