I certainly can't be without my ride for a week so I am paying the money and then waiting on the check. Everything went smooth as far as talking to the police and the insurance people. I put the locking lug nuts on the two remaining rims..
For the first time in my life I wish I had the "Boot" to put over my rim.

Seriously, Maybe put an ad in the newspaper for exactly what was stolen- then .... follow up=> doesn't matter if they are yours or not someone might have to explain where they got them, and the person before that and so on back down the line- If nothing else you can cause so trouble.

If you want to know what I really think, just ask!

I dug up this old post because I had a similar situation occur to me; and it's even Thompson related (somewhat.)
I get a call from PK. My Thompson is ready to ship home. All I need to do is send him a check.
To quicken the process, I sent the check to him FedEx. On the way back from the FedEx office, some A$$#OLE turns left in front of me (in an intersection) and destroys my car. I loved my car; it was an '86 Mustang convertible that had over 392,000 miles on it. It was like Al Bundy and his Dodge; inseparable!
Turns out this guy has no drivers license, no insurance, his registration is bogus, and he already had warrant out for his arrest that was issued in 1998!
So, I get stuck with the bill. The insurance company will only pay the bluebook value, which isn't much for an '86 Ford.
The good news is, they actually caught the guy (after he left on foot) and this guys warrant was a paternity warrant. He gets to pay for eight years worth of child support.
The other good news is that Tommy will be coming home soon.
Let's hope this "buzzard luck" ends soon!
