I stopped by a local Ford dealer in search of some parts for my 05 Saleen.

While I was there, I was sucked in by the three Bullitts they had sitting outside. As luck would have it (for me, anyway) the door was open, so I jumped in.

What I found inside was a little sad... someone pilfered as much Bullitt specific stuff as they could fit in a pocket.

Shifter knob, trim bezel, etc...

I simply don't get theft...

On the other hand, that stuff is so expensive I guess I shouldn't be TOO surprised. :doubt:

Good reason to remember to always lock your car doors whenever you get out. I wish things were like in my parents days when they never even locked the front door and just left the keys in the car. But that was then....now it's a different story.

P.S. That's probably exactly what happened to Jason's new car in his thread here...

Years ago I used to always lock everything up tight until someone broke out my window to get in. Now in my daily drivers (a Caravan and Escort) I just don't leave anything in the Vehicle to steal and leave the doors unlocked. If you want to browse in my car then go ahead. There is nothing of real value and since both vehicles have well of 200K miles, a broken window will total it. Now the Bullitt and any of the Classic cars are a different story and I am very careful where I park them.

A thief is a thief, is a thief, is a thief, is a thief.

It's probably safe to say that the dealership staff removed it to prevent theft. I've seen this several times at various dealers.

A Thief has many issues other then being a thief . Low self esteem and jealousy and set of bad values! They don't want you to have what they CAN'T have so they destroy with anger!

I don't understand why the car was unlocked?
My Bullitt was out of sight and still in it plastic wrap.

Smart dealers keep their Bullitts in the showroom. I'm glad that I got mine early- it was in the showroom for 2 weeks. My dealer has one now that has been sitting outside for months.

Isn't that true. A few years back someone broke into an old Van I had. There wasn't anything worth stealing, but there was a pair of sunglasses I left in the van. They had completely mangled (almost tied in a knot) the sunglasses and left them on the passenger seat.

Lots of drug addicts looking to steal to support their habit too. It's a sad deal.

Hey, there was a guy on here yesterday that was saying he drove away from the dealer with his new Bullitt and was so exicited that those very items were missing and he didn't even notice. Could this have been the same car?

As you were. I just checked that post and that incident was out in California... probably the same kind of thievery, though.

Actually, I walked back inside and let a sales manager know it was missing.

He already knew about it and seemed kind of annoyed. (With me or the theif, I have no idea.) :D
