Stolen Calibra - P 599 FKP
« on: January 18, 2019, 18:39:03 PM »
I got back to Harpenden from work at around 4:20 this afternoon to find my beloved Calibra had been stolen. It was there at 8:30 this morning.

My Calibra is a V6 automatic with an Irmsher rear spoiler finished in a dark green being one of a limited edition supplied by Ogglesbys of Harpenden. It is slightly lowered, sitting on standard wheels and fitted with a stainless exhaust.


If you see it please call 999. Please also PM me - I am reluctant to post contact details as too many idiots haunt the Internet. Many thanks...

Very sorry to hear that zodiac.

Sounds like a nightmare I had.........all the emotions come into play and the pain of it was so real I woke up sweating.......I really feel sad for you.......I pray you will get your pride and joy back.

The thieving tow rags are despicable to say the least.  Club members are spread out across the U.K. and I have no doubt they will all do their utmost to help.......myself included.

I have written your description on paper and on my phone.........would you consider divaulging the Registration to look out for.

A very sad start to the  New Year.........keep us posted buddy.

Kind Regards

From Turbohead.

 :( Not any of us want to see when we get home from work and see our Calibra missing, I've had an immobiliser kit waiting to be fitted for a year - I'll wait no longer - I'll pull the battery tomorrow and fit it next weekend (and pull the fuel relay too).

Hope it turn's up soon - the Calibra enthusiasts is a smaller world these days - we'll look out for it

This is just terrible. After all the work you had done too! Hope it turns up, on FaceBook so lets see.....
Lewis Hamilton said that winning his first race felt better than having sex. Kimi's reply to that was, Maybe he never had sex.

Thanks Turbohead! Yes I have woken at odd times and gone to check my daily driver (old Jag) is still there. I had a lightly modded 1600 Escort stolen about 30 years ago (makes me feel old). When found the scumbags had only stolen the tools and wheels but totally trashed the car. What buzz they get from smashing the glass, slashing the seats and caving the roof in is outside the scope of my imagination!

Thank you. The suspicion is that it was taken away with a breakdown truck or similar as the battery was dead! If it was driven it would have had to be jump started.

Thanks. I have never really totted up the total amount spent - all I know is that if the worse happens I will only get a fraction back!

Hello zodiac

Any news from the police about your car..........I thought I would just say Hello to let you know that myself and indeed the Cc members are rooting for you.

I feel your losss and hope that you get some better news in 2019.......I have searched on line to see if any one is trying to make a quick sale.

During my searches for a P reg V6 automatic........there have been a few for sale so if the worst comes there are Calibra V6 cars for sale.

I don't use Facebook but you have a lot of Calibra owners looking.

I know it's a long shot but at least I feel I am doing something to help  :-\

Looking forward to hearing from you when you are ready.

Kind regards


Turbohead.

Thank for asking ALZ. Unfortunately nothing at all. I suspect it was probably illegal scrappers. I have now filed an insurance claim...
