Because you can break in with a pencil I've done that before for a friend with keys locked inside.

"...the most stolen color was white, followed by red, blue, black and green." rut roh...another form of the white curse?
Bill, do you mean you can break into a Camry with a pencil?
I believe it was a Camry that one of my friends was telling me she took to a mechanic and when she went to leave they got her car mixed up with another the same color and she actually unlocked it and got in before she realized it wasn't hers....so apparently the keys were the same

Like Bill said..it boils down to how easily one can break in, and availability. Common cars=common theft. I also wonder if people junk their cars and claim they were stolen so they can get $$ out of the insurance company for a new one. Probably not that often...

LOL, I've heard the same story with H-body Buicks somewhere.

Um, how common is it that you buy three vehicles and it turns out their keys will work in every one of the three? My brother has a 1990 Dodge Ram Van B150, 1989 Chrysler New Yorker Landua, and a 1990 Chrysler New Yorker 5th Avenue. He only carries one trunk and one door/ignition key now.
