    This guy broke into one of my vineyards on sunday night, I can't get a number plate, but maybe somebody can tell me what the model of the car is. I won't tell you what i'm thinking, until I get some suggestions.
    I have videos, if anybody wants to see them.

    Edit, I should have noted this has been an on going problem in our agricultural based community in Lake County, I and a lot of other farmers are working with the sheriff dept to put a stop to the thefts and vandalism. Their favorite targets are batterys out of tractors, and any steel that they can carry.

    Thanks

    Hard to say, initial impression make me think '01-'03 Chrysler Sebring Coupe, maybe convertible :)notsure:)

    Definitely looks like the early 2000s Chrysler/Dodge front though.

    That sucks man, I hate thieves. Good luck sleuthing!!!

    The first thing I see is Chevy Malibu classic, 2000-2005. Can you post video, or upload to you tube?

    def not a Malibu. Look at the foglight housing, grill countour, and headlight shape.

    I still say early 2000's Chrysler Sebring Coupe. Maybe Dodge Stratus, but the Dodge front looks too different from the picture.

    Need any turkeys or pigs removed from your vineyard (other than the turkey in the car, that is). I can always set up in my blind and nab the mofo in exchange. ;)

    First thing I thought of was a Chrysler Sebring Coupe or Convertible as well.

    Can I ask what they did at the vineyard?

    It seems like a strange place to break into... I can't imagine a lot of small valuables or cash are there; equipment and tools are certainly expensive, but a car of that size couldn't fit anything large in it.

    Definitely a Sebring of some variant. I lean towards convertible from what we can see in the video.

    Definitely a mid 2000s sebring. If you know any computer imaging experts they might be able to pull license plate numbers. :confused:
