A Ford truck hauling a trailer with a valuable vintage Camaro inside was taken outside of a hotel earlier this month.
Rolling around with your car in a car trailer is a stressful ordeal; it used to be stressful because of the amount of damage that could be done if you got tangled in a wreck, but lately, it’s like having a criminal target on your back. When scummy crooks steal your rig, complete with car trailer and automotive occupant, its a three’fer for them. This exact scenario happened to a man from Lamar county, Texas, while in Ennis for a race.
Louis Prihoda was in town for a race at the NHRA Bracket Finals. He returned to his LaQuinta Inn hotel room early in the morning after racing, and work up to find his Ford F-350 truck, Sparton trailer, and 1969 Chevy Camaro gone.
“When I woke up the next morning, it was all gone,” said Prihoda.
The Chevy Camaro was spotted in the Balch Springs area, which is north of the area, and closer to Dallas. This spotting was identified via a home video surveillance that also showed the black window stickers and plates removed. In our experience reporting these cases, when the car is spotted, it usually means the rest of the rig has been ditched already.
“We are offering a $5,000 reward for the recovery of my gray and black 2002 Ford F-250, a white 28ft 2018 Sparton trailer, and gray and block 1969 Camaro.”
