Memphis is as bad as Chicago just so anyone here now knows. Sad beyond sad the stop over was in Memphis😳. Who the heck is organizing this event taking people to a city like Memphis what a joke. I’d be separating from this “Stolen Tour”.

Is there some place to find additional details. I think that's pretty amazing personally and I like to know how I was arranged.

If u can stomach the BS in the beginning its a good video. I have this on both my cars and if anyone is wondering if u can still use ur remote start the answer is Yes. That shit is chopped by now. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure......

We did the Power Tour.
5 Hellcats were stolen in one night plus a few other hot rods.
Many people were running guard shifts to protect everyone's cars at their hotels.
We stayed the 1st night in Memphis and went to Mississippi for the 2nd night.
BTW there were dozens of Hellcats at the event including the Roadkill Hellcat Charger General Mayhem.

It was said that the thieves were using the vin to key frequency device that the dealerships have. Not sure if this was true. 20220614_143237.jpg

That is nuts. Unbelievable. Dodge has to get off their ass with this. In 2017 I was suspicious of how they were going to protect the cars and disabled all the remote stuff, but jesus christ, they're supposed to be professional automotive design engineers....

It's like we have to start booting our own cars. Kill switch will still get you broken windows.

I've seen Honda Civics in my neighborhood lately parked on their driveway with boots on the wheels. Crazy rate of cars stolen daily around here. Thanks to push button start (mostly, sure makes it convenient to re-key a car and drive off).

Bill HB 11 is in process in TN to allow deadly force to be used to protect personal property. I love TN 😎

I heard from the car owner and it was recovered and said it was OK but none of his keys would work.

I was told that they were using some kind of vin number for the frequency needed tool that is used by the dealership??

Makes me wonder if just covering up the VIN on the dash is a good enough deterrent. I'm blessed to live in an area we don't have much of this kind of trouble so I've not really looked in to anything.

Did you see a list of what was stolen in Memphis?
I was parked next to a 66-67 white 427 Corvette that was in the wrapper on Sunday night.
It wasn't there Monday morning and I never saw it again.

I haven't. The Hellcat owner pinged me on my Youtube channel. Honestly for the size that event is they should have hired guards in the hotel parking lots.
