The Toy – Stolen, recovered

Last week, the Toy was stolen while parked in West Covina. I drove it to the EDD office there, to visit the Experience Unlimited office.
When I came out at 4:30, it was gone. My wife came and got me. We went to the police station and filed a report.
By 9:30 that evening, the car had been recovered. Part of the cooling system had failed, and it overheated. The car was abandoned on the freeway median.
Primary damage: possible bad head gasket (looks like combustion gasses in coolant) and an engine noise. Looks like this engine is done for. Time to get moving on the next phase of the project. The car was insured, so the adjustor must see it and I’ll see what kind of settlement I can get.
