I would think most cars stolen down there go to Tijuana.

Hope not for you, wishing you the best in it's safe - whole return!

People sometimes steal cars for transportation rather than to sell...

I had a friend back in high school who would leave the keys of his car in the ignition hoping someone would steal it. No one ever did to his dismay. His parents promised him a new one if that happened. We did do some Evel Knievel type stunts in it and took it like a champ. It seemed to have 9 lives and then some.

Oh, and to the OP, sorry for your situation. Hopefully it will turn up back in your hands.

Without the 25 gallon tank, yes. The tank adds about $5000 though.

A friend of mine left the engine running in his car at the ER at hospital while helping someone. The car was stolen (really a junker). About two weeks later it was found in the hospital parking lot with the keys in it. It had been driven over 1500 miles..

So, obviously, someone needed it for transportation (happened in Chicago).

Kinda funny that they brought it back to where they found it, Andy.

Did they at least refill the tank?

Similar thing happened with my parents in the late 70s. They always left the car unlocked, keys in the ignition overnight, as we live in a rural area. Woke up one day and the car was gone. It turned up several days later at a mall about 25 miles away with over 2,000 miles put on it. They figured somebody took a trip to Florida.
