The LowLife Union is running a contest this week.

Hope it is returned without too much damage.

It will come home Jim, not to worry.

Recovery stats on these is very high, its all joyrides

If youwant to demonize drug addiction, start with aPurdue and the Sackler drug cartel, not my neighbors kid who blew a knee, had surgery, and got hooked in 6 days.

Mods, thanks for the edits.

This isn't my van or my words, I just posted a screen shot from another site.

Here's hoping it's found soon.

Update: Van was recovered on Friday morning about 2 hours after reporting it stolen to the police. It was found about 8-10 blocks from where it was stolen.

Again, found In prime cellular coverage area.
A basic Cell based tracker would have enabled you to drive right to it.
