Honda-Tech Meet Turns Ugly as ‘Thief’ Caught Trying to Steal a CRX [Video] | AutoGuide.com NewsThere's no justice like mob justice. Then again, we're sure you'll have a different opinion of the car "thief" in this video once you hear all the facts.
At the annual Northwest Region Spring Meet for Honda-Tech owners things got very out of hand when someone hopped into a CRX and tried to drive off. The owner of the car just so happened to see it happen, however, and a crowd quickly formed to enact some swift retribution on the alleged thief, who appears to have taken quite a beating while refusing to leave the driver's seat of the ZC-swapped CRX.
As it turns out, there's more to this story than just "get outta my f*cking car". The alleged thief attempted to drive off because he had the keys. How did he get the keys? Well the driver didn't leave them behind, nor did he pay off the guy at the local dealer to make him a spare set (Gone in 60 Seconds reference). No, he had his own set... because the CRX is question actually belongs to him. He even has the registration to prove it.
According to pieced together forum chatter, the rightful owner of the car actually had it stolen from him recently. Then the thief traded it to the foul-mouthed young woman for her DA (1989-93) 4-door Integra, who then took possession of the vehicle without any registration and had been driving the stolen car. Knowing the type of owner a vehicle like this would attract, our car "thief" wisely assumed there was a good chance it would show up at a Honda-Tech meet.
