UPDATE!

Remembered I had an ezpass in the car and called to cancel it this morning. When I called I found out it had been used yesterday morning (day of theft) at 3am at a toll booth headed north. This gave me a pretty good idea the car was in Manchester. Went searching for a bit this afternoon and got a call it had been recovered.

From what I've gotten so far it was picked up in Manchester and the person(s) driving it were arrested. Don't know specifics but hopefully I'll find out more tomorrow.

After much back and forth with multiple police departments I got it released, checked it out, found no damage and drove it home.

:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

While some things were missing from the car. Nothing of value was taken, the registration was still in it, and they even left half a pack of menthols....

Although I did get the initial call from the police, I also got facebook messages and texts from a friend of a friend of a friend who spotted it while the thief was being arrested and snagged this pic. Thanks to everyone who kept an eye out!

I know this isn't a regional forum, and I did post in the new england forum, as well as some subaru websites. But I figured the more exposure the better.

This morning my rallycross car was stolen from my grandparents driveway in Nashua NH. It was taken somewhere between midnight and 5am. It is the least inconspicuous vehicle ever and shouldn't be hard to spot. It isn't worth anything, doesn't have any nice parts, look like crap, but I want it back.

Keep an eye out and if you see anything please call/text me at 978 237 0840.

The picture below is slightly different than how it looks now but very similar. Only changes being both bumpers are now black and there are two large black squares on both front doors. Both front seats are purple corbeau seats.

Please spread the word to anyone in the area. The more eyes the better chance. Thanks!

Was it parked on the curb on garbage day?

That is what you get for leaving your purse and extra key in there. Just pray that Killer makes it back in one piece.

There's your answer.

Someone either wanted those for their own car or will sell them for a quick buck.
Potentially, but in similar fashion to the rest of the car, they are faded, slightly ripped, old seats I snagged on craigslist for $40. In fact I made brackets for the drivers seat but was just mocking the passengers up. It's just sitting on the passengers floor. :laugh:

Is there such thing as a mercy steal?
TCL on point as usual. While I hadn't painted it yet, the new suspension, clutch, shift linkage, valve cover gaskets, plugs and wires actually had It running pretty well.

Some of these comments are great.

Sorry to hear. Chances are the thieves know the car and that you rallycross it. They more than likely thought "hey, there's an ugly car that I know the owner races. It must be fast."
