Help a Hoon


So last night, Jason Torchinsky’s beloved 1973 VW Beetle was stolen from in front of his Los Feliz home. Check out the details of the crime over at Jalopnik, and if any LA area Hoons see a yellow Beetle (not a Super) with a pair of blue stripes and possibly two semi-flat tires, be a pal and give your local constabulary a ring.

    Let's all keep an eye out! We must stick up for our fellow Hoons! I really hope they'll catch the b*stards that took Jasons beloved Beetle!

    Hmm… Is Mr. Foose filming another season of Overhaulin'?
    Doubtful, since they've already done a Bug.

    Probably already in Mexico, where it will blend right in. Sadface.

    I think this is a perfectly OK moment to link to Jalopnik.
    I hope they find the car and catch the thieving bitches. You know, they used to hang horse thieves because you were stealing a person's transportation and means of livelihood. When I'm king, this policy will be reinstated for cars.

      Agreed on both counts. I'm still not clicking the link, as I think I have enough info here, but as car guys/girl, we gotta have each other's backs.
      I'll keep an eye out in case it makes its way north…

    Hopefully it's just some tow company that snatched it, thinking it was abandoned due to the flat tire(s).

      That's what I'm hoping, too

        As am I, very sad Jason, that car meant a lot to you.

    Well, on the bright side it shouldn't be too hard to spot.

    This sucks beyond belief.
    He's one of the reasons I still visit that place. I'm looking forward to reading his tale of reunion with said Beetle.

      He got it back! It's missing the engine, roof rack, and sort of banged-up though.
