Vandals do a number on Wodonga cars

IF you see a bright-pink number plate with the words “Kylie K” on the Border, the chances are it was stolen from a Wodonga husband and wife who were victims of a pointless vandal attack this week.

Overnight on Tuesday, the Ford Falcon XR6 turbo and Ford Fairmont belonging to Michael Enever, 41, and his wife Kylie Konieczny, 42, had the back number plates ripped from them, despite the tamper-proof screws.

The four badges on Mr Enever’s Falcon were also stolen and both cars were scratched.

The number plates to both cars are distinctive — Ms Konieczny’s was bright pink and read “Kylie K” while Mr Enever’s was “F4RD”.

The parents to two young children — Nathan Enever, 5, Ashton Enever, 3 — said there can’t be much use for the number plates aside from decoration.

“Honestly, what are you going to do with it? “No one is going to put it on their car,” Mr Enever said.

The couple said it would cost them almost $1000 to fix the cars as the excess on their two insurance policies would be more expensive to cover.

Mr Enever, a plumber, said he would struggle to fix the damage to the two cars.

“We both work hard for our money and people come along and not respect how much time and effort we put in,” he said.

The couple have urged anyone who spots their number plates to phone police.
