A man visiting the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn from California was introduced to the city's less pleasant side recently. The Detroit News reports thieves made off with his 2001 Ford F-250 pickup truck. That would be bad enough by itself, but the truck was hooked to an enclosed trailer, which housed his classic 1930 Ford Model A at the time. As of right now, there are no leads in the investigation, and there is a $2,000 reward for information leading to vehicles' recovery. Police say the truck is wearing California license plate 6P95642 and is white and gold. The truck has a NASCAR license plate trim ring and a small NASCAR sticker on the rear window.

The trailer is a two-axle 2007 Iner Carrier Road Runner with California license plate 4JT5217.It has a small Ford Racing sticker on the rear door. The Model A is yellow with black fenders and a brown top with California license plate 670RHG. Authorities are urging anyone with information on the theft to call 1-800-242-HEAT.

      You work hard to have something nice and some jealous jackass steals it and does God knows what to it. I hope it is found intact. And the MORON(S) who took it MUST do at least 1 MILLION hours community service EACH, or hard labor... Hope it is recovered safe!

      Why? To take to their local chop-shop? I mean, if you're stealing a car you're already on the lower end of the intelligence spectrum, but what where they planning on doing with it? It's not like you can sell an A Model very easily without FORD knowing about it.

      Install a $3.00 switch in line with the fuel pump power. It can be hidden almost any where. You can crank your car or truck all day and it won't start. I even have an alarm on my trailer. If it is disconnected from the truck it locks the electric brakes and sounds the alarm.

      That's messed up, and I hope nothing but the worst for the lowlifes that stole this guy's rig. I have been to the Henry Ford Museum, and the adjacent Greenfield Village many times, and am a little surprised by this, as it doesn't strike me as the kind of place where this sort of thing would happen. I hope they are found unharmed, not the criminals, the vehicles.

        Put a ad on Detroit's Want to buy section of Craig's List,and you just might be able to get it for 500 bucks if you don't need a title.

      Under Obamas new economic plan those stolen items can go to people for free that make less that $250k a year.

      Let's just burn detroit down and start it over. We can preserve the D3 headquarters and their factories, as well as supplier factories, but the rest of the city needs to be royally scrapped.

        Yeah, never mind all of the historic buildings, landmarks, and neighborhoods, and those areas that are, or have managed to turn themselves around... Let's just take the advice from the guy who has never been there, and knock it all down man!! What the hell do those of us who are actually from there really know anyway?

        That idea was already modeled and failed. Omni Consumer Products had a similar plan, but was thwarted by Officers Alex Murphy and Anne Lewis.

          +1 If he'd been to Detroit he'd know it's basically all already burned down or deteriorated away.
