    How about a board where we can post for Lost, Found and Stolen stuff. I'm sure people leave stuff behind at meets and such and a "STOLEN" board might help some people get stuff back. We have a place like that in our magazine for skydiving and it works out very well.

    GR8 idea if u ask me. I *hate* car thieves with a PASSION. Maybe we could make it a dual topic forum tho... Lost and found + security measures (alarms, brake pedal locks, hidden switches etc etc etc). That'd be a cool forum I think, especially with the rash of stolen K5s lately! /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

    Good idea on the forum type format thing! That way it would still be a discussion board. But a quick reference list of "Lost & Found" / "Stolen" added on the side could help in the quick recovery of those items. So maybe it could be a forum with a "JUMP TO" list. Items would be listed for say a period of so many weeks and then deleted or updated. People buying parts at swap meets or out of a publication or on line could reference the list before purchasing. On another note it's a good idea to make sure you engrave your VIN on many parts of your vehicle. Steve advised that he had found the VIN on his frame once he got all the undercoating off.
