Old Yeller STOLEN

Post by Damn-it Don on Mon Mar 28, 2011 9:43 am

UPDATED DETAILS
The worst, unimaginable happened last night between 1 am and 830 this morning. Old Yeller was stolen from my apartment complex. Most all of you know what she looked like, but here are the details-

-engine tins were painted grey, with airbrushed sheet metal rivits.
-Dellorto carbs had painted aircleaner lids- black with a red stripe and letters.
-backwindow is etched with the VWs lined up around a stylized Mr. Bubblehead.
-Swingaxle tranny is black with red ribs, and axle boots.
-Rearview mirror (inside) was rivited sheet metal too.
-Tach is an old school "Sun" model- with a cracked glass, and a smiley sticker on the face. Red illumination light too.
-Dash grills are both chromed- the smaller one is missing at least 1 tab on the back and hangs kinda crooked.
-Glove box door has a wolf airbrushed on it, and a "Aircooled Volkswagen" Harley style design too.
-Small front hoodscoop, black,
-All fenders are fiberglass- lightly coated in black primer, with hints of grey or yellow primer showing through a little. Fronts were both
flared, rear are widened.
-Stock beam with lowered spindles.
-Stock rims and tires, painted black and silver.
-Tan Honda bucket seats (OG seat tracks removed) 1 tan door panel (pass. side) Black carpet. Flat deck in place of rear seat.
-Scat short shifter
-Bamboo parcel tray under dash

Please, keep an eye out for her, and any of her parts. If anything turns up, call me at 404- 906- 7742, and the Hiram police dept. at 770-445- 2117, or the Paulding County Sherriffs Office.
Scroll down further for detailed photos.

Make sure you post this on thesamba. It's going to be hard for them to hide/part/or sell a car with that much detail. They will certainly screw up and get caught. Man I hate to hear stuff like this. Hopefully you'll get it back soon.

Don ,Don I can't imagine what you feel like right about now. I'll keep my eyes open and kick some ass if I see it!

The Samba has a stolen section I believe, post something over there in case it is now out of state. Dumb asses!

That is just horrible news. Did you check to make sure it didn't get towed for some reason? A few years back i was living in an apartment and woke up to find my van missing thought it was stolen, but it turned out it had been towed. See who your apartments use for towing and call them up... you never know.
