Some things are incredible. Almost exactly a month ago we have one in Leipzig stolen Saab 900 reported. It was not the first theft of a classic Saab, because last year three cult Swedes disappeared without a trace. This time around, the community reacted quickly, and in just a few hours, it was featured on all forums and blogs in the Czech Republic, Scandinavia, Italy, Holland, Poland and SU.
Apparently, we were successful and have taken the thieves the fun of their prey. Because three weeks later, the Saab was back at the owner. Owner Hagen reports as follows:
“My red Saab 900 has just appeared in the neighboring street! Exactly three weeks after it was stolen. My son (6) came up the street with Grandpa and almost casually told me that my car was parked there. I couldn't believe it, but it really was.
License plates (L-TU900) and the green sticker, Becker radio and amplifier as well as the whole loose content (child seats, heated exterior mirrors etc. - what you just have lying around) of the car are missing. But the tin is intact and it still drives. Of course, I called the police beforehand and didn't touch anything. They didn't take any fingerprints. There will also be no handwriting comparison, although the “user” on an old Skandix invoice (the only snippet that was still in the car) said a disgraceful “Sorry!” have left behind. On the bill are two manhole seals that were still in the trunk and of course are gone too ... ”
Was it because of the quick reaction of the community that made the Saab or its individual parts unsalable? We don't know and can only puzzle over the motives. The main thing is: the 900 was back with the owner a few days ago. And that's good.
