sure hope it's a joy ride and that whoever took it doesn't check the junk in the trunk... wishful thinking I know..
police report was filed at 4am today.. so, who knows if they will have any luck.

Check with car insurance, home owners insurance and see if there's any provisions for those tools? Or keep an eye on craigslists/local pawn shops.

Stealing a man's livelihood in tools is lower than whale 'poop'.
As a mechanic I feel for you. Twice I've had scumbags raid my rollaways for everything at work.
Had someone try to steal my lifted GL wagon from right out front of my own house 2 mo.s ago. Glass breakage sensor thwarted them.

You know what they say: a manual transmission is the best anti theft system in America. I guess it didn't work in your case, but still, haha. Hope you find it soon!

here is a shot of the car with the cell phone, kinda blurry, but this is what it looks like with the hubcaps off and the roof rack installed...

These type of thefts are really on the rise and most the time its by someone that needs transportation to another town, usually only 10-15mi away from where it was stolen.

Couple thoughts: leave a spare clutch cable lying around in plain sight and put a new, unused head lice comb in the glove box..................
I will be looking

Keep your eyes out for it, especially between seattle-everett... (most likely zone of dumpage)
reward if found, too btw...

Not far from the location stolen, it has been completely cleaned out
actually, so cleaned out, it even looks like they vacuumed it too? There was also a note found inside- (from one thief to another) stating that they could not wait around to watch the car, and that she had new plates for the car.. which (my plates are missing) which means they were in process of doing a plate swap with another stolen car or something along those lines- and it was cleaned, probably prep to sell it...
I have a lead on who the thief is, where they live, and where my tools might be.. the police said they can't really help unless something else comes up that is a major thing. so if anyone wants to help me pursue this further, to try and catch them... come talk to me...

i recommend that you put a good security system on the car and security camera close to the car for when they try to steal it again so the cops have evidence.(or you could just get a security system)

Good luck with justice, if I were closer I would love to help, watch your back.
