    Default Another victim

    Well my weekend started with a bang.Stopped infront of my local Spar last night,grabbed 2 packs of meat and when I got outside my nissan 1400 with gearlock,GONE.At first I laughed in disbelief thinking the car was out of gear and rolled away,but not so.3 min is probably a long time for a car thief.Some sod in Lesotho is driving a virtually new car today.Its funny though how one always goes back to the questions,what if or if only.If I maybe looked back.and and and ....

    Core, sorry to hear. Hope your insurance doesn't give you uphill like we have been hearing of late.

    Come and live in the Midlands - things much quieter here on THAT front....

    Ja, that's terrible news...what pee's me off is this type of thing always seems to happen to the good guys as well - the one positive thing, at least you're OK and that really is the main thing...

    That is what I said.At least I wasnt hijacked or something,as this is what they are doing at this mall.Bloem is not the sleepy hollow it used to be,just the cops are.I think the sindicates find us an easy target area.

    My sympathies Core! Sorry man
    I had a braai and my place with a couple of mates last night. Heard a strange noise at the cars but at first shrugged it off, but my instinct eventually got the better of me and I went to check it out.
    Swambos friends Toyota conquest's doors, the ignition and the gearlock were all stripped with the ignition wires pulled ready to be hotwired. Never saw the buggers, probably heard me coming and split but I another 2minutes and the car would have been gone.
    You have got to be so alert nowdays. Hope they get your car back man, but at least you ok thats the most important thing.

    Core!! Remember!!

    The cops do not act as car/parking officials. They can only react on a reported matter, so it is invalid to blame them.

    Sorry about your loss, at least as you say, you were not hi-jacked or put in any harmful situations.
