Default To the thief stealing gas caps during Corvettes at Carlisle- THIS MESSAGE IS FOR YOU!

Dear Thief-

First, Iíd like to thank you for the sleepless night last evening. I could not sleep because I was furious after hearing that for a second year in a row you have stolen vintage Corvette gas caps from wonderful friends and supporters of Corvettes at Carlisle. Ironically enough my team and I should be glowing because we had record numbers throughout our weekend and the weather was downright incredible. However, my mind is in another direction and Iíd like to share it with you and the Corvette community as a whole.

Many of you might know that when I have a vision or a dream I go after it. I give my all to succeed. My new mission is to have you caught and put behind bars. I intend to succeed at this too. Iím a firm believer that good things come to good people. And on the other hand - bad things come to bad people. You are a downright bad person. Things might seem wonderful for you now, especially after such a successful weekend of stealing other peopleís hard earned property. Iím guessing youíll most likely try to sell these gas caps Ė and youíll probably get some money. What I just donít understand, and will never understand, is how you can sleep at night knowing how many people youíve upset this past weekend (9 gas caps were reported stolen this weekend).

To those of you that had your gas caps stolen, please accept my sincere apologies. Please note that in the special display areas such as the 50th Anniversary, we had a security guard on duty all through the evening. However a couple of the owners let me know they felt the thief took the gas caps in the morning, right under our noses. To say Iím upset about this is an understatement.

With all of this saidÖIím asking for the entire Corvette community to come together. Letís join forces and find the person or circle of people that are stealing innocent enthusiasts and businesses ownerís products. If you see somebody thatís taking off a gas cap question find a security guard and tell them. What I enjoy most about the Corvette hobby is the true camaraderie and passion behind it. Again, Iím asking the entire Corvette community to come together as a whole and letís find the few bad seeds and weed them out. I give you my word Iíll do my best.

If you have any ideas of how we can catch this person, I urge you to email me: [email protected].

Thief Ė if you have a change of heart after reading this letter and you want to return the gas caps Ė you can ship all of them to me and I will make sure they get back to their rightful owners. You can send the caps to me at the following address: Carlisle Events (attention: Lance Miller), 1000 Bryn Mawr Road; Carlisle PA 17013.

Thank you for your time.

Very aggravated,

Lance Miller

PS Please cut & paste this message everywhere you feel would help spread the word - we need to come together on this one! I appreciate your help & plan on personally contacting editors at various automotive magazines to help me spread the word.

Cross posting for Lance....PD

If you DO find the person/persons responsible......shoot them!
If I had a vintage vette, with a cap worth quite a bit, you can bet that somewhere on that cap there would be an identifying mark of some sort. 2 tick marks on the inside edge or something.
Matter of fact, the caps stolen might just have a mark somewhere that is logged and easily identifiable as the owners. So to those who stole the caps, and you know you will try and sell them, that little mark that looks like a scratch is just a scratch, and not something that will get you busted and thrown in jail where Leroy will arserape you like the beoch you are!
