Unhappy Cold Winter (Left on bricks in Brick City)

Its been a cold, cold winter....

About 3-4 weeks ago I went up to Newark to watch my Eagles advance to the playoffs with a win over the Cowboys. I ended up staying the night at my friend's apartment, which is located downtown. I've stayed their multiple times since September, and I always had the feeling that when i wake up in the morning my wheels would be gone, even though this is a relatively "safe" area compared to the rest of Newark. People thought I was paranoid, but I know Newark (I mean it is home to the movie New Jersey Drive) and these muta****as are ruthless. Well... when I went out to get my car the next morning, it was sitting on bricks.

But finally after a long month of no G8, and a V6 Camaro rental ... My car is back!

Wheel locks are a must for me. I've run them on every car I've owned. I figure they're cheap insurance. They may not necessarily stop someone from stealing your wheels if they REALLY want them, but it'll make most people move on to an easier target.

I thought the GT wheels weren't that sought after, guess any wheel is vulnerable in that city. And yea insurance was a savior, total quote was $9K....

Yeah i had my insurance come out to appraise and document my camaro wheels the figure was ridiculous. front wheel no sensors or center cap $748 rear wheel $836 no clue where they got their numbers, but im glad i did it. Now i know im covered if anything happens. My friends car was torched by some scumbag cause he couldnt steal the wheels. Witnesses who called the cops saw the whole thing go down.

The GT wheels were $1000 a piece, $4K for a set of stock wheels is insane to me, and that was without the tires and sensors.

Torched... That **** musta been crazy.

I've always wondered about stealing rims. I mean logistically that isn't as simple as smashing a window and grabbing a GPS from the roof.

Man that's sickening to see. I hope they catch those bastards. Did the underside get damaged when the towing company dragged it onto their rollback?

I doubt they will be caught. But the under body was fine. We put wooden blocks on each rotor and moved it gingerly onto the bed. The muffler tips scraped the ground for a second, but that was it. I shoulda bought some spares to get it towed properly; but we nig rigged it and got the job done.
