Man that sucks.

Give us a list of big items, especially unique ones, to watch out for.

Keep an eye on craigslist and ebay. Craigslist seems to be the medium for laundering stolen parts around here. I know its paranoid, but i carve my initials discreetly on about everything.

Shitty thing to hear. Out of state plates probably didn't help.

What's a kid from the Appalachians doing parking his Miata in south central Harlem, anyway?

Damn that sucks. I wish you the best of luck finding the culprit.

Getting my **** stolen has always been in the back of my head

Intake mani and the built motor will be very hard to sell discretely and without it being obvious they're yours.

I'm really sorry to hear man. It would devastate me, and not due to the value of it, but all of the hard work I put into mine.

People just have no respect for each other anymore.
