    Re: Cars Stolen from Show

    some people at shows have loads of history on display too, sometimes bits with their home address on. I've always found this a bit risky to show to strangers.

    Re: Cars Stolen from Show

    Yeh i saw an article in a mag about classic thefts, seems they are becoming easy targets for the thiefs, cheap scappers bought for id the car nicked and id changed, simples. not good news.
    If quitters never win, and winners never cheat, then who is the fool who said "Quit while you're ahead"

    might be a good idea to imobilise your vehicles when on show

    There's some intriguing comments on the original article.

    A few people aren't too convinced about the facts...
    The clue is in the name

    You would think it would be things inside a open car at risk at a show if i take mine to a show it will be locked at least .shame for the people its worse than getting a normal replacable car stolen.

    good idea, but what if i weare some nice clothes, have a very nice range rover with trailer and i just load them onto it and leave. i bet not even one will ask me if the car is mine when the owner or friends of owner arent near.
    teach your children to think, not what to think.
    I am different, just like you.

    Re: Cars Stolen from Show

    I read today that both cars were parked in the public car parking area. so very easy to steal. One was a TR5 the other a Rover

    Hi gramps,

    That sounds a lot more likely than being stolen from the showfield.

    This is another good reason you wouldn't want to take your ride to a show where you might not be allowed onto the showfield as the risks of theft or damage in the public car parks are so much higher.

    Cheers.

    Russ.

    Re: Cars Stolen from Show

    I was at the show, with a few guys from on here. The thing is if you aren't pre-booked they send you to the public car park (field) where maybe 10% of the cars there are classics/ yanks, so people wander around the car park as well as the show to look at the cars.

    Re: Cars Stolen from Show

    The ad says they are posted missing between 10am and 3pm ? nothing noticed ? where were the owners ?
    you can walk round the NATS showground , shoot the ****, have a burger, coffee, blah blah, empty the hopper and breeze round the traders in 5 hours.

    Yes its a shame about the cars and the fact they are nicked, especially the triumph, must be a niche market for the bits and everyone with one knows of others..
    The owners will never replace them or

    PS- Just read the post above by Capriac, agree when you bring the car park into play, easy target...
