Yeah, it is a honda but it is still missing. Read the Details. Thank you

very good friend of mine had his show car, the 24' enclosed trailer it was in, and the Dodge tow vehicle stolen from a hotel parking lot. He was in Kansas City for the USACi World Finals.

If any of you have friends, or contacts, or are members of forums with people in the KC area, could you please help spread the word about this to try and help find the truck, trailer, and car.

The show car was a green Civic with heavily modified interior and lots of high-end audio equipment, and had previously been featured on Horsepower TV during that show's own Civic project feature.

Here is the post from another forum...

Yessir. The great hood rats of Kansas City, MO strike again during USACi Finals.

Steven Head's DLS Civic including the trailer it was in, the Dodge 3500 Dually pickup hauling it and countless amounts of gear and tools was stolen from right in front of the Doubletree hotel. The Dodge is gray and has a topper on the back. Trailer is a white 24' enclosed trailer with "Team Audionizzle" vinyl decals on the sides.

Front desk says they saw two black guys walking around by it. Called the cops and when the dumbasses arrived a HALF HOUR LATER, it was gone.

PLEASE!!! If ANYONE saw ANYTHING or has ANY info whatsoever leading to the recover and/or arrest of said theives, give it to me ASAP! Steven Head is officially offering a $10,000 reward!

it is a 24' Continental Cargo with beaver-tail rear ramp
Model number is GAVH8.524TA3 , year 2003

UPDATE

KANSAS CITY! PLEASE HELP

One of the car owner's team was contacted by someone in the KC area that overheard some talk about stolen items, etc from the USACi show. He over heard them talk about a possible chop shop location. Approximately 2 blocks north of New Image Motorsports on Southwest Blvd. It's an unmarked warehouse type building. If anyone could check the area out and get back to me, it'd be GREATLY appreciated!

Please if you have anytime at all...check this out!

Sorry to hear that man!! By all means give Doug a call. I'm in Sedalia or I'd go look myself. I'd bet Doug would help a fellow board member out if asked.

Best of luck getting the property back and nailing those responsible! That Civic is tight :)

Sorry to hear about this!

Nothing ticks me off more than a worthless #$% theives!

In saying this, check and see if the hotel and or other surrounding building have on sight security camaras. I'm sure there is something that may assist you in finding the scumb bags who stole your buddies pride and joy. Otherwise, nice car and hope you guys get it back.

Did you notify the police with this new info? I have a friend that has a bar just down the street from there and I'll see if he might know something about that place. I'll see if I can run by there tomorrow after work, it's on my way home.

BTW, all of that audio equipment, wicked custom car and no alarm on the truck?:confused:

CAN YOU DIG IT!?!?!?!

An annonymous tip called in to the KCPD placed the car in St. Louis. KCPD coordinated with the St. Louis PD who eventually confirmed the car was at the location and recovered it.

Still no sign of the tow vehicle and trailor, but needless to say Steve is still a VERY happy man. They're on their way to St. Louis from KC as we speak to pick up the car. There is absolutely NO damage aside from the ground effects that were damaged when the cops put it on a flatbed.

Further details as events warrant!! Stay tuned.

THANK YOU!
