Gardiner Man’s Polaris Slingshot Stolen From his Driveway
According to a Facebook post from Jennifer Cummings Blanche, a blue Polaris Slingshot was stolen out of their Gardiner driveway sometime between Saturday night and Sunday morning.
We have included the original post as well as some photos of the vehicle that they are missing. If you're not familiar with them, the Polaris Slingshot is a three-wheeled 'auto-cycle' that has two articulating wheels in the front and a single fixed wheel in the rear. It has no roof, no doors and looks like nothing else on the road today. It is mostly blue with a black hood and black rims and interior.
There has been a police report filed so if you see this vehicle anywhere, please contact the Gardiner Maine Police Department at 207-624-7076 and let them know when and where you saw the vehicle.
I speak from experience when I say just how uniquely special these new vehicles are. I just had the opportunity to go up to 201 Powersports in Bingham and test-drive one of these bad boys. It was some of the most fun I have ever had on the road. It feels like nothing I have ever driven in my entire life. So I know how upset the owner of this one must feel.
