...........Rest assured I will be watching local forums and here. I pay for my ****, so should you..............



so basically you are accusing members of this board for stealing your stuff? members with a v6 swap can be counted with the fingers of 1 hand, or maybe two.... lol

This thread is full of win. You are awarded the Fail cup of win....




I'm not accusing anybody. I just find it very hard to believe someone would just randomly steal my car from my driveway expecting it to be swapped.

cars get stolen everyday, not often do 6gc get stolen, but if you were to go around talking the car up to people in your area (not saying you were, just an example) its as easy as someone following you to the storage area a time or two to know where it is. sucks that it happened man, but doubt any board member would drive to CT to steal your v6 parts.. your one of the only 6gc guys in CT.. parts are cheap enough, prob someone in your area. good luck with the rebuild man.

The worst is the harness end of the deal. Not looking forward to doing that again. I think I'll gladly pay someone this time who's reputable and wait the 10 days.

Luckily, they only took on the surface the conversion parts. I can get those. I don't know what else is gone as of yet, but when I get the car back, I guess I'll know then. Just not what I want to keep dumping money into. I could have had an Alltrac with all the funds out laid so far, and it guess that stings too.

Appreciate the kind words Cam.

I just hope you are not trying to imply that myself, Dustin and steff are in any way involved in your garbage pit.
If you are, have the balls to come right out and say it like a man. Then sit back and enjoy the show.

10/8: car located and brought to my uncle's. Flywheel is done and ready for pickup...but I'm too busy moving a motor and transmission (and most of my stuff too) from my house. No response from harness builder still, at thi point I'm reading the writing on the wall. I know he has a V6 project going on in a 6G himself, I'm assuming the worst.

Now, only 4 people on this board know the car stays at my house (and have seen it there), and maybe 2-4 other people outside of here know where the car was as well. That being said, I find it very hard to believe this was random. Parts were taken that would be a key factor to a V6 swap into a 1996-1999 Celica GT.


So what you're saying is people on this board know where your uncle's house is ?
And a guy who lives near you (doing your harness 6 months ago) is also doing a v6 swap ?

This story is just getting more and more unbelievable everyday...

Let me make it clear. I was in no way implying that ANYBODY here was involvemd my exact words were that I find it very hard to believe it was a random act. The car has been drivable and running since the end of November. The car is also registered to a PO Box. I apologize if people were thinking I was accusing anybody. Believe me, as I have told Manny, if I had any inkling that I knew exactly who was involved, their name would have been dropped and they'd be dealt with legally. Just seems like it was a targeted theft to both myself and the authorities involved.

That all being said, I am rebuilding the car, and this time using 100% reputable sources. Might even get around to fixing that busted ignition cylinder too.

Here's to whoever took my ****, may it serve you as well as it did me.

I'm done.

So far this whole page is of different people "misinterpreting" your "exact words", myself included because I am one of the people who you say 'knows where you live' and within the same sentence 'this was not a random act'. Just so you know I have no need for your garbage and don't see any reason to waste my gas or my life AGAIN for no reason that would benefit me. I guarantee Manny and Dustin feel the same. That rules out 3 of the 2-4 people on your suspect list. Good luck with the investigation.

I'm not going to lie, I have been following the work of the many v6 swapers that document it, but that being said this BY FAR has to be the oddest thread i have ever read. Why wasn't the car kept in secure storage, with lock n stuff. And the harness, why wouldn't you keep better track to where you are throwing money and where? Its not a complicated process, you can go to any pip boys or partsource ( if your Canadian like me) and get almost complete harness diagrams. Man i feel for ya, its a heart brake to be kept from your goals, and dreams. but. oh. my. god. stay on track, budget, focus 100%. -just saying- and 600+ for any harness is over paying.
