$50k reward for return of A Tudor
A HOT rod enthusiast is offering a $50,000 reward for the safe return of his classic car which was stolen during Wintersun last year.
Kevin Quiqley and his wife Kaylene were hoping to jog the memories of anyone who may remember seeing their 1928 Model A Tudor a year ago.
The vehicle was stolen from a Kirra apartment complex sometime after 11pm on Saturday, June 6, 2009.
It was taken along with a 1974 Holden GTS Monaro.
The Quiqleys parked their 1953 Chevy pick up outside the Coolangatta Hotel during Wintersun over the weekend with posters of their stolen vehicle.
“We are handing out more than 1200 flyers to people as well passing through Wintersun,” Mr Quiqley said.
“We're hoping they can take it back to their home towns with them and help get the word out about what happened.
“Our best lead came earlier this year when someone in Melbourne saw one of the flyers in a coffee shop and rang us with information.
The $50,000 reward is for the safe recovery of the car and conviction of the persons responsible.
Police reports at the time said the offenders moved a Ford Mustang in order to gain access to the other vehicles.
Initial investigations by police suggested the vehicles were transported from Kirra after being loaded onto a trailer or truck.
Mr Quiqley said the Tudor was in his possession for almost 30 years.
“It was the first car I ever owned,” he said.
Anyone with information is being asked to contact Mr Quiqley on 0422 987 263
