    Thumbs up help me find my lost kitty

    help me find my lost cat.last seen in the pottsville/schuylkill haven/orwigsburg area of schuylkill county PA about 20 years ago.it was a CC but was repainted in electric currant red metallic,had a hole cut in hood for a 2x4 tunnelram(dumbass 24 yo me)and a unique feature of drivers side power window and manual pass side(L door got crushed and that was the only one i could find at the time).was probably sold to last known owner without engine,i sold it without engine and the guy i sold it to didnt install one.any help would be GREATLY appreciated,thanks,george
    i purchased car at Gold Star FLM in Shenandoah PA, mid '88 where it was traded in.i owned it for 4-5 years and had many happy miles in that car from road trips to drag strips...

    well i'm sad to report that i just spoke with the last owner of my CC and he told me that that car was sent to the scrapyard quite a few years ago when scrap prices were up.seems his brother thaought he would do him a favor and took several of his foxes to the yard for him.on the bright side he said he saved the interior and has it in storage at his dad's place.he said he will get a look to see what he has and let me know...i guess some of my car back is better than none!

    Welcome to the site and good luck with your search. I hope you are able to track it down. Do you have the VIN number?

    Yeah, post up some pictures. Someone might recognize it. I let my first Capri get away as well. Didn't find it but got another one. Hopefully you will be able to find it.

    There was a red crimson cat 5-6 years ago in the u-pullit in Tully town pa. I have some of the parts from it on my cobra, it's long gone now. The guy I bought my cobra had picked some parts off it and came with my cobra. Had 3 ring steering wheel with column. Was told it had nice red seats, and was a decent car to be in a u-pullit. My buddy saw the car and may have a photo off it.

    bittersweet i would call it.bitter cuz i know i cant get it back,but sweet that no one else will either.i can say i was the last one to drive it.have my eye on ann RS thats on craigslist now and bm that a friend of mine had.talked to him yesterday and the guy he sold it to bought it and put it in shed.supposed to have put a motorsport crate engine in it and that was it.he said the guy would probably sell it.only thing that scares me about it the whole thing is it has a reconstucted title.i know when my friend had it ,it was wrecked at least 3 times that i know of.once being enough for insurance co. to total it.that doesnt mean that the car isnt safe tobe back on road,just sayin
