    I know this is a Drifting site but there are many Petrolheads on here that can keep an eye out!!!

    My mates very special Mini that is soon to be Mag featured was stolen last night from the Plymouth area! :mad:

    This is a famous car Locally and has lots of national reconition throughout the Mini circles!

    The car and its parts stand out like a sore thumb being BRIGHT ORANGE with most of the car being totally custom with years of work being carried out!!

    My mate is totally distrought when he found it gone this morning!!

    Here is the pics of the car...........................

    Well!! After lots of posting on Forums and on Facebook by lots of people AMAZINGLY we found the Mini!!! :D

    After it had been stolen it had been moved to another area of the city in a small cul-de-sac, parked up and covered over! Randomly a guy we know who is a delivery driver happened to be in this street today and spotted "a Mini under a cover" but didnt think anything of it until he saw everyone looking for one on the net!

    He contacted a friend of mine who passed the details to me and I passed them to the owner and we all went to check it out!
    Much to his relief it was his beloved car under the cover but he waited for the Police to turn up before uncovering it!

    They had removed the rear window completely to gain entry but didnt smash it and left it behind, They had hotwired the car damaging the ignition and stolen the CD player from the dash! Other than this the car is fine and has now been recovered to a safe location!

    It also looks like it was nothing really to do with the ebay ad or at very least someone wanted to steal it before it was sold!!

    The power of the internet is amazing!! :thumbs:

    Heres some pics from tonight...................

    glad to see you got thi back, strangly i think i know the owner of this, only a young lad, 18/19 painted it himself?

    Sadly minis are possibly the easiest things to steal ever, some one left one in my mates pub garden and it took a matter of 20 seconds to have it away. The rear windows can be had out in a matter of seconds and due to the lack of plastic shroud around the ignition barrel it makes things a lot easier!

    glad to see a happy ending, it doesnt happen often.
