    Was the Olds a roller with no drivetrain? Had to be a friend of a relative or friend. I hate thieves and I hope they get caught. Better yet, shot.

    The owner removed/saved original engine/4-speed. Car had a 461 Old race engine/automatic. Car had a trottle stop as to "slow"it down because the owner didn't want to "cage" the car enable to return to original. Car was race/drive ready. So possibly it was driven away.

    copyImage.jpg Hello All, It's the old good news, bad news. Car was found in an abandoned lot in a bad section of Toledo. Car was stripped of a Bill Travado Racing, Edelbrock headed 461 ci engine, Rossler transmission and they took the rear end and suspension. Trunk lid jacked up and the hood. Windows were left down and of course there was a monsoon. Owner is happy to get it back and now for the labor of love. Probably no one will ever be caught. Thanks for the help/support. Ken

    Well, it sucks that it happened but at least he has the car and its numbers matching parts. I don’t think car theft is a capital offense, but I’m not sad when someone shoots a thief. Kinda like ‘Wheel of (mis)Fortune’. Land on this triangle, get a free 442. Land on this one, go to jail. Land on this one, threatened owner perforates you.

    Good to know he got the car back. Horse thieves met the hangman. Car thieves are just as bad.

    At least it doesn't appear they destroyed the body panels just for the heck of it.
