I live in Monterey. I will keep an eye out.

Any back story on how you think they took it? Where was it when it was stolen?

Someone forward this to Jalopnik. Pics would be useful, as well as a police report.

Sorry to here that bro.
First car I had got stolen during a trade-over. Was an 89 Honda with 30k miles.
Hopefully you'll get it back. Make sure you file a report asap, and hopefully you can get it back, or find out who. I'll help if you need to ruff 'em up a bit.

If you've called the police, that's going to be a pretty easy car for them to identify.

Good luck.

OP should do this. That sight gets sooooo much traffic. I can post it on a few forums as well.

Spread it around the web and you just might have someone spot it.

That sucks. Luckily it's easy to identify though so finding it shouldn't be too hard, hopefully when it's found there won't be any damage. Good luck, hopefully someone catches the bastards.
