Frankly,I'm relieved.

Think about it,would you rather go out to your Honda and find it stolen OR your Bonneville and find it still there?????

I know which I'd rather do!!!

personally i love having the bonneville on the least stolen list.

what i think helps is our VATS systems in the 92-99'* and the passlock in the newer ones. and the fact that theyre bonnevilles, to the naked eye they look like family sedan grocery getters, nobody knows they have raw power under the hood unless theres a supercharged badge on it.

I've been accused of being over protective of my Bonneville and i don't mind that it'* on the least stolen list. I'd rather wake up in the morning and see it in my driveway then to be crying my eyes out thinking what some punk is doing to it. I wonder if i showed this to my insurance company would it bring my rates down?... J/K

Thieves target what is easy to get and what they can get rid of easiest. Notice what is most commonly stolen is what there already is a huge abundance of, what Drifter calls toilet cars because everyone seems to have one. Except I dont know how the Corrado made it on there, I hardly ever see those anymore.

Remember, you can get some mad cash for some of those import parts. Bonneville parts (amongst other cars on the same platform) are cheap, and usually not worth the time. It'* simple business.
