Some asshat stole my Oldsmobile
« on: April 30 2017, 10:45:02 PM »
I had a lovely winter beater 89 'Olds 98 Regency.  Solid car (for salty Ontario) and it was extremely reliable.  That 3800 was a pillar of reliability, never let me down.  Only had 150 000 kms.  I just rebuilt the front end suspension and some asshat stole her out of my driveway last night.  She was locked and I had my Caddy blocking the end of the driveway.  Well on the bright side they didn't tear up the lawn. 


Since you cannot get agreed value on a 4 door Olds in Ontario (damn gov't) I may owe the insurance company.... sarcasm!!!

That car was a great car


sooo pissed off :068:

Probably needed it to hold up the likka Stowe.
Sorry for your loss, I'm sure you could come down here and find one to replace it.

Be glad it wasn't the buick.

Spent 2 hrs at the mto trying to cancel my plates this am. What a gong show. It is reported to the police.  Can't get hagerty on an 89 Olds 98. Too many produced according to them. Drove around auto shops and wreckers today. No luck. I am guessing the took it for $350 in scrap. Figures just got her they way I wanted and blamo.  Spent the afternoon installing motion sensing flood light.  Researching wireless camera systems.

Good Luck with finding it but if nothing else I guess it's better than losing the Buick.

Drug money maybe. Asshats broke into my shop a few years ago, all for drug money. It's that "I feel helpless" that pissed me off. I'm not a violent person but that warm and fuzzy feeling of beating the crap out of somebody was there. Sorry to hear it, why can't people just get a life with a job?

When I had my entire race rig stolen 2 years ago...this is how the insurance was gonna handle the 2004 2500 HD for payout. I had pics of when I had purchased it 8 weeks earlier. The vehicle was based on mileage and condition. It's either classed as in poor, good or above average condition. Mine was the latter...so it came out at $12,500 plus 13 percent tax added. I would assume you'd get black book plus 13 percent. Luckily I found my truck abandoned behind a bar in Hamilton 3 weeks later with minimal damage...so I had them fix it.

God himself couldn't figure out how to start this truck now.

I figure it was a scrap metal guy.  They are always in the neighbourhood, $350 in scrap is what it is.  The car really has little to no value to the insurance company.  I am installing cameras tomorrow and my front yard is as bright as a baseball diamond at night now.  Drove around to some body shops and auto repair shops in the area to no avail. Standard auto is still closed re the fire.  Will try some places in Ajax tomorrow.  Fairly certain she has been crushed by now.

Having my rig stolen was a real eye opener as to what goes on in the auto theft world. If it was kids joyriding or crackheads needing a fix, they would have grabbed the Caddy at the end of the driveway. If the Olds was rust free, I'm betting someone wanted it for the body panels for the their own Olds...and when they see the odometer reading...woul d likely pull the drivetrain. Ballsy enuf to come up in your driveway and grab it...and drive it across your lawn...so ballsy enuf to dump it behind a mall or factory stripped.

The story of my rig being stolen...the circumstances of it...and tracking it down...is almost unbelievable.

The "street sweeper" in Toronto found my car in north Scarborough.  The street sweeper is a car with cameras on the roof that reads plates on parked cars and checks if they are stolen.  It is run by Parking Enforcement in the City.


The Police Officer I spoke with said the car had no damaged, we shall see.


They are finger printing it and once they have finished I get my car back.
