  1. Green 1929 Ford Model A Roadster reg BF7875 was stolen from a layby on the A449 between Ross on Wye & Much Marcle on Sunday 18th March 2018. The car, which had been competing in the Vintage Sports Car Club Herefordshire Trial on the Saturday was parked up in the layby on a trailer. Due to adverse weather the owner deemed it unsafe to continue his journey towing the car so left it in the layby. When he returned to collect the car on the Sunday, it along with the trailer had gone. Witnesses saw the car still in the layby at 16:15 on Sunday so it was taken after that time. The car is completely standard & is green with black fenders & beige wire wheels
  2. Silver Mk3 Capri 2L Laser reg D418OTW was stolen off the driveway of a house in the village of Earls Colne in Essex at around 11:30am on Thursday 15th February 2018. The car has been off the road for around 10 years so isn’t mint. No clear pictures of the car exist but Google Maps images show it to have rust & debris on the bodywork. Restoration of the car was due to begin this month. The car is on SORN. The chassis number is WF0CXXGAECGS35515 It’s been reported that the car was taken using a 52 plate white dual axle Ford Transit truck. Anyone with any information can contact Essex police on 101 or 01245 491491
  3. White Sierra XR4i was stolen from an underground parking area in the Jewellery Quarter of Birmingham during the early hours of Saturday 10th March 2018. The car is totally original apart from the stereo. The car is white with grey skirts & has a red sun strip on the top of the front windscreen. It has a small amount of corrosion around the leading edge of the sunroof & has overspray of waxoil under the front valance. The electric mirrors & speaker selectors don’t work & the gas struts for the rear hatch have failed so don’t hold the boot open. These should make the car recognisable. The car has recently been put back on the road & has 4 new tyres fitted. The car is registered to a doris who is seriously ill & has been in her family for over ten years so holds great sentimental value to the family. There is a reward for any information leading to the recovery of this vehicle. Anyone who has any information can contact the owners son Russell on 07708610365 or West Midlands Police HQ on 0345 113 5000 or via 101 & quote crime reference number 20BW54839AL18
