Danny Hopkins’s VW Bora project had every piece of glass smashed

After reporting on thefts and vandalism to cars for the past few years, Practical Classics has now become a victim of the scourge. A break in and vandalism at the PC lock up in Peterborough has left several future project cars destroyed and others damaged. Danny Hopkins’s VW Bora project had every piece of glass smashed while cars including the 300,000 mile Alfa 156 featured in a trip to Italy last year were written off. Editor Danny said: ‘I don't understand why people do this...

I never will. It’s a sign of an empty life with no meaning, I actually pity the people who did it.’ The incident occurred over the early May Bank Holiday weekend and anyone with information is urged to contact Cambridgeshire Police. ‘We have been touched by the response,’ said Danny. ‘A large sum of money has been raised by a third party and, if the team can find an automotive glazier willing to sort out the mess, at least two of the cars can live again – my Bora and Clive Jefferson’s mint E39 BMW 5-Series.’

Once that work is done then the generosity will be paid back by the team. A charitable road run will be undertaken in the cars once they are repaired, followed by a sale to raise money for a good cause.
