WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: ‘Dear Old Subie was stolen again’

Last time this car was stolen, a WSB reader found it. Maybe that’ll happen again this time. From Kitty:

Déjà vu! Dear Old Subie was stolen again today. Probably sometime this morning from North Admiral, 44th and Seattle Street. We have filed a report and are looking for her now, thinking she might have been taken for a joyride and dumped nearby. Please let us know if you’ve seen her? Almost 330,000 miles, Burgundy Red 1984 Subaru GL wagon 4WD, manual transmission. Washington plates 746KNY. Crystal Mountain and Alta stickers, extra roof rack, and, recent development, the hood looks slightly askew. We still love her…

Last time, in April 2019, it turned up in Morgan Junction. If you see it, call 911.

    You would think a manual trans would steer thieves away smh. Good luck with finding.

    They figured your car out. Install a hidden kill switch. Your car is easy pickins’

    That’s a Seattle original if I’ve ever seen one. I hope you get her back in one piece.

    Thanks for the nice comments!  Yes, indeed, should have installed the kill switch after last time.  I’ll be putting one in our other ride.  Just surprised they got her started as, honestly, it takes us several tries and that special touch!

    Apple AirTag ($29) hidden in the trunk area allows me to track my Subaru via my phone.  You have to have a 4 year old iphone or newer.

Sorry, comment time is over.
