ON SUNDAY 4 October 2015 my Shell Yellow HJ GTS Monaro coupe (rego: AA 28 FP) was stolen from outside my house. I have owned Monaros for the past 36 years. This is the second time I have had one stolen.

The feeling when you discover your car is gone is indescribable. The only way to stop these thefts is for everyone in the modified car world to refuse to purchase parts they suspect to be stolen, and to refuse to buy cars with dodgy provenance (altered compliance plates, engine numbers and chassis numbers).

If we all stand together on this issue there will be no market for stolen cars and parts, and I suspect the theft of modified cars will be substantially diminished.
