i think it was seeming there are alot of mechanic's in that area...no proof though.. The thing that sucks though is i just lost my job working at a wrecker do to shortage of work and was depressed so i decided to rip my baby apart to keep me busy! The biggest thing that suck's is it was'nt insured.

Totally sucks, but that is life, please dont let this ruin your ambitions, get yourself re-employed and move on, just a bit wiser for the experience. Remember when one door closes another one opens, a good rule for your life.

Ask neighbors if they saw/heard anything. Sorry, I agree with the others; bet it was someone you know. File a report with the police.

Re: how low can some people go!!!!!!!!!

I know it was someone I know....but like I said no proof.I did file a report but they say it is'nt that important due to the fact it is only worth around 1500.00.....I beg to differ but there's nothing I can do about it but learn from it

Re: how low can some people go!!!!!!!!!

Is the car insured? Comprehensive coverage covers theft and/or vandalism. I don't know anyone that's made a claim for stolen motor parts, but it may be worth a shot if you have the coverage...

Re: how low can some people go!!!!!!!!!

Sorry to hear about your loss. I can tell you right now that it is someone you know or are acquainted with. They know your car and what it has. They also had the proper tools for the job. Did you show your car to someone recently who commented about your manifold? It had to be someone with alot of guts to do something like that. More than likely it's someone close with knowledge of your car.

bb, (wish you guys would include your names)
You may want to call your homeowners insurance. I know for a fact that if personal items are stolen from your car, that is who covers it. If the car was not insured, the parts might be covered under homeowners. It's worth a phone call anyway.

Re: how low can some people go!!!!!!!!!

Just wondering if anyone ever heard of a way to lock the hood release handle, so that they can't get the hood up or at least will be more likely to set off the alarm trying to open it. I live in the sticks so it's probably less likely to happen to me (knock on wood) but it may be something to try.
