    Speaking of cars, my wife’s was stolen over the weekend.

    I had a classic Ford Escort RS Turbo stolen in 2004. The confusion when I came out the front of my house and paused while I to think where I might have parked it since it was clearly not on my drive. Thankfully it was found only a few days later

    I walked outside to load my wife's car for her gig and thought I just couldn't remember where we parked. I tried beeping the horn to find it and when it didn't make a sound I figured it was on the floor above me. When I got up there and didn't see it my heart started racing. A very bizarre experience.

    My father in law is our insurance agent and he says if the car turns up we probably won't want it back. I'm not sure if we'd prefer to get it back and bleach the interior, or just take on a (hopefully) small car payment and get something new. We realize now we had a real attachment to her car.

    My heavily customized Night Train was DEFINITELY taken apart within a couple of days but that hasn't stopped me from looking for it. lol
    The reality is that even if it WAS in one piece, I wouldn't want it back. It'd be... tainted. That make any sense?

    Lightweights.

    I had TWO cars stolen in High School (yes they were both locked).

    The Buick was found in downtown Cleveland. Totally stripped. I mean they took everything... doors, hood, trunk lid, seats, dashboard, heating element, carpeting. Then they set it on fire. Needless to say, we didn't get that back.

    The Pontiac was stolen from a VH concert. Luckily those guys just drove it until it ran outta gas and left it on the side of the road. We had that back the next morning no worse for wear other than the broken passenger window.

    Buick and Pontiac... two names I haven't seen in car discussions on this forum!

    Back when we had a '94 Saturn SL2, it was all the rage to steal them. Ours helped pad those theft stats one day when it was stolen from a park & ride. Anyway, it was found when a policeman was patrolling the parking lot of an apartment complex known to be a dumping ground of stolen cars. Let me tell you something: If your experience is anything like ours, your father in law is right. Our car smelled like a hobo's favorite undergarments. It took forever to get that smell out of the car. Of course, there were a bunch of scuffs on it that weren't there before but that smell was the worst. Good luck with your wife's car.

    Sorry to hear the bad news, especially around Christsmas. Very sad. I'd be pissed.

    Completely understand. About 2 years ago I loaned a drum set to my lead singer for the summer. When I got it back, you could tell he beat the hell out if it. Lots of cosmetic issues from misuse. I didn't even want it. I just sold it.
