LOLOL, inclosed cars, that use to happen to the open ones too! LOL, My father would go to the train yard or drive to another dealer far away to get special cars for customers all the time. Some dealer down in Santa Cruz has an Indy Pace car replica Regal that his customer wanted? He and I drove down there to get it with me driving the Pace car home. And there weren't many of those in those days people thought it was the real thing! But I remember going to a train yard (I have no idea where it was) with my dad to get a car and there were a couple there that bums had lived in across country, this was the late sixties as I remember.

Back in the 50's - early 70's my dad owned chev-olds dealership in a small town in New Mexico, I'm not too sure of the details of how this came about, but the dealership had ordered a new Olds holiday 98, convertable from another dealer in another nearby town( I think the year was maybe 1962 or so) They wated 2 or 3 weeks for the car , then started calling to find out where it was and when they could expect to take delivery, the dealer that they bought it from told my dads dealership that one of their shop guys was suspose to deliver it to them 2 weeks ago, so they started asking questions about where it is now? come to find out the shop guy had been driving like it was his, all that time, and telling everyone it was his,, he put quite a few miles on it well over 500 as best I remember,,
needless to say he lost his job and was lucky he didn't go to jail for car theft,,
I think his dad might have had some pull in the community,,
If I had done something like that I would still be in jail,

I can not imagine spending the time and money on such a thing but I sure can see why someone would and I can certainly appreciate the craftsmanship, that sucker is beautiful.

We had a dealership here in town that lost a few cars over a few months that a lot boy had kept the key to and came back at night and took them. Yeah, he went to jail.

I seen already where two guy's came test driver a car at a dealer I worked at,, They stopped at wal-mart to show his wife the car( told my boss she worked there),, One went in, And my boss and the other stayed in the car, The guy came out the store acting very mad,,

My boss said ..What's wrong ?? He said his wife was mad about him buying the car...

When they came back my boss new something was up and went to wal-mart and asked the key maker did someone just come in to get these key's made ?? Yes sir !!!! But I didn't have the blank's to make them...

When my boss came back and told me that...
He said he was planning to come back that night to steal the car..

Some times it almost seems like the thief deserves a trophy you know what I mean. He needs to go to jail but damn that guy deserves a trophy for a shelf in his cell.
