    Default Need help: Stolen Race Items!!!

    I received this email from NASA:



    Be on the lookout for STOLEN RACE ITEMS



    Dear NASA Participant,



    Please forgive this extra email, but one of our NASA racers had all his stuff stolen. We are trying to help out. Here are the details:



    Kevin Nichols’ truck and trailer were stolen. They recovered them, but the content were gone. Here’s a list. If you can identify any of this stuff for sale, please call the authorities ASAP. If these guys are not caught, you could be next. Please cross post on forums and pass on this email, as well.



    Thank you for your help.

    Kevin lives in SLO, hes actually a very good family friend of mine and runs with SV quite a bit. Its a real shame about the theft. The truck and trailer were taken from the race shop in Dublin. So if ANYBODY in the bay area sees any of this stuff come up for sale on craigslist or what not please do not hesitate to call authorities.

    Thieves are some of the lowest life forms on the planet. I hope they get caught and the property gets recovered.

    Words cant describe how much I hate thieves. Seems like every year or so we hear of such a story. Wish there was a way to keep it from happening.

    UPDATE:
    So I talked to Kevin Nichols today apparently, the vehicle was found but it had "drug user" damage. All the stickers were removed with a chisel, also apparently there is front end damage from what seems to be a collision. Those were the obvious issues don't know what else is in there. Authorities were tipped off when a man came into a BMW dealership trying to sell "race car parts."

    The car was recovered but all the wheels and tires are still missing. So if everybody could keep an eye out in the bay area(possibly browsing craigslist) for the following items:

    4x 15x7 Rota RB wheels with Toyo RA1s
    8x 15x7 D-Force wheels with Toyo RA1s
    5x 15x8 TR Motorsport wheels with Hankook C5s
    4x Unmounted New Shaved RA1s
    Spacers 4x5mm, 4x10mm, 4x15mm, 4x 20mm
    4 Brembo Rotors
    PFC Front Pads
    8x Tire totes
    Car Cover
    Nitrogen Tank, regulator, hose and guage and fitting
    2x 20lb Lead Ballast
    Tool Bag Craftsman
    Radio fittings Harness and Antenna
    Traqmate Data Acquistion
    I/O Port Camera Mount
    CoolSuit, Hoses, mount,
    Pop up Canopy
    Gas Can
    Chrome Extinguisher

    please contact Kevin Nichols at nichols.kevin@att.net

    Thank you.

    Apparently there was more than one person involved Kevin said the suspect will tell the police who has the stuff so he can avoid prison time. Screw that! Lock that bastard up for being an involved in the first place! He was just stupid enough to go to a dealer and try and sell used race car parts. As if nobody would notice. Damn crack heads....

    Idiot thieves. No deal should be made. Lock them up for a long time. Glad they at least found the car.
