Subject: Stolen 1972 Pontiac Ventura

1972 Pontiac Ventura 2D
VIN/2Y27M2L113641
LIC/5YOR757 CA
Color: "Huggin Orange"
Where stolen:  Central Park Place, Brentwood
Date of Theft: 12/21/2011
Reporting Agency and their Case #: Brentwood PD Case # 11005247
Reporting Agency Contact Number: 925-778-2441
Further description of the vehicle: 1968 Pontiac engine 400 bored 40 over. (400 cu in 6.6L V8) with four-barrel carburetors.  There are additional identifiers that can be provided if the vehicle is located.
Additional Information: My 1972 Pontiac Ventura was stolen out of my garage on 12-21-11 in the early AM.  I need your help as I doubt very seriously that my car is still in the East Bay, Brentwood area.  If you spot any “Huggin Orange” Pontiac Venturas or a Ventura that you suspect might have been altered, or know of one being altered, or notice one being advertised in your local paper, I'd appreciate your cooperation. I would ask you to try and identify any distinguishing features and call me directly or snap a few photos with your Cell phone and forward them to me for identification. If spotted, you might call your local Police Department and report your findings and ask them to contact the Brentwood (Contra Costa County) Police Department. Again, I should be able to identify the auto even with altered plates and or different paint etc. 

Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated, and I thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Hello Webmaster -

I would like to list a recently stolen classic car on your web page.  Unfortunately, I cannot find any pictures, although I was sure I had a file. All I can find are pictures of the transmission rebuild. Photo pictured here is not actual vehicle, but similar vehicle.  Here is the data:

1976 Dodge Colt 2D
Color: Yellow
VIN: 6M21K65800570
License: 3097FDP (CA - Handicap Plates)
Where Stolen: Sorrento Valley Coaster station parking lot; North San Diego
Date of Theft: 10/22-24/11 Weekend (Discovered and reported 10/25/11 am)
Reporting Agency and their Case #: San Diego PD Case #11305297T
Reporting Agency Contact Number: 619-531-2000
Further description of the vehicle:  Clean car; two-door sedan; converted from manual to auto-trans; custom components labeled under hood; repainted around 2007 bright yellow; black interior.
Unique Identifiers: Red under engine pan. Transmission parts images available. Handicap license.

Like other classic car owners, we have a lot of time and money invested in this car - used by a handicapped driver to commute 3 miles from the train station to his work site. We appreciate the opportunity to list our loss on your web page. I'll continue to look for a digital image of the car.
