I'm sure the thief just jumped in, and took off. Not like anything was going to catch him....

Holy shizzle. How the heck can you steal that thing. 1500 horsepower isn't that "streetable" if ya know what i mean. Yea, 632 cid is huge. In HOT ROD magazine, they did a build up of a 67 camaro and stuffed an all aluminum 632 cid engine in it. Of course it didn't have a big supercharger like that but still, 700 horsepower is a little bit more than you need. But hey, sure is fun. Oh..... and did i mention that camaro was made to be a street car.

According to the news article, they had to have towed it out while the owner was out of town. As you can imagine, the car is/was pretty loud. They police figure the car is gonna get parted or shipped overseas. What a horrible end for a gorgeous machine...

so i was watching the local news (kare11) and i seen a pic that i wont forget

i might not have caught the whole story, cuz my friends were being loud, but heres what i got out of it. the car was owned by a mayor in the cities here. he reported it stolen, then later changed his story that it was in the shop, and he forgot. the police became suspicious and asked him some questions, but he said he was late for a meeting? then today or yesterday his plane crashed and he died. did he fake his own death and collect the money?? all the police have are questions. i tried looking for the story on the website (kare11.com), but it was such a small story, i dont see it anywhere...

and oh yeah, on the story, they said it was a $80,000 car, and on the internet site it says it was $100,000...my friends made fun of me for knowing that

Plane crash kills mayor
Craft goes down in western Wisconsin
BY DAVID HAWLEY and KEVIN HARTER
Pioneer Press

In a robust life filled with varied interests, Randy Hodson played college football, learned to scuba dive, flew airplanes and helicopters, and fulfilled a lifelong ambition of owning a vintage car.

Hodson, 47, was killed Thursday when his Cessna 172 airplane crashed in a hayfield near Webster, Wis. He was alone in the plane, and family members think he was flying to Duluth, Minn., to attend a business meeting.

His interest in his family and community also led him to become the enthusiastic, part-time mayor of St. Anthony, a community of 8,400 that sits on the northeastern corner of Minneapolis.

"When the city crews plowed the streets after a snowstorm, Randy would go out and thank them," City Manager Michael Mornson said. "He was high-energy, a very positive guy."

Burnett County Sheriff Dean Roland said the control tower at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport intercepted a mayday call from Hodson shortly before 4 p.m. Thursday. Hodson radioed that he was having engine trouble and was looking for an open field to attempt an emergency landing, Roland said.

"He found an open field, which had not been hayed and had tall grass about waist deep," Roland said, adding that officers got the first report of a plane crash at 4:03 p.m. from someone who called 911.

There were no eyewitnesses, but Roland said one passerby reported hearing what sounded like a racing aircraft engine before the plane went down about 120 miles northeast of the Twin Cities near the Oakland Township intersection of Otis Road and County CCC.

Roland said the plane appeared to have broken apart on impact, leaving debris scattered over an area 200 feet long and 50 feet wide.

The crash was being investigated Friday by the Federal Aviation Administration, the National Transportation Safety Board and Cessna officials. Hodson'* body was taken to a funeral home near the crash site for an autopsy and toxicology tests, both standard procedures.

Last weekend, Hodson reported the theft of a 1966 Pontiac GTO, the legendary muscle car, which he said was taken from his garage while he was out of town. He told the Pioneer Press for an article published Tuesday that owning a classic GTO, valued at $80,000, was a lifelong dream that he fulfilled when he acquired the vehicle several years ago.

St. Anthony police said Friday that the theft continues to be investigated and that the car has not been recovered.

Hodson had been employed since last November as director of intelligent transportation systems for Short Elliot Hendrickson, a Minneapolis-based engineering and architectural consulting firm. Before that, he worked for more than a decade at Electronic Design Company of Shoreview, where he was a vice president for sales, according to family sources.

Hodson was elected to the five-member St. Anthony Village City Council in 2000 and a year later was appointed mayor when the position became vacant. He was re-elected this year to a four-year term.

Hodson grew up in Farmington and played football on the local high school team before attending Bemidji State University, where he also played football, according to family members. He later transferred to the University of Minnesota, but left without a degree in 1978, according to university records. However, he was recorded as taking classes at the university last spring.

Roger Anttila, a family friend, said Hodson and his wife, Jolene, celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary last month.

"He kept a busy pace, with lots of interests, and he was enthusiastic about all of them especially his family," Anttila said.

A daughter, Stephanie, 22, graduated from Concordia University in St. Paul last spring, Anttila said. Their son, Christopher, 18, graduated from high school in the spring.

In addition to his wife and children, Hodson is survived by his parents, Ivan and Sally of Farmington; a sister, Lori Cummings of Eagan; and his grandmother, Marjorie Haag of Austin. He was preceded in death by a brother, Robert.

Funeral arrangements are pending.
