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.

Damn.

I've seen you and the car several times near parade as well. at the time i was driving my rx7.

will keep a look out and if i see something let you know.

the problem with these older cars now they are getting more desirable and out of reach for lot of people. invest in a tracking device they not expensive or paging car alarm. if all else fails heavy duty chain and padlock and tie it to your house.

hope it gets found soon.

This is what worries me, I'd be so heart broken to have my Z stolen after 11 years of ownership. To think all that time it was safe and looked after and then whisked away by someone like that would made me so mad.

Personally I don't understand it, if i stole like a Ferrari GTO or something uber rare and special I wouldn't enjoy it when I took it out, as I wouldn't feel like I've earned it...

But I guess I'll never understand the mentality of people who do stuff like this.

I really hope the OP gets it back.

This car has been found, but I'll let the owner provide any further updates on what's going on.

Sorry but I'd rather let the owner communicate what is happening with it. Another member spotted it near his house with no plates on it and thought nothing of it at first, but after looking on the forum noticed it was the same car.

Understand, just glad it has been found. Hopefully reasonably intact  ???

Find it strange that someone can get on the Forum seeking help in finding their prized possession & so many members responding to their plight  resulting with the zed being found. Not being critical but I'm sure if it happened to any of us I'm sure the responsive gratitude to all & sundry would have been forthcoming immediately. Just my thoughts, anyway to all those that took the trouble to assist with this well done.

                                                  Regards: Alan.
