That sucks. Hopefully they catch the crooks and the car is returned in one piece.

Every Mustang owner's nightmare...
So sorry.
On behalf of law enforcement professionals everywhere, WE DO look for owners' stolen cars and we take great pride in returning them in the best condition and as soon as possible. I hope his is found soon.

Well, it won't be hard to spot. Now that the word is out to all of us in the Mustang family, you have thousands more eyes looking out for it. Get as much exposure as you can on Social Media.
I shared the post on my FB page. I'm in Massachusetts, but I have quite a few friends in CA.

Well that certainly sucks. Echo Park is not East LA, but there's gotta be plenty of chop shops in East LA to be looking for it there.

Bummer... Good Luck in your search. My condolences... Notify the L.A. Port Authority... That's what I'd do. Tony K.

Thieves seem to be on a streak right now. My neighbor's truck disappeared late on Saturday and they (fortunately) got it back
yesterday. It was in LA, 40 miles away. That particular crook is behind bars now,

We'll keep an eye out.

What's the VIN? The license plate was removed within an hour of the theft. The car will be repainted and listed on Craigslist within a week. So we need the VIN.

Hope your friend get her back.
Had my 65 fastback stolen a few years back in Culver City CA. I never got it back.

I feel like there really isn’t a way to prevent these cars from being stolen, and maybe just focus on recovery systems like lojack.. haven’t really found an affordable option that would let you track the car.

Good luck and I’ll keep my eye out in SoCal.

I am sorry to hear :)

My friends daily driver got stolen a couple of weeks ago. We posted a lot on Instagram about the car and someone saw the car two days later and called the cops. The car was in a good shape, only dirty.
I know some guys here are against FB, Instagram and so on, but I think social media is powerful and CAN be very helpful if used correctly.

Good luck finding the car.

About a month ago, someone had their 69 Camaro stolen outside of their house in Bisbee, AZ. It was recovered a couple of days later when it was found stuck in the mud on a dirt road headed south to Mexico. That was a close call because once it's on the other side of the line, it's gone.

I'm not a big fan of reddit but it might help to also post there and crosspost to other relevant subreddits, ex: r/mustangs, r/losangeles, r/projectcars, r/cars

YEAH !!!!
Now, to add that disabler...
Encourage your friend to join VMF and search all the threads for Mustang anti-theft and locators. Good news, indeed.
