Angry "Smashed and Stolen" SMS 570X Challenger

http://www.challengertalk.com/forums...-stolen-36457/

This is a SMS 570X Challenger is sitting in Vallego, Ca. This car was stolen, wrecked and found stripped of all SMS options. They did leave the dash plaque.

Very sad indeed.

There was once a silver 570X press/show car.

Default GPS Tracking System

Does anyone know if it had the Guidepoint tracking system on it?

I wonder if we could find out the production/SMS serial number? This one looks to be an automatic... the show car was a manual.

Very sad! It's odd to see the "Saleen" banner replace the "SMS" one.

I'm glad I have it installed as well. It's unfortunate

I will agree, though... it is a "real" SALEEN.

By that time, there's a good chance they'll be called a Saleen again anyway.

What a terrible way for a fine machine to end up as. No wonder why I have Lojack on my PJ.

I don't believe I've seen a stolen or repo'ed PJ to date.
