A classic Ford Mustang was used as a battering ram for a heist, driven through an electronics store in Athens, Greece.
The weird part of the story here is of course the car itself; classic Mustangs are pretty rare and valuable in these parts of the globe and using one of them for such an endeavor really baffles the mind.
It would make somewhat more sense if the loot was of significant value but, according to local media reports, the thieves managed to grab just three PlayStation consoles before fleeing the scene. The classic Mustang was reportedly stolen the night before.
The car appears to be a 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback, which was abandoned on the spot bruised and scarred from the crash. We can see that both the windshield and rear glass are shuttered, the bonnet is gone and the roof panel visibly dented.
The car had recently undergone a complete restoration according to its owner, with the damage costs estimated to be north of 5,000 euros (around $5,500). A short video from Greece’s SKAI Channel shows the car still wedged in the entrance of the store.
Prices of classic Mustangs in Greece range between 30,000 to 70,000 euros ($33k to $77k in current exchange rates), which is thousands of times more than what those three gaming consoles are worth. But the thieves obviously had no idea about cars, so they took whatever they could find before embarking on their master plan. All things considered, though, maybe the owner should consider themselves lucky; at least they didn’t total, torch or throw it or something like that.
