Stolen 02' - Boulder, CO

Hi Everyone,

 

 

 

My wife and I returned from a friends wedding tonight (gone June 6-16th) to find our 2002 was no where to be found.

Was taken from a parking lot at our apartment complex in Boulder, CO.

It's not at the tow yards, and the police have no records of it.

We love the old thing. We have travelled across the US in it. Fixed it on the side of the road in the middle of no where. Made friends over repairs. It's our adventure mobile.

 

Please keep an eye out for it.

I'll keep my eyes out- easy up here, I haven't seen another 2002 driving around since I got mine.

 

I have no idea what they'd do with it, they're too remarkable...

So sorry to hear another 02 has been stolen. I hope it can be found. Please post ViN. Will definitely keep an eye out for it.

VIN: 2508125

 

I will go check with the neighbors once everyone wakes up.

We got home pretty late from the airport. 

 

Thanks all. I am hopeful.

Did you mean 2580125?  "250xxxx" is not a 2002 VIN--looks like a '72 from the pictures.  Any distinguishing features--aftermarket equipment or something that wouldn't be quickly noticed and a thief might overlook if he/she were to change the car to avoid detection?

 

Dumb question, but could someone at the apartment complex have had it towed because it had been sitting while y'all were out of town?  Stranger things have happened...

 

Hope you get it back nice and intact.  And soon.

That's not good at all , hopefully there is a good explanation & your motor will be returned to you guys unharmed. Good luck with the search , hopefully the Bobbies will help you out .

I guess it was towed because it didn't fit in somebody's idea of a proper vehicle in the parking lot. Maybe someone disnt like the exemption from AirCare Colorado. Did you have a Moes bagels sticker on it. Some old Vics coffee cups, A menu t shirt from the village coffee shop. Maybe some left overs from China Gourmet. Hope it shows, I passed along this thread to some friends on the Front Range

I will keep an eye out for it here in the Tulsa OK area.

 

Sorry to hear about it missing.  

 

One good thing is that these cars are easily recognized and crooks will find it hard to hide this car.

Bummer! 

 

Ya thought to maybe reach out to the guys over at Jalopnik? Sometimes they do write-ups on stolen cars and they come home.

Thanks for all the kind words.

 

@mike You are correct on the VIN. It's 2580125

 

Took a drive to the yards yesterday but no luck. 

 

Staying hopeful.
