    Default 4 Hurst Olds stolen at 2009 Indy Ntionals meet

    Detailed info on Hurst Olds cars stolen at The Nationals in Indy. Maybe this can help someone reciver a car back.

    Between 1AM and 4AM on Saturday, August 8, 2009, FOUR Hurst/Olds were stolen from 2 hotel parking lots adjacent to each other in Indianapolis, Indiana. There were over 125 H/O’s in attendance for the Hurst/Olds Club of America 25th National Meet. This was a calculated "hit", not a random crime. The thieves knew we were going to be there, they knew which cars they wanted, they knew what they were doing and they got us!
    It took them less than 1 minute to gain entry to a car, have it running and leaving the parking lot. They used a white crew cab pick up truck and drove into the lot and parked like they were a guest. One person exited the truck and hit the car, then both left. They went back and forth from one hotel to the other, not raising suspicion. This was evident from reviewing the hotels security tapes. Following is a list of the cars with unique features about each. All of the cars had a roof option.
    1. 1979 Hurst/Olds black and goldRare factory moonroof
      Rare black vinyl interior – drivers seat has a small hole from a broken spring

      Crack in the RH corner of the black dash pad

    Man I know what those guys went through, my 80 was stolen in broad daylight. Rims and sound stolen. The windows and doors left open, on the rotors and drums in sand through rainy season in Tallahassee,FL I was livid but the kicker was when the police found it I had to pay $125 to get it back, no wheels looking like a corps. Good luck guys hope you guys find them whole and in great condition.
