what's missing from this picture?

...it gets worse, but this little sneak preview gives you some idea of what greeted me on a recent rain soaked morning.

It's not so much having my car stripped for parts that annoys me. It's not even the hours spent on the phone talking to the police and insurers. The not having a car for the near future bit is a tad annoying. No, what pisses me of the most is not the guys who did it, more the $500 excess I have to pay the insurance company. Gee aren't I lucky to be with...

Keep looking at the picture. Much more is gone than a boot!

I saw this car, in fact I parked next to it last week, when I went to visit the South Auckland Tough Girl Posse. They live across the road. It was unbelievable how they stripped it, damn them. Not the SATGP, sorry, they aren't that tought, the bastards who did that to your car.
It's weird when blog worlds and real worlds collide...

Crikey where do you live? I used to park my old Mercedes all over Sydney and the blipper only locked the doors about 70% of the time, so I was constantly returning to the car to discover that I had left it unlocked in, say, Redfern, or Chatswood Chase carpark for three hours. I even drove to Melbourne and left it onlocked overnight in Richmond. I never even had the change stolen out of my centre console.

You must have felt gutted when you walked up to your car and found it a mere skeleton of its former self.

And yeah, doesn't insurance excess suck.

If only you could find the people who stole the parts. They would probably steal them back for $250. Maybe even install them for you if you ask nicely.

lweofigWhen I had a crappy but newish korean car I left it unlocked frequently. No one touched it, in a street where break ins and thefts were common.

Moral of the story - if you don't want your car no one else will either.

But no matter how desirable your vehicle, at the end of the day, it's only a car.
