I received the message below from the Oakland Owners Club. I thought I would share it here to get the word out to as many old car guys as possible.
I received notice today that a 1915 Oakland was stolen out of Ohio. Blue with black fenders. Been in the same family for many decades.
Please put the word out to any family or friends that are in the car hobby to spread the word about this theft in case they hear or see anything about it being for sale or parts of it for sale.

What Dennis said ....
Post some pictures please !
The Oakland owners web site say that it was stolen out of a storage unit.
Stolen out of a Central Ohio storage unit on April 3rd.
Argh. Stuff like this ticks me off.
I hope they can find this car for those folks.
I belong to so few forums but how else can people help get the word out?
Ya know, back in the day, they hung horse thieves. Well, this car was from back in the day, so when they find the perp, I'll gladly supply the rope! Maybe even kick the chair out from under the bastard!
Hanging is too fast
Hanging can be nice and slow if no fall is involved.
Disassembly by cordless drill and ballpeen hammer could be drawn
out for weeks.
THAT is why you cannot borrow my cordless drill - any of hammers - my posthole digger - my shovels - my axe - my cordless sawzall - my hydrochloric acid - my industrial rubber gloves - my industrial respirator - my 55 gallon drums .....

Just what would we do with rubber gloves?
How about a belt sander massage, followed by a vinegar drip ?
(insert evil laugh here)
I got this email note today, so I am passing it on. Thanks to everyone that spread the word.
The 1915 Oakland belong to Rob Wilson has been recovered completely intact. Credit goes to all in the old car brotherhood. It seems that all the talk and chatter we did made it impossible for the thieves to sell the car. Thieves have been caught. No more details are being given to the public.
Thanks to everyone!
Steve, glad to hear the good news. No more details being given to the public 'cause they know WE'D have a public lynching!
nice....any details on who stole it and where they took it, etc?
