Thanks, my deductible is $1000 so maybe I am better off doing it myself. I am still searching the Internet for a complete column ignition assembly and a rear bench seat. I would be great if Germanstar carried plymouth parts
I will contatc him anyway just in case he knows where I can find this stuff.
I will call him in few, I am just waiting for him to wake up back there on the west side of the country.

I'm glad you got your van back. It seems my theory in my poor attempt at a joke in my first reply to this may have been somewhat correct. Your back seat is missing so they could make room for stolen merchandise. They used your van for the theft and then abandoned the van.
Perhaps you and some neighbors could form a neighborhood watch program. It looks like you need it.

We have one, and my wife is the super cop in charge with the stick and handcuffs but she always forget that she is supposed to be patroling outside rather than experimenting on me to perfect her arrest techniques

I haven't been in a van since my buddy Danny Greenstein's purple Econoline rolled the Chicago streets replete with shag carpeting and tear-drop windows. If you google it, I'm sure you'll find that more acid was consumed in that vehicle than any other non-stationary dwelling. It was also to blame for many a rugburned knee.

I just finsihed cleaning the van, and I found blunts, plastic baggies with little crystals in them and a lot of nappy hair. I wonder if it was a nappy headed hoe huh Kamil? I guess next time I will hide in the van overnight so maybe I will catch the next party if they will let me come along. Do you think they will let me play with them?

The van was fine outside but one of the rear seats is missing and of course the ignition tumbler was out and broken as well as the driver side outer lock. I used a knife I found on the floor that they must have used and started the van, drove it home and parked it. Now I am waiting for the Insurance office to open to tell them the news. Maybe I should not put a claim for damages and fix it myself so my rates won't go up, what do you think?

Thank you all for the concerns, I am really touched
out of pocket loses.

GREAT, you got it back.

Probably the last word around here on this is our resident little
insurance agent Chill_Babe, but an auto theft will be a comprehensive claim, (should you elect to make one) NOT a crash or collision, do you really have a $1,000 deductible on comprehensive, for it? What does your policy declarations page read? I'm guessing the typical comprehensive deductible would run about $100-$250; what is yours really?

I don't think the underwriters would jack your rates for a single comprehensive claim,(unless it caught fire five times, parked in the same place)!!

Loathe as you may be to admit it, I'd bet that Kamil is right about the racial identity of the person(s) that stole the van though.

Might be worth a call to the Police to see if they'd like to dust the van for prints, in hopes of apprehending the thief, or establishing a nexus with the home burglary and your van. Just a thought. If they catch the guy who took your car and convictg him, the Judge could order restitution for your loss (won't work if he goes to State Prison) and lots of luck collecting it. IF he got probation with restitution, though, failure to pay it is a hammer over his head, he could get revoked for failing to pay it, and sent to State Prison, where he won't have to.
Probationers HATE the idea of prison, it's worse, much worse than County time.
Just thinking.

(Frankly, I was astonished to read about all this. I thought you were very well off, judging from the pictures of your home, it looked like a real mansion, quite imposing, to me)

Me well off LOL, I am a teacher for God sake!
Yeah as I said I found some nappy hair all around and even some hoochie mama shoes left laying around just what would make Kamil's day
Yeah I was the one that asked for my deductible to be 1K so I can save on my premiums; you know as a teacher I count every penny.
There was some stuff in the van that dog got to before I did and I think he ate it all and now he has been in a corner bobbing his head all day. I don't know what it was but if he continues to be like that by tomorrow I will see if a vet will admit him and put that bill on the insurance claim.
What's important right now is that I am going to have somethin somethin with the wify since spirits are high.
