WTF? Fiero owner screwed over....

http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum1/HTML/077130.html

Cliffs:

KC man has his car stolen w/ vanity plates
...man is mailed a ticket when the car runs a red light camera
...police don't have enough to go on to find the car
...man gets mailed another ticken when the car runs the same red light camera
...police don't have enough to go on to find the car
...man finds car due to tip from coworker and calls the police
...police tell man to move his car or it will be towed

If it's a repost, my apologies. I've been away for a few days.

Re: WTF? Fiero owner screwed over....

who in the world steals a Pontiac Fiero? I think that car has made it to every "Worst Cars Ever" list.

Re: WTF? Fiero owner screwed over....

This happened to a buddy before they came out with the two pictures with one of driver, one of plate. His vehicle was stolen and he had a report from the local cops. 2 months later he gets a ticket in the mail. Goes to the court house, they said it was his car he had to pay the fine. He went to court and lost!!!!

Just like our quirky little cars, some people love that Fiero. A former buddy of mine went through three of them and probably would own one today if he wasn't serving time.

Lets see, last time, for aggravated/unlicensed driving, DUI, possesion of controlled substances, (2) hit and runs, evasion, reckless endangerment, destruction of public and private property... I think thats about it.

Re: WTF? Fiero owner screwed over....

even the Fiero owners agree with me:

Quote:
I don't understand why anyone in their right mind would bother stealing a stock Fiero in less than perfect shape? Its not like the parts are worth enough to try to part one out.
Quote:
this story doesn't make sense. First off the car is worth little. Parts are worth something but only to a Fiero collectors! The metal content is lower than a steel car so they even bring less value at the crusher! Secondly because there are so few Fieros on the road, it sticks out like a sore thumb. It doesn't make sense that someone would go through the trouble of stealing an old used low value automobile.
Quote:
This theft has to be the work of an amateur. The seasoned professional goes after the big buck luxury or sports cars and fences them to the chop shops.
What the heck is a thief going to do with a Fiero? Sell the parts here in the mall? I don't think so.

Wow, cops in KC are really inept.

A revolution gets its name by always coming back around in your face.

Honestly, the owner of that any Fiero got screwed when (s)he signed papers for the car.
