thieves strike Car dealer

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News -

Two cars were stolen less than two weeks ago when raiders struck at a well-known clas­sic dealer.

A Volk­swa­gen Bee­tle and a Mercedes-Benz SLK were taken from Peterborough Clas­sic Cars at Thor­ney, Cambs at around 4am on Sun­day May 30.

Ben Purdy from Peterborough Clas­sic Cars says: ‘This is very up­set­ting. We haven’t had a break-in dur­ing the 31 years we have been here and only one other car has ever been taken. We think they were af­ter a Volk­swa­gen Type 2 camper we have in stock.’

The stolen sil­ver Mercedes-Benz, reg­is­tered R280 RBY, was on sale at £3000 and the ‘new’ model Bee­tle, HW02 AKY at £1500.
