Alert - Stolen 71 240Z in Adelaide

Recommended Posts

Some scumbag stole my 71 from my driveway overnight.

 

White, large front spoiler, jellybean-style rims, MX5 seats, rego XEG935.

 

Will post a photo tonight but hoping the Z community can keep an eye out for the car or bits of it.

Jeepers another one. Get pics up ASAP. Not sure why they are going after these vehicles as parts are very easy to identify and hard to offload without someone knowing.

The same thing happened on FDRX7.com recently a long list of RX-7s were being stolen 1 after the other. I'm not sure what the game is here, but my fear is that the car are not being sold locally or stripped for parts to be sold locally, but actually being exported out of the country!

 

I really hope it shows up, I would be very sad to see it trashed or burnt out. Any car stolen is a PITA but replacing a classic 40 year old car is not easy to do.

Please send us some photos of what the car looks like so we can share this and hopefully track it down.

So sorry to hear this  :(

There is way to much of this going on right now, like Gav I am curious as to how people plan on moving these on ?

 

I suppose we all just have to question the source of any parts we see offered for sale. Details, and ideally photos, of anything that is unique about your Z or fittings will help.

 

I hope it turns up.

Photos attached.

 

Car was my daily driver for years so nothing too special from a mods perspective:

 

Engine: 2.8 block running standard SUs and Petronix ignition

Interior: Restored, crack-free dash; reskinned door panels; MX5 seats w speakers in the headrests

Suspension: In the last 18 months all bushes replaced with Nolathane and struts replaced - still look brand new.

Are there any places nearby with CCTV overlooking roads that go near were you live? You might be lucky if they caught something?

Not too far from me - I actually recall seeing you driving on the Parade a while back (good looking car!).

 

Will definitely keep my eyes peeled. Good luck.

Heart Breaking, and just overall it really is crap.

 

The WA boys will be notified.

 

Hoping all turns out well.

@ PerZee

 

Have you contacted the wreckers like Adelaide Z Cars or Grand Auto. Just in case parts start to surface ?

 

I'm in Unley BTW

So sorry mate.

It would not be too hard to recognise in Adelaide.

Will keep an eye out.

Maybe a joyrider has got it and dumped her in the sticks.. they may not have burnt her due to the high fire risk at the moment.

 

Just looking for a positive.

 

Fingers crossed

Im really sorry to hear this has occured when you came out in the morning you must have had a heart attack to see it missing. Im sure it will be recovered as these cars are to obviouse in everyway to disclose without notice , and all zed owners should make sure their pride and joys are securely placed as it is apparent many classic cars are now becoming targets of unwanted prey. Ears an eyes open wide for your zed here in melbourne.

Still no joy but photos circulating through social media and have some friends at SAPOL keeping an eye out. 36 hours in so not feeling particularly optimistic at present.

 

Just remembered further "identifying" bits;  I'd covered the rear deck, foot wells and transmission tunnel in Dynamat some time ago. Would be an absolute bitch to remove.
