Some people are just plain heartless…
A family in Tucson, Arizona is reeling after a thief swiped two classic cars from their property. One is an orange 1927 Ford Model T coupe, the other a 1929 Ford Model A truck. Just to make it even worse, the thief swiped a 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 dually pickup as well.

The theft reportedly happened in the early morning hours of March 8. The vehicles were parked on a property on West El Puente Lane near West Silverlake Road and West Santa Cruz Lane.
To criminals, such objects are just a quick score, a way to make money with minimal effort. However, for the family they carry immense sentimental value. Understandably, they want both back. While the local report doesn’t get too much into their backstory, it does say both were built by a man who was a construction worker. He obviously put a lot of time and effort into getting both Fords just right. The ’27 Model T coupe was apparently a tribute to his late wife. Now the gearhead father is also gone, so the two Fords are all his children and grandchildren had of him. That was until someone decided to help themselves.
Not only were the vehicles taken, the thief also helped himself to about $10,000 worth of tools. We’re sure this person thinks they did something really great, which is why everyone needs to be on the lookout for these classic cars. Hopefully everything is returned to the family.
We really despise car thieves. Nobody needs to steal cars to feed their family. If you have the skills to boost vehicles you have the skills to work a legitimate job. While swiping someone’s Hyundai can cause plenty of suffering, it’s when these rare, sentimental rides are taken that it really hurts. Please keep your eyes peeled for these classic Fords and spread this story around so they’re returned, hopefully in one piece.
