John's stolen '02 WRX

John’s stolen ’02 WRX

An absolutely unbelievably perfect blue 2002 Subaru WRX was stolen from Brooklyn, New York City this morning after years of maintenance, tunes and modifications from a loving owner.

If looking into those sad bug-eyed headlights makes you angry cry at the thought that someone could snatch it from a loving home, help us get this car back to its owner!

The car was stolen from Bushwick, Brooklyn at 3 a.m. Monday morning and was seen crossing the Williamsburg bridge via a traffic camera at around 3:30 a.m.

The last reported tip claimed to have seen the car “headed south west on 36 just outside of Staytonville, Delaware” around 4:30 p.m.

The car is a blue 2002 Subaru WRX bugeye with gold Prodrive wheels, yellow Brembo brakes, a carbon fiber roof and rear diffuser, and Recaro seats.

It belongs to John Seabrooke, who is trying to post to as many forums as possible to get people looking for the car, and reached out to Jalopnik for help.

Update: John says the new Florida plate number is GPS U72.


You can follow the full six year build journal posted by John over at the North American Subaru Impreza Owners Club forums, and it’s quite the specimen.

If you see the car please immediately report it to the police.

If you have any other details, you can email the owner at: jseabrooke@me.com
