Angry Stolen Blue D90! Please Read!

Hello 4x4 enthusiasts. I'm writing you due to a really sad and unpleasant experience. Someone has stolen my pride and joy 1997 Land Rover Defender 90 right out of my back yard while I slept! The larceny occurred around 4am early Sunday monring, December 10, 2006 in the Hillsboro Village area of Nashville, TN. She was unlocked and parked in my back yard, but behind a double locked gate. If you see her, please phone me immediately! 615.429.4502. I'm offering $500 for information that leads me to her, and $1000 for information that leads to the arrest of the scum that took her from me! If you forwarded this email/message to someone who gets either of those rewards, I'll give you $100. The VIN is SALDV3243VA122379.

As I'm sure all of you know, these are extremely rare and pricey vehicles, so even if the insurance company gives me everything that I've put into her over the years, I can't exactly go up to the local dealer and buy a new one. So recovering her is the best I can hope for. Here's some pictures attached. These pictures were taken awhile ago, but she essentially looks the same. You enthusiasts know that you've always got at least one or two projects going on at any given time but this is basically the last state she was in.

She's a NAS D90 SW #2342, Arles blue with Alpine top, auto trans, with air conditioning and the 4.0L petrol engine with two of the four jump seats installed. She has about 97K miles on her and is due for an oil change. The front windshield has a large spidered crack on the passenger side that's about a foot wide. Of note are that she has black diamond plating armor on the hood wings, side sills under the doors, and rear wings above the rear wheels. The trail lights are IPF, both on the bull bar and the light rack. Of particular note is that she has a custom installed Pioneer AVIC Z1 GPS/Audio/Video system that sits in the center console where the switches for rear defrost and such used to reside. The cigar lighter is relocated into the top of the console next to the shifter and there are several more located inside the console under the hatch. She also has a duel battery kit, with the switch on the bottom left of the drivers dash. She still has my vanity plate, "OLD PUNK", with expired tags (Sept 05) using the old style plates, NOT the new green Tennessee hills plates. She also has the spare tire off the rear carrier and a lighted skull in the rear hitch socket. She's got an OME suspension kit, but if you're looking underneath her, then something even worse has happened! Again, if you see her, phone immediately! 615.429.4502.

CASH REWARD FOR INFORMATION LEADING TO HER RECOVERY AND/OR PROSECUTION!!!!

Thanks!

Cheers,
Scott

Thanks. I was in the process of posting this to tnrovers.com and lrx.com when I got your message. Any other places you think it would make sense?

"and is due for an oil change."

I see you still care about her. Sorry. :-(

wow. Pirate4x4.com is a great resource! Thanks. Wish I would've seen that one earlier. Yeah, not only was she due for an oil change, but I was going to have Lojac installed on her after the 1st of the year! Talk about rotten timing! =(

That is devastating. I'd canvas the area as far as you can and also get yourself on any local trails in case someone was joy riding it. It would be really difficult to drive that truck very far without being noticed.

Makes me want a lojack.

I called up all my buddies in Nashville and fowarded the pics. They will be on the lookout as most of them have spent quality time in my 90.

Can't they issue an Amber Alert!! I mean, it's just like loosing a child.

Besides, what the hell do you do with a stolen 90?

Good luck with your search, I hope she is returned to you soon.

not to be the bearer of bad news but about the only thing that i could come up with is ship it out of the country, with the d's there just isn't an easy way to wash the title bc so few are around, it might get registered as series maybe??

Yeah everyone I've talked to about this says that it's either going to get parted or it's over the border already. Thanks for the help in spreading the word guys. I haven't given up hope yet.

Now that is some serious BS. They can't get too far without it getting noticed.

Nothing. It's been one week. I talked to the cops on Friday and they are basically useless. I've checked all the usual places and haven't seen parts. I don't expect to see the whole car sold since it's too noticeable and pretty much every Land Rover enthusiast, parts supplier, and dealer knows that it's stolen. =(
