Default Need some help

Hopefully I am posting in the right area? But I own a business and this vehicle that I am posting is robbing our customers every night, the police are wanting to know the make and model of the vehicle? It looks like a sunfire and also a grand prix, possibly a monte carlo? Thought maybe people that knew GM vehicles would know for sure by reflectors or tail lights or something. Sorry picture is so blurry, didnt have much light to work with. The picture shown he is backing up so I cant get his license plate. If I saw the vehicle again I would know what it looks like, just didn't recognize the wide flared front end of the car.

scratch that, with how far apart the headlights are, id say a 91-95 saturn sl. saturn sl is the only car with those headlights though.

The front end is flared out and the hood is round like a sunfire, I thought it was a sunfire but the frame seemed to wide to be a sunfire. The front end was very wierd and seemed very cheap, looked like a old time nascar remake from early 2000'*. Every Saturn I have seen has a GM tag on the side fender. If you look close on the door there is some writing, maybe says sunfire, grand prix....etc. I just dont know my cars that well. There is also a spoiler on the back of the window. This guy hits us every night and cops arent much help. I even have half his licence plate number!!

I tried to find a decent pic, but that year may be a bit too new to match perfectly.


Hey Clay, what'* this guy stealing? Nipping stuff out of cars in the lot?
