    Missing Car from Nats

    This was posted on Facebook by Forrest Watchers

    I thought I'd re-post it here in case any OWH readers may not have seen it on FB:



    If anyone sees a car that has a body that looks this color with these markings it is my car that is missing from the nats please help if you know where it might be.
    Thanks Forrest Watchers

    Hi every one i have a request it seems that after the Nats were over i left and left my open car in impound fiqured out i had left it almost a week late called down to the track and it seems they do not know where it is or what happened to it if anyone has info on where it might be i would very much appreciate it.
    Thanks Forrest Watchers

    I'm still hoping that it might have been accidentally misplaced or packed unintentionally by another racer. It does happen!
    Especially when racers get to talking and packing in a hurry after the races.

    Some racers may not have even unpacked yet - so hoping if more people see this, that it might still turn up.

    I'll keep my rose colored glasses cleaned and my fingers crossed.

    At least if someone does try to sell it on eBay or run it at the track, maybe someone seeing the pics online will recognize it...

    Good thing Forrest is 3,000 miles away from you!

    I think maybe you just wanted that free lunch!

    I also had my NATS C-12 Chassis go missing. I am not sure but it may have my USRA #149 engraved in it. I assume James engraved all chassis with the USRA#.

    That's it i'm going to patent the idea of viper alarms for slot boxes! Protected by viper stand back!!!
    Really!!!! what is this world comming to? It's kind of weird that if his car was in impound that the owner of the facility should have it! I don't rule out the possibility that someone walked by after the race was over and picked it up though.

    Yes all of the chassis were raced in the nats are engraved with either membership number or name.

    Here's a photo of my missing c12 chassis from the Nats at Buena Park.
    I'd just like to get it back.
