Default theft alert: Pearl BRG hardtop in Little Rock

Lemme know if you see it, please. It has no headliner, no defroster, the black trim piece around the bottom is broken off on both sides in front of the silver latches, it only has front latches, there are two clear-coat scratches about 4"-long on the passenger side b-pillar, and its a VERY unique color:


Not only did they break a window, but they also stole it in the rain so I'm not a very happy person right now. I'm going to kill the ************ who stole it. I don't mean I'm going to find it and call the police...I'm going to MURDER the trash who stole it. They most likely think its a stock color and are dumb enough to advertise it.

Good thing I'm on stockers ATM, and not the 6ULs.

Good thing I parked it nose-in so they didn't see the intercooler. I was really relieved when it dawned on me that they didn't steal the car and I am pretty fortunate. I had to drive it to work only today, because my rental car is ready today. Man, I'm really angry.

That thing WILL turn up and it will be a pretty easy claim with that color.

Sucks, man.

Fack! I saw the headline and figured your whole car was gone. Makes me think I'd better look into agreed value insurance for my car. All I need is the car stolen and the insurance company only paying me for a 94 Miata. With hardtops being so valuable and easy to take I can't believe they aren't ALL stolen.

When you find the bastard dispose of everything. Don't make the mistake of taking a trophy. You don't want someone finding a thumb in your freezer! If you do take something, shellac it and use it in the open, like a keychain eg. Who would suspect anything if it's not hidden!

Lol at cueball!

Good luck. I ******* hate thieves and this is my greatest fear with my miata; having my hardtop stolen.

I'm down to help you murder the dickless pieces of ****.

Hey Hustler, throw up a WTB ad in the Little Rock CL. Say

WTB Miata Hard Top. Black preferred, but will consider other colors. Will pay fair market value, $900 for colors, $1,000 for black so I can cover my paint cost.

That way they don't think it is you and may try to flip it for a quick buck.

Sorry to hear.


This is why I don't park the miata anywhere public.

If you find the bastards that did it, there are people that will do whatever you want to them for a very fair fee....You dont have to get involved in any way

And I'm sorry about the top. I can only imagine your level of anger right now. I'd be ******* PISSSSED

Hustler. Are you still in Little Rock? You could ease the pain by buying this brand new looking HD HC DD bar for sale there for $100 on CL!

Roll Bar

Little Rock has always been a crime-ridden, rat-infested shithole. Drugs, car thefts and jackings, burglaries, and other crimes are constant there. They will likely come back for the whole car later. They get bolder once they've had a success. And they saw your boost gauge, so they know you've got turbo parts they can hock. Hell, I could crank mine with a screwdriver and a hammer if I didn't care about breaking the switch. Protect yourself.

That sucks Trey. Hope you find it. If not, the Mazda replacement value is pretty high so insurance should hook you up.

God damn...sorry to hear man.

I would break their teeth on a curb.

**** those sorry bastards.

Good luck catching them. I would think a WTB might fish them out. And that cheap rollbar might almost make you feel better.
