GUYS - NEED YOUR HELP - OUR BAY WAS STOLEN FROM THE WALLINGTON, SURREY AREA LAST WEEKEND. ITS ALL CREAM, 3 BAR ROOF RACK, JAIL BARS, ORIGINAL DOME HUBS, WHITE WALLS, EVERYTHING ON IT BRAND NEW. JUST BEEN FULLY RESTORED. REG NUMBER XYY 350F. NO RUST NO WELDING AND WE ARE JUST DEVASTATED. IT WAS AT VW AIRFIX (ANY COMMENTS ON GARAGE??!) IN WALLINGTON HAVING ITS CLUTCH DONE. THINK IT MUST HAVE BEEN RINGED BY NOW BUT WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE IT IF YOU CAN KEEP YOUR EARS TO THE GROUND. HAVE TRIED TO ATTACH SOME PICTURES - BUT CANT AAARRGGHH!!! INSIDE THE ENGINE BOOT ITS ACTUALLY PAINTED A BLUE/GREEN COLOUR. AND IT DOESNT HAVE ANY HEAT EXCHANGE PIPES UNDERNEATH. IT HASN'T GOT ANY FLOORING IN IT, ONLY A SHEET OF PLYWOOD. IT ALSO HASN'T GOT ANY HEADLINING IN THE BACK AS WE WERE IN THE MIDDLE OF ORDERING IT! THANKS ALL FOR YOUR HELP. MOBILE IS 07787 568375.
No idea why they're being stolen, but the aircooled VW scene isn't as happy and friendly as it appears on the surface - I reckon a lot of thefts are 'scene' ones tbh
Yes so it would seem Having heard the tale of cappucinocruiser's wheels and the supposed Hi power 1776 type 1 engine my mate brought for good money which turned out to be a load of miss-matched components thrown together (and from a fairly well known group ) It seems there alot of dodgy people in the scene
Mind you I suppose the shear size of the scene means that by law of averages you are going to get a few bad apples - especially when the genuine guys are willing to spend lots of money on their hobby.
