Junkyard shouldn't allow cars inside yard. They are just inviting the "getaway car" scenario. Also don't they have a camera system employed at the entrance? They should be liable for your loss Robert. Our local junkyards have security gates and checks as we leave and we're only allowed inside on foot.

Did you approach the junkyard manager? Perhaps they have footage?!!

Can't see Robert's Paypal address on his website!! Anyone can email it to me?
I think this happened in the parking lot, not in the actual yard. So I don't know that the junkyard could really do anything for him, unfortunately.

I have a whole bunch of 1998 S70 Volvo parts that I will ship to Robert for free.
He needs it more than I do.

Plus I will send him some $ on Paypal.
According to Robert's website, his Paypal address is [email protected].

I have heard from Robert via email that , thanks to your contributions on PayPal, he is whole again.

Thanks to everyone who gave!

Note - we don't, as a rule, do solicitations here as we don't have resources to manage cash and the like.

Per Matt, the site owner, we have made an exception here for a member who contributes so heavily to this community.

Most notably, we do not allow posts for crowd funding, help me outs, etc - with the exception of the 'Pay it forward' type threads in each Forum,

Naturally, as always, members can use the PM and email system to make private arrangements with other members as they see fit.

To be honest, my biggest concern whenever I visit the junkyard is leaving with all of the tools I came in with.

Agreed, it is a nice thing for a nice guy. He's one of the good ones out there in life.


Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
