FROM CORSA WEST:
Corsa West of Los Angeles Club member J.C. Salazar just had his 1965 Greenbrier van stolen out of his driveway in the early hours of March 10, 2021 in Sylmar, CA. Please help look for a 1965 Chevrolet Corvair Greenbrier Deluxe White with a red-orange belt stripe with original black and gold CA license plate IQF188, VIN R1265S100191. J.C’s. contact information is julcaes75@yahoo.com

Be aware JC’s van was backed into his driveway six feet from his bedroom window and had a car cover. The only thing left was a cut off cover and four tire marks were the van sat.

I see these stories on Nextdoor and Facebook.... It sucks. I have a GPS tracker in my Corvair now and - though there is a monthly fee - a few bucks a month doesn't seem to be such a bad deal when considering the alternative.

Here is the one I use: [amzn.to]. There are many others... it's just the one I found.

I got an email reply from Greg V. at SCC. He says there is NO news on the stolen Greenbrier. At this point it doesn't look good.

I'll add that every Corvair stolen in the L.A. area was parked in a driveway or on the street. When I got old car insurance they said "No garage, no coverage". Now I know why.

My relatives living in rural areas have had more thefts and break-ins than myself in the BIG city. Thieves everywhere - and when it takes the local sheriff a half hour to arrive in rural areas, the thieves take advantage.

Not much has changed regarding dishonest folks --- I recall the first automobiles with steering wheel locks were FORD model T's!!!!

Scumbags is also one of the reasons I left Los Angeles 15 years ago. There is CONSIDERABLY less scumbags, dirt bags, druggies, thieves, scoundrels, traffic, pollution, etc. here in small town SW Colorado. Oh, and taxes. But our gasoline lately has just hit $3.00 per gallon.

$3.20/gallon here, what's it hitting at other places around the country?
As for those other things you listed Tim, just what exactly are, scumbags, dirt bags, druggies, thieves, scoundrels, traffic, and pollution ? ? ? confused smiley

A Mel, that is just a partial list of big city America. Now I am back to watching the murder trial of George Floyd.

Well keep your stuff well lit up at night with plenty of bright lights. Helps create much darker shadows to lurk in. Plus you don't need to be hindered bringing your own personal flash lights etc. Make it easier for thieves that's my motto. We make our place as dark as possible outside. Who would waste time in a place that you are absolutely unfamiliar with in total darkness? They'll go to your neighbors place(the guy who listens to power company propaganda) because he has guard lights to protect some valuables on his property for sure! eye rolling smiley Mike

Mike, you are 100% ABSOLUTELY CORRECT ! ! !
Bright lights, and motion sensing security lights, are a sure way to alert thieves to the presence of valuables.
A buddy of mine is still trying to convince his recent arrival neighbors from Seattle, that their motion light is a guarantee that he will not investigate, or report an intruder on their property, when they are on trips back to the city.
No matter how many times he explains to them that he no longer even looks at their house because raccoons, and other nocturnal animals activate the light 100 times per night, they just keep turning it on when they leave for a week.
He tells them if the light was not on, and he saw flashlights bobbing around the house, then he would know it is trouble and call the Sheriff.
They just don't get it.
It is okay though, because we have zero crime rate here.
It is just funny to see the paranoia they bring with them from the city. grinning smiley
.
Just think about Watergate.
If those guys would have just walked in and turned on the lights, no one would have thought anything about it.
It would have simply been, "Oh, someone is working late tonight."
But no, they had to sneak around in the dark, and someone reported flashlights bouncing around in the dark, and called security. hot smiley
