This Is Just Ridiculous...

Postby TheOrteganator » Thu Nov 05, 2009 12:09 am

So I think we all know by now that I don't exactly have the best luck with cars. First I ended up with Tony's cursed car, got that hit twice and had about 234098134098134 million clutch related problems, then after that got piled and totaled ended up with the 240Z as you all know. Did some shit with that car, put my 350hp hand built race motor in, and then decided I hated the car and wanted to sell it. Well I got to doing some thinking and figured out that as far as a track car goes it isn't going to get much better or cheaper than the 240Z and started to lean towards keeping it realizing that I'm gonna regret getting rid of it.

Until it got stolen, that is. I live in Belmont... who the fuck steals a car in Belmont?! I was hoping it would turn up but it's been a few days now so I don't think I'm going to get anything back. All I really want back is the motor because that's the one thing that no amount of money can replace. Long shot of course but just keep an eye out if you guys happen to see anything related to my car for sale, any of the unique stuff at least that is.

-Jim Wolf 3.1 Stroker Race Motor (although the bastards probably have no idea what engine they just stole, so look for a L28 with triple Webers with a Ferrari V12 air filter assembly and a red painted block)
-Flat Black Painted early (the thin style with none of that safety crap stuck on) 240Z bumpers
-16x7" +0 Offset authentic Panasport wheels w/ 225/50/16 Bridgestone RE730 tires

For their own good... I just hope that I don't find them.

That sucks. Did you happen to have full insurance? I hope you find it, but usually if you do it's been stripped already :(

Yeah luckily I have full coverage. I'm still waiting for the insurance settlement though and I'm concerned to say the least about the amount they're going to offer.

That's good. You should at least be able to get back what you paid, but that still isn't enough. Maybe the insurance company will work with you. Good luck.

man that is bad luck. best of luck with the insurance company though. if you have any receipts for the parts you have for the motor it should help out.

Kevin, i feel bad for you, i really do. but at least this was stretched across the span of a year.

In the last 2 months, My 2+2 died, and i finally diagnosed the problem and got it fixed, I totalled it 2 weeks after fixing it. 2 weeks after totalling it, I got Pa's Slicktop, and I blew the motor 2 days after that, which was about an hour ago.

I feel for both of you! I just hit 221,000 on the clock and I was just telling my wife that we should get ready for a "major investment" next year. However, I put 280,000 on my 280ZX before I put in another motor so I'm hopeful!
