Acura GS-R R.I.P.


Well, we finally saw what is left of our car. It was worse then we thought. Everything was gone, I mean everything. They took our engine, after market suspension, front brakes, seats, all but one wheel and tire, stereo, the floor carpet, they even took the V-Tec sticker on the back of our car. They were total professionals. They knew to take the numbers for the stereo out of the owners manual. However, they left their latex gloves they used to strip our car. They also left Jon's hockey stick but it looks like they used it because it was all scraped up. Here are some pictures of what was left (one pictues if where the engine use to be and the other is where the front seats use to be). Jon made a video of the car if you want to take a tour (click on the play button on the video at the bottom of this post to watch the video).

We ended up handing the title over to the towing yard, which by the way was super sketchy, and had to pay $200 for the tow before we could leave. It was a very sad day. Jon and I started our life together in that car. The car had lived with us in 5 different states. We drove across country in it when we moved to Colorado, when we moved to Washington, it went on a boat when we moved to Hawaii, and went on a boat when we moved to California. The car was good to us and I will miss him. We are now shopping for a new car. In the mean time we are in the rental.

Unbelievable!! We really liked your car and cannot believe the end it met. So many memories of watching Jon washing, polishing, fixing, and improving the Accura...not to mention Riley and I driving it to the shipyard for its journey to Hawaii. We are sad for you...

Sorry about your car. It looks like they took everything but the shell.

Vegas Sucks! I have a feeling Jon's replacement for this is going to be black as well. It will probably be a Glock and not an Acura though.
