Friend's 2008 Corvette Z06 stolen

Posting this here since I know there are a lot of CASC members across Ontario.

Sometime during the night of August 1st, red 2008 Corvette Z06 with plates "BZND 930" and really dark tinted windows, was stolen from Stevenson Specialty Cars in Port Perry.

Window was smashed (probably to get at the parking brakes) and car was towed by a white truck with "Top Towing" on it from the security video. Along with the Corvette taken, a Ford Turino was also stolen.











If this doesn't belong here, moderators can delete. Just trying to get the word out so people are aware, small chance that perhaps one or both cars have been spotted.

Re: Friend's 2008 Corvette Z06 stolen

I did a search on towing companies, did not see a "Top Towing", but there is a company called "Tip Top Towing". Is it possible that part of the name was covered over ?

I hope the cars are recovered, people that steal things are a POS !!!

Re: Friend's 2008 Corvette Z06 stolen

Saw that also, did take a look at Tip Top Towing and all their trucks are red and one black from whatever photos they have online.

Hopefully he does get the car back with minimal damage in the next few weeks, if not, it's probably good as gone unfortunately... probably various corvette parts going up for sale or car shipped out of country.

Re: Friend's 2008 Corvette Z06 stolen

Lot's of "contraband" luxury and perf cars show up in various countries around the world - the most likely worst case outcome for this car

So sorry to hear about the theft...

Re: Friend's 2008 Corvette Z06 stolen

Brutal.

Best I can do as a fellow 'Vette owner (specifically a C6 Z06) is keep an eye out for any signs of a "complete part-out".

Man, I must be a little naive and forget the world we live in ..... I almost "forget" that car theft is still a thing?!

Perhaps a bunch of us can have a meeting at his property to discuss options.

Unfortunately they found the vette yesterday in a residential garage in Ajax being chopped. Engine already gone.

Re: Friend's 2008 Corvette Z06 stolen

glad to see the z06 was recovered. I'll bet that if we allowed the death penalty for car theives and drug dealers, we'd see a dramatic change in society. How about one better, let the victim choose the punishment.

MF car thieves deserve to die- its in the bible

Re: Friend's 2008 Corvette Z06 stolen

So the latest and probably final update. It is being handled through the insurance company. Cops are trying to pull of prints off the car of course. No idea where the engine is, nobody's talking of course. Long gone. Even if they found the engine, the entire wiring harness in the car would need to be replaced as everything was quickly cut.

Rumour is that somebody posted a selfie on facebook with the two stolen cars but was quickly taken down. Nobody grabbed a screenshot of it unfortunately.

Hope Durham Regional finds the rest, haven't heard of any further arrests but I'm sure they're working on taking down this auto theft ring.

Re: Friend's 2008 Corvette Z06 stolen

Great, so now the poor owner has a f'd up Z06, and some a$$hole has a useless engine that they will have a tough time selling on the up-and-up locally, or it'll appear suspiciously in some project.

I hope for the thief's sake that the valve guides are shot (like most un-treated LS7's) and the engine drops a valve the first time it's run in whatever vehicle it finds its way into and blows a hole through the block. Will make nice coffee table after that.

Re: Friend's 2008 Corvette Z06 stolen

I wonder if the guy they caught in the tow truck is out on bail already ?
