Google translation. Sounds awful & very rare event thank god. I dont recal a Mog being stolen & burnt before.
Discovered around 5 am this Thursday, January 13 in Saint-Sylvestre-sur-Lot, it had been stolen before in the department of Lot
Firefighters and gendarmes were called this Thursday, January 13 at around 5 a.m. near the municipal stadium of Saint-Sylvestre-sur-Lot, after a burning car was reported to them.

An unusual car since it is an English convertible of Morgan brand, a prestigious vehicle, sporty and whose curves are reminiscent of those of the vehicles of the 50s.


According to the gendarmerie services, the beautiful English was reported stolen a few hours earlier by its owner, residing in Puy-l'Évêque, in the Lot.

Moron thieving vandals!

I have been concerned about getting my M3W stolen in France by casual thieves, so have a concealed battery master switch, not that that will stop professionals. If I am going away for a few days, I remove a front wheel and lock it up, hidden at the back of my cellar , behind the boiler and put a very heavy chain round the rear wheel and suspension. I had my Yamaha Raptor 700R sports quad bike stolen from outside my French house. It was chained to a post concreted into the ground. It looked like they had used a 4WD vehicle to pull the post out and then put the whole lot onto a trailer. To add insult to injury, they hit my Panamera with the trailer when leaving. It was the weekend when the circus and fair was in the village, with speakers blaring until 2AM, so I had my windows shut and did not hear the theft. The police said that thefts seem to follow the circus wherever it goes and my quad was probably on a fishing boat with other stolen quads, scooters and motorbikes, en route to Morocco within 24 hours. The thieves were obviously very professional, as they found and had disabled the tracker, before I discovered the theft the next morning.

Because they (1) just wanted something to go joy-riding in, (2) Didn't care about the owner as it was probably insured, and (3) torching it is an easy way to destroy fingerprint or DNA evidence.

Please. Theft of a vehicle, not joy riding.

Sorry, didn't mean to lessen the seriousness of the crime.

Hopefully someone would have seen something. I have never heard of a MOG being stolen before.

I know you didn't, it's just that I hate that expression.
