Back home:



Hello,

Unfortunately I have to post this as one of my first posts.....my 1991 Skyline GT-R is officially STOLEN.

It was stolen from Heritage Auto Sales in Calgary, Alberta - 7500 6th Street SE at about 1:00pm today - March 26th, 2008. A test driver that went on a permanent test drive.

Police reports have been filed and all ID on the guy was fake.

His description is the following:

White Male, approx 22-24 years of age. Heavy set guy probably weighing about 185-195lbs 5 foot 6 in height. Distinguishing features on him were he was missing his ring finger and middle finger on his left hand.....also had severe scarring on the top of his left hand. He had a piercing with a pointed stud on his right eyebrow. Light colored, short spiked hair. He went by the name Terrance.

He also had a friend driving a late model Acura TSX, silver in color with a damaged rear bumper. I don't have much for a description on this guy other than again, a white male 22-24 years of age about 6 foot tall weighing around 160lbs - slim build.

Any details that lead to apprehending the suspects or finding the missing vehicle will result in a cash reward.

The pictures are of the stolen vehicle:

Thanks.

It had a dealer plate on it while on the test drive. So the plate that was on it was M00186. The plate was in a bag hanging out of the trunk.

Also, the vehicle was VERY close to empty was he took it out. I would guess 10-15km's tops before he would need to fill it.

A good chance he would be at a service station around 1:30-2:00pm if he was to go very far.

Thanks

The guys story was that he had his friend driving his old GT-R last year and his friend flipped the car and wrote it off. "Terrance" was in the passenger seat and had his hand out the window - when the car rolled it took off his two middle fingers.

Apparently insurance paid out $17,000 on the car and he was looking to get into another GT-R now.

We went out on a test drive on Thursday, March 20th at around 6:30pm and I went along for the drive with him. The car wasn't running properly because the battery was stone dead and wouldn't take a charge. The computer kept resetting itself and the fuel management was all messed up so the car was surging. I told him to leave his number and I'd give him a call when we swapped out the battery.

I tried calling up the number he gave me which was 457-6658 and of course it was not an active number.

He showed up again today at around 12:45pm - when I questioned him about the number he said that I had wrote it down wrong and it was actually 457-6657. Made sense at the time, and seeing as I am a trusting person I allowed him to go on a solo test drive, as the guy seemed to be a genuine buyer.

Long story short, a 10 minute test drive quickly turned into a stolen vehicle.

The police came by, took a statement and put out the word across Calgary and Canada.

I'm not expecting to see the car back in one piece, but I am crossing my fingers.

Thanks.

R32 Beefed up motor. Only mods known are what was listed.

And no usable photocopy of a license - all fake details too.

I've got a sizable deductible on the insurance......if the car is found it would be a sizable reward.

Keep your eyes open guys. I'll keep you updated on any happenings.

I will keep my eye out for it. Hope you recover it, cause it seems like your car is the perfect candidate to be stripped and sold off in pieces... Let's hope it is found before that happens
