Woke up this morning, about to head to work, get downstairs and notice something is wrong. Look left, look right, try to remember where I parked last night and then realize, my car is gone. I'm bummed. Waited an hour for the police, that didn't work, found out that they want you to go to the Police station if someone steals your car. Nice right? Police report filed, I called the local dealers and dropped a line with the local Volvo forum to get some more eyes on the street, but I don't have high hopes.<p>I would like to thank everyone here for help with advice, parts, fixing things and great fun stories. i don't know If I'll be getting another Volvo or something else, but it has been fun, and I'll continue to drop by.<p>Also, probably next week when I've really given up, I'll be putting some parts up for sale.. so that's the good news.

Re: Monday morning blues - A stolen R (58ford)

Wow, sorry to hear that. Good thing about having an R in the states is that nobody wants to steal it.

Re: (hoagrod)

Sorry for the loss Bro! Looking at your mods I see your car was dialed.<p>What are the chances of getting your car back, and if so would you want to keep since it was probably ridden extremely hard/abused??

Re: (Token)

Unfortunately, no car ever made is impossible to steal. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Jeremy, that really really sucks man, I feel real bad for you!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> There are a few words whispered on the winds, like "....S5...." and "....M5.....", or even "....S6..." <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> Good luck on the car hunt, as bad as that sounds. Seriously, very sorry. <p>-Steve

The Turbo X is something I'm looking at too. I don't know if I will be modding the next car as quickly as I did this and with the S series I wouldn't have too, but it's a matter of time and money. <p>Thanks for all the support and best wishes.. If I lived back in the states it would be easier to find an alternative, used car, etc. Over here.. it's not as easy. Hard to trust used cars from military people and I'm not sure I want to buy a beater for a period of time, since I like to drive and travel.
