Default CW 1998 ITR stolen in San Jose, CA

Hello All,

I wish i would have been here under other circumstances, but my beloved ITR was stolen last night from Japan Town in San Jose,CA. It is a CW 1998 ITR with a front end conversion and CW JDM ITR rims. I have a sticker on the back windshield "YOUTH" and a white Ghost sticker on the front windshield. The License plate is 5GNP949. If anyone catches a glimpse of it, please contact the police.

Thank you in advance,
Leon

In a word: Exposure.

There are more residents/members in NorCal than ITR owners.

Good news!

my car was found 2 days after it was stollen. My car was not stripped, but I did end up losing misc. items such as my floor mats, radio face, iPod, registration and insurance card as well as a vintage 35mm camera(trip 35).

The thieves managed to break into my car with what appeared to be a slim jim and used a master key(according to the police). There was no damage to my ignition or anything under the hood, but my battery was disconnected and for some reason all my oil has seemed to disappear. My engine will not turn over and I am having trouble trying to figure out what has happened. I will have to have a mechanic come look at it some time soon.

Overall, it was a very fishy recovery in the sense that the thieves for some reason put my autolock back on the brake pedal(I put it on the clutch), avoided taking my rims while having the wheel locks, and avoided taking my CF roof liner or carbon and ITR interior parts for that matter. I did notice that they started removing my headlights but for some reason they halted in their tracks to which I am grateful for.

I am very grateful to have found my car in the condition it was, since so many other people have found their car in worse condition. Thank you all for your concern and comments.

Merry Christmas,
Leon

Wow! That could have been way worse. Glad you got it back as whole as it was...that C5 would normally be long gone, in some unwary kids hatch.

Did you not have your autolock on when your car was stolen?
