Whoa! Engine stolen right out of a Mustang

Engine Stolen Right Out of Car

BUNKER HILL, W.Va. (AP) Julie Slye didn't know the engine of her Ford Mustang was being stolen until the thieves took the hood.

Slye and her boyfriend had spent six years putting together the eight-cylinder custom engine, she said last Thursday as she thumbed through a scrapbook filled with pictures of the 1989 Mustang's 5.0 block.

She noticed something was amiss on Aug. 13 when she walked outside of her home.

"That's when I noticed the hood was gone," Slye said.

Slye estimates the parts to be worth about $2,500. But the "sentimental value" is worth much more, she said.

"They stripped the whole thing down to the block," she said. "They just took everything."

The only portions of the refinishing job not yet completed were a new hood and a paint job for the car, she said. Now she has a new hood, but she's decided not to go ahead with a paint job unless the engine is recovered.

"I was just thinking why in the world would someone do this to my car?" she said. "I've heard of people breaking into cars and stealing radios, a wallet or a pocketbook, you know, but I've never heard of something like what happened to me."

Slye has put up signs asking for anybody who has information about the heist to come forward. She also said she might consider an amnesty if the stolen parts are simply returned.

now if they actually had the time and could get an engine lift in their to get the block, then all id have to say is mustang neglect :no: but still that sucks alot... but there is definately a case of not paying attention. or being oblivious. man when my car sits in my driver i check on it a million times.. for that exact reason... hope she gets her stuff back though. thad be funny if it was a whole candid camera sorta stunt.. im sure its not..

I swear, people on the internet call BS on everything these days...

How often does a "suspicious motor" just "come up" ?

Fox News wouldn't have put in on their site if it wasn't validated, by at least another newspaper.

LMAO!! Im not calling the whole thing BS, probably happened, but it seems fishy for a engine to be jacked right out of a person driveway. Sounds like an insurance job to me. Calm down!

They will only pay to get you a stock engine back. They arent going to pay for all the performance mods she added on. She probably didnt let them know that she was doing that anyways
