Another crazy tale for you all, I woke up one morning to my "87 colt vista being stolen a few days back, and then I went John Wick
kidding of course, but this was a giant surprise for me, I would never in a million years have heard of such a blasphemy, anyone who owns a colt vista as old as mine stolen from their driveway, but it gets better the person that stole my vista only had it for an hour before he got tired of it, and he ditched it on the side of the road... and not just anywhere ether it was outside of a junkyard
[one that I happen to frequent
] and immediately after exiting my car [Note: This is according to eye witnesses that were there] he broke into a customers Honda civic, that was in the parking lot of the junkyard and peeled away in a hurry, oh but it gets even better
the owner of the junkyard recognized my Vista, and he called the police for the civic owner,
the thieve left some of his belongings in my vista too, or maybe other stuff he stole[it was 2 backpacks and some of my belongings were in them too]
The junkyard owner was wondering If I went rogue or something, thats what he said when I went down there to retrieve the vista [ He did not see the events happen, he just was alerted by customers, and they were all pointing at my vista too
] we had a good laugh over that.
Now this man that stole my car has got to be a tweeker, or on some kind of substance, if you are a real thieve, and your risking going to spend hard time behind bars for your crime, then logic says you'd want to steel a more exotic car then a colt vista
and even if your a low time crook a civic and a corrolla typically have your attention all day long, and I live in a town with fart cannon Honda's, and my neighbors own a civic, Integra, accord, Corolla, Lexus's, you name it they have it, and most importantly it's worth more then a colt vista
I guess even a tweeker eventually realized it was not worth much and ditched it, but still he must hold a record somewhere for the longest time a tweeker/car thieve has driven a colt vista...
...before realizing it's a colt vista
he also stole most of the spare change in my ash tray, and thats about the extent of his damage maybe some gas burned but it was only like 25 minutes away.
Well the good side to the story is I got the car back without having to pay a tow yard, and yes I turned the tweekers belongings [aka loot] over to the CHP.
If anyone else has a good theft story I'd love to hear it.
I'm really glad I got the vista back, not because it's worth anything really, just the sentimental value, and I hope the civic owner gets his car back as well.
