Got this out of the Thursday'* Toronto Sun and don't know if we should be insulted or glad that the 1999 and 2001 Bonnevilles are on the Top 10 Least Stolen cars....

I wonder if these numbers are total stolen or per capita (# stolen per 1,000, say).




Cause for argument'* sake, if 100 Bonnevilles were around with 1,000 VW Corrados, well, you know what'll be stolen more in total.

yeah... 3 of 10 are H-bodies and the remainder is whatever the 2000+ was, the A?


Because I get raped with insurance because of my area (quite a sketchy area), that'll be duly noted for future car shopping.

I'd be relieved. Those lists just show that car thieves like rice and, therefore, have no taste

Chopping up those ricers can yield you some pretty good cash

Perhaps there are less older people than younger people that are stealing cars.

Yeah I was thinking alot of those cars are probably stolen to chop up since their parts have a high resale value. Personality I'm not insulted at all that our cars make the top 10 least stolen list.
