Default STOLEN - Trophy Yellow MG ZT-T C628JON

Jon Mossley's MG ZT-T was stolen in last 24 hours from East Yorkshire.

C628JON









Last footage of it being driven up the road.

STOLEN MG ZT-T ON YOUTUBE

Jon is someone I've known for many years, we have always met up at pride of Longbridge, and regular sit and chat long into Friday night on messenger.

He is absolutely heart broken, the car was his pride and joy, and there are only 26 yellows ever made. This is not going to be an easy car to hide, scrap or sell on.

Please help if you can and contact him via the Facebook link below or contact me via my email, messages or social platforms.

That is annoying news and sad for John; as you say it does stick out and we must hope for a safe recovery.

Do we know how it was taken - just loaded onto a trailer in the street? Was the trailer going Hull way or Leeds way - if Leeds suggest the bobbies have a look at the Leeds travelling community - they were in my part of the world last year on false plates nicking cats.

That recovery truck should be fairly easy to spot, too.

As we're all to well aware, if it isn't found quick it will be in a container off to another jurisdiction, resprayed with false plates, stripped for spares etc These people are scumbags of the first order. No conscious or scruples about ruining other peoples' lives. I do hope that Jon gets her back.

Silly thought, but does the car have Smartnav?
I know that they don't support our cars anymore, but the still may be able to track the car

Shocking news, and worrying at the same time.

Hopefully the thieves are thick as, and the reg plates on the truck can be traced from that footage or some more located by cameras in the area.

Sorry to hear this has happened to a fellow owner.

Too many of these thieving retards in the world given too much leniency.
