Yet another RX-7 stolen in Hillsborough County, FL

http://www.rx7club.com/showthread.ph...11#post3852311

Today, my car was stolen in the parking lot at work. It happened sometime between 11 AM and 1 PM, but I didn't discover it missing until almost 4 PM when I went to drop something off. I know it happened before 1 PM because a co-worker said they didn't see it when they went to lunch and thought I must have drove something else today.

The car didn't have that many performance parts on it, but if you come across someone selling a Koyo radiator, a Sony CD player and three VDO gauges, you should be suspicious, LOL.

I'm sad and pissed as hell obviously, but I just hope they find it. I can replace and rebuild, but I'd really like to have MY car back.

The car is a white 1991 Mazda RX-7 non-turbo. The Florida tag reads "WANKEL", so that isn't very easy to hide. Other than that, there are no distinguishing features on the car.

I guess it was someone who knew my pattern. I always park in the same spot at work.

Just last week a 10th AE RX-7 was stolen in Southern Hillsborough and found the next day minus the hood, seats, engine and transmission. I'm willing to bet the two thefts are related.

Someone who knew RX-7s well wouldn't have a hard time stealing one I imagine.

Sorry to hear that bro. I hate knowing when someone steals a car they are invading your privacy and in your personal space. What's with all the jacked RX7s? Are parts that expensive?

what part of town was it stolen in? i will be sure to keep an eye out. did you have any dents or aftermarket rims, bumper stickers? do you know the vin? any other aftermarket parts like exhaust that we could be looking out for? chances are if they are driving it the license plate will be swapped.

Sorry to hear this man. This always sucks.

Worst part is, it maybe somebody who knows rx-7s very well, and possibly a fellow owner. What an ***.

Considering this happened nearly a year ago I wonder what ever became of it.
