Over the course of four days, Marc took it upon himself to go find his car. He teamed up with a friend to drive through popular “drop zones” where stolen vehicles are often recovered. He took to his bike to start his stakeouts.
Convinced that his car was too nice to just chop up, his bet was the thieves would go cruising. Luck was with him. The car came back within 7 blocks of where it was stolen. Unfortunately, Marc was on his bike, and couldn’t keep up with the car.
Marc was ready the next time. On his second stakeout (this time using a borrowed truck), he tailed the culprits. Four days after losing the car, and one drawn out police chase later, he had his car back and the suspects in custody.
We all have different reasons for wanting to stay connected to your car. Maybe it’s to keep track of a loved one, whether the loved one is the person in the vehicle or the vehicle itself.
Marc’s adventure makes for a great story, and you can find the full version at www.pontiacparisienne.net. However, even Marc would prefer to not have to go through such an ordeal again.
Vinsnap is working on making it easier than ever to stay connected with your car, and soon you won't have to do your own stakeouts.
