Default Help locate stolen Aurora(a complete loss now)

On the Aurora forums, someone had their 2001 Silver Aurora stolen from a gas station! If any members near the New York, Massachusetts, etc, area could keep an eye out for his car, he would be more than grateful. He has a lot of personal belongings in the car and it'* crucial he get it back.
Here are some photos of the Aurora.








Some distinguishing factors for the car are a silver painted grille, the oldsmobile logo on the front license plate, and the Aurora V8 windsheild banner. The car has the tan interior as well. Thanks guys!

I'm not sure what city. I left him a message asking him though. His profile says he'* in the western part of Massachusetts though.


EDIT: here'* his reply
Quote:
Shell Gas Station/Dunkin Donuts on Main Street in Holyoke, Massachusetts. 7:45am.

My guess is that it was someone that knew my routine because I've been doing the same morning thing everyday for the past year and a half, OR it was someone that was walking by and had some balls and said, "well here we go!"

For anyone that has been to Randy'* buddy'* tow lot..

That'* Holyoke.

CFoote showed me that this morning and we both wondered how this guy could leave his car UNLOCKED...forget about running unattended in Holyoke. I don't feel safe driving in Holyoke.

We'll keep an eye out.. can we have the plate number to help ID it.

I believe plate information is coming, the car could very well be abandoned. Crooks either A) take it to a chop shop for parts or B) leave the car somewhere until the heat is off, then go back and get it.

Not in Holyoke..

They are just riding around til the tank is empty. They aren't going to chop or part it. There'* no market around here if it wasn't made in Japan.

The standard thing is ...it'* cold.. it'* nasty out. Now they have a car to drive for a few days.

damn, I feel for that owner, I hope he gets it back! I must say though at least the thief had good taste in picking his cars!

the FIRST thing I thought when I saw the pictures was "Gee, that looks like Holyoke where Randy stored his car" I KNEW IT!!


and yes, getting out of the car there was sketchy. good thing randy fit in or we would have had issues.
