A nice guy in our Santa Clara Valley Model T Ford Club, Don Azavedo, had a great lose recently.
This morning we discovered my tow vehicle, enclosed trailer and 1911 EMF had been stolen from my home in Pittsburg. Please be on the look out.
Here is some more information on the stolen items. Everything was at my home in Pittsburg. Police reports have been made.
The truck is a white Ford F250 1996 with a white camper shell. It is a 2-door cab and a half with a short bed. License Plate #5M67546. Mileage is about 40,000. Very clean and loaded.
The enclosed trailer is 16' x 8' x 7' with a rear door ramp, tandem axle, with the large HCCA decal on the top right corner of the rear door. License #4GV7121 and is California permanent trailer tag. Trailer has an electric winch mounted inside. Trailer is black with aluminum fenders.
The EMF ia a 1911 5-passenger touring complete car black fenders and burgundy body, excellent brass with speedometer (Stewart & Clark 26). All brass have cloth covers. License # HC 4978. Engine # 22959.

This is a repeat of a previous thread:
By the way, I have reported this to the Western States Auto Theft Investigators (of which I am a member). They just need a reply from Don Azevedo to post this car on their web site.
Please pass on to Don that I will spread the word here in Portland Oregon.
They don't want the trailer or T. They want the F250, they are one of the most stolen vehicles. Bet it is in Mexico by now.
There was no T involved, it was an EMF.
The trailer with the car in it could be just sitting some place by itself if the F-250 is that hot an item.
I just saw the truck on Nov 6th, a real well kept beauty. Looked like new.
Just shows to go ya, don't leave all that stuff hooked up and ready to go.
