I've just had this email from the owner of the car, John. Please keep an eye out and see if we can reunite car with its owner...the power of the internet and all that!
My Mk 2 Astra was stolen from outside my house in SW London on
Details: H 563 BCD, 1.6, Dark Silver/Grey, 5dr, under 60k miles.
Original, treasured, good cond, minimal body rust/damage (cpl of dents
in each front wing, some rust round the rear arches).
I can only assume it was either taken for "fun" or as a donor
car/strip and sell parts.
Could you ciculate Mk2 owners about this car. If I get it back in any
repairable condition it will be put through a full restoration. Repairs
to body were already planned as it is a treasured member of the family
and we wanted to keep it going.
