Probably some people like the Wright brothers looking for materials from which to build a plane. I mean what else are you going to do with all those wheels! :-)

That's not nice. My friend had her car broken into today. Karma will get them one day.

I think this ripper is global. I'm sure I have seen his work in Haninge as well!
