thieves
Ok, thought I would put this up here as the Portland Police seem to be worthless.
I have had thieves rip the siding off my shop and steel over $10,000 in parts.
a lot of my stuff is on Craigslist right now, all by the same guy.
I just discovered tonight that my van was broke into, and all the rest of my VW parts were stolen too.
had a lot of new parts to rebuild my cars, all gone now.
I guess I just wasted several years of my life working 12 hour days and lots of OT to buy the parts I needed to have descent car someday.
the list is long but here goes some of it.
white 70-71 deck lid with drains
new rear window with defrost  for a 70
Kennedy  stage one clutch with disk
Steve Tims stage one heads new in box for 90.5
Rebuilt dual port heads, and a set of rebuilt baby weber carb
another set of baby weber carbs
a new progressive downdraft weber set up
a new flat four shifter in the box.
a bellhousig from a van, and a  starter
some stock dual port heads
one CB performance Street Eliminator head, heavy port and polish on this one had a scary valve covers with vents brazed on then
one weber 44 IDF with stock dual port intake, two more webeer 44s in boxes

Just remembered some more stuff from my van they took.
had two boxes of new P&Ms for 1641 builds, one Mahle and one China.
a fresh rebuilt set of 041 heads with bigger valves put in, cut for 90.5
A box with all the rest of my 1641 rebuild parts, new revmaster crank,  rods, straight cut timing gears, Engle 164100am cam, and lifters.
new CB front full weight pulley.

I guess this puts me out of the VW hobby for good now.

Its going to take several years of working OT just to get some of my stuff replaced.

Wow.
Sorry to hear of this kind of loss.
I dislike stupid thieves as well....
The worst performance mod is whatever you're limited to because you convinced yourself (or others) that anything bigger or faster was too extreme for a street car.

That's horrible news. Friggin' pisses me off. We get a little of that sort of stuff from time to time but nothing like that. Sorry you are going through it.
