Sucky. Hope it turns up.

"Car was Damaged when it was Stolen; he found pieces of the Ground Effects around the Front Left Area that were laying in the driveway."

Sounds like maybe it got snatched by a rollback tow truck.

Worst case I hope he has good insurance! That will be a hard car to hide or even try to part out. Why do people think have to right to do what they do. Hope they are caught and prosecuted to the max.
Now to find a white tow truck in that area - hope the law investigates.

That area is a hotbed of older cars thief, especially Oldsmobiles. They seem to be finding them stripped out but usually not overly damaged. I know that sounds strange but in the case of the 1967 442 W30, they took the edelbrock headed built 455, Rossler transmission, 12 bolt rearend, the drivetrain had a lot of $$ in it. The left the body in a parking lot. Interior in tack, louvered hood ($$$) was set on the car, I believe the hinges were gone. The rear of the car's body set on cement blocks, yes there was some body damage but nothing compared to "real" butcher car strippers would do. There's been other brands also but they seem to like Olds. Sounds like the busted/ruined the ground effects on this G-body. That will be very hard to replace/repair. I figure theirs got to be at least 3 or 4 of them. Enclosed trailer with winch? Watch craigslist for parts. Jmo

The cops must be in on it. There's a dirty Olds thief running amok in Toledo, and I bet the parts are going overseas. [that may be due to watching Gone in 60 Seconds the other night....]
