Wouldn't the venue have some sort of insurance that covers this? I'd be filthy.

Thanks for posting this up. I'm the owner of the car and I posted this on Facebook today after I was informed.

A lot of parts I would call irreplaceable were taken. At this point I actually don't know what to do for parts and wondering if I'll ever be able to get the car back to the standard it was. The interior was immaculate with many NOS parts used throughout and excellent condition to NOS VZ HSV parts are getting extremely hard to come by.

I'm gutted. That's all I can say. Nothing hits you as hard as having your pride and joy either stolen or damaged.

If anyone sees any various VZ HSV parts pop up anywhere for sale please let me know. Things such as non-R8 seats, binnacle gauges (white faced), gear knob/boot etc. Thank you.

I'm interested in understanding whether or not the storage facility has any insurance that covers you? I understand that it won't come close to the proper replacement value but still, aren't they obligated to have it insured for you given you are paying them money to store it?

99% these places are park at your own risk - time to call your insurer.

At the very least, surely they could provide you the actual footage of the break in?

Insurance is good and fine as it helps IF you can find the parts.....

Me personally think, advertising the parts being stolen on places like this and finding the scumbags, is better than a wallet full of cash from any place

Majority of car storage facilities in Sydney atleast won't cover cars & tell you that insurance is required otherwise can't store your car there.
