    A food truck stolen? Probably buy now who ever stole it had painted it!

      Not necessarily – could have been stolen for its contents, then dumped. Distinctive vehicle regardless of whether it’s been painted.

    80-90s Toyotas are notoriously easy to steal, doesn’t make it right blah blah, just sayin’ might want to invest in something like the club.

      heh… they did say it was stolen “for the second time”.  So yes,  easy to steal
