i live on the outskirts of Windermere in Cumbria
Just had my project mini 1275gt stolen from my drive way over the weekend plus loads of mini parts.
it was dark blue with white roof and 12" minilights.
i live in quite a rurual area with low crime rate.it was parked up a narrow drive out of view and hard to move.
is there much hope of finding these scum bags or is it just lost in parts????
my local police were extremely unhelpfull,stating maybe the council moved it !!!
they also seemed to think it was no big deal and haven't even been to see me about it.
anyone any look with getting minis back that have been stolen?

It's examples like this that get me worried - it's obviously a targetted theft for a specific reason, rather than opportunistic stealing (joyriding, etc).

it would have needed a few people to move it plus trailer,also driveway is awkward to reverse trailer or transporter into!

Kick up enough fuss & you might get lucky, it has happened. Stick an advert on ebay, and spread the word however you can. Maybe it was taken by the scrap metal hunting toerags, who cruise rural areas looking for gates & farm machinery to purloin.

Will keep my eye out for any being broken in the North. As sorry as I am to say this, it most likely wont turn up again - speaking as someone that had a fairly distinctive mini stolen a few years back. We're you insured??

feel it was planned theft for parts,never to be seen again.

See if you can get any pics up!! I'm very active at the moment sourcing mini parts so I'll keep my eye out in the process, as Se7enS1ns, & Lapider noted, is there anything specific or unique in parts we can look out for?
