That suxs!

Best of luck in your recovery efforts. Don't let the insurance company rip you off. They will certainly try.

Car was found but not in the condition I was hoping for. They crash it into a tree dead center of the front bumper.

Damage man, I feel for ya big time.

It's of course replaceable, but I know once you've made the car yours, another wont be the same

I was at a car dealership looking for a new work truck. Car was parked in front of the dealer in front of the cameras. I was out of the car for 5 min tops. The car was off but the keys were in it.

They found the two guy who stole it they tried to run. They were on drugs and found needles and drugs in there bags. They were junkies in there early 20 and have never been in a car with over 400 rwhp.

Sorry to hear that. That has to suck really bad.

On my way back from KC today I stopped at rest area to use the facilities. I left the keys in the car not thinking because at first I wasn't leaving sight of it and was just waiting on my wife. Then decided, well while I'm here anyway....

Walking back to the car is when I realized my keys were in the car windows rolled down.
