URGENT! Spencer's Motorsport truck stolen - 2/12/13, Petaluma CA

URGENT!!! The Spencer's Motorsport truck was stolen this morning between 7-8am in Petaluma.

Barry Spencer is a long time GGLC member, friend of the Lotus community and great long time friend.

The truck IS Barry's livelihood.

Please help recover this truck. It is a white '97 Ford box van (like the GGLC's truck) with a yellow wedge on the side of the box. Here's an older photo of the side of the truck.

If you've seen this truck call the Petaluma Police immediately.

Most likely the truck will be gutted. Watch for a 60G red air compressor, tools, especially Lotus related tools and manuals showing up on Craig's list and ebay.

Thanks all for helping. Barry is feeling totally gutted.

Thanks everyone. Please keep spreading the word.

This is like taking away a nerd's laptop, smart phone, ipad, internet connection. Life stops and so does the ability to earn a living.
