Ya, wouldn't you be sad if it was your rig full of memories and you were driving it to the junkyard.

Very true. It was sad to part with our first TC when we upgraded. We had a lot of fond memories in that first camper.

I would question the intelligence of someone driving anywhere near that thing.

All that body damage can be rubbed out by a good body man.

It won't be long and it will be found on some back street in San Jose with the plates gone and the ID plate removed. The city will have to bear the expense of hauling to the junk yard.

Wow, that's pessimistic. And,,, around here just removing the ID plate is not going to help. There are numbers stamped on every part and the police can use them to trace down the owner.

There was a guy in the paper a few years back that tried to steal a old pickup and junk it out. By the time the cops got wind of it he had most of the truck gone. But, he still had one part of the rear differential left. A number stamped into that proved where the vehicle came from and he got busted.

Wow, CSI Storden, eh?
I've had vehicles stolen and the cops didn't even want the Vin. Was a burden to fill out the report it seemed, enough to appease the ins co.
He!!, a buddy has an old RV he's just pulled the built 454 out of and now it's completely worthless. We were saying we should cut the vin #s out and tow it down to Seattle and donate it to the homeless! Be cheaper than scrapping it.

If I lived around there I would do some complain about the poor police service and vote someone into office what would be more professional. I understand about not getting right down to the point of pulling numbers off of the differential when you are in a big city and they have other things to do. But, not taking the VIN at all sounds really bad !!

People complain about crime but, if the police are not doing anything about it then crime is going to be bad.

Sorry if I didn't explain that very well.
