No way, if it was real the ninjas would have broke wide before the burban even made the shoulder. The heat would have had a foot chase to contend with

If you have ever had a stolen car found, it sucks! I had my first new car stolen after owning it 13 days. They found the car missing airbags and a radio. But the car was never right. Sold it a year later.

before that G.C. was even out of the shop another one came in with the same type off theft. just with this one, not only did they do everything i already listed, they also damaged the upper and lower dash panels. to make it even worse for this customer, about 8 months ago while this G.C. was sitting in her driveway, thieves did this same thing but also stole her wheels.
i have been seeing a lot of theft jobs lately.
