On the Saturday night before Halloween, some lowlife scum broke into our car and stole our stereo sans faceplate (which was stowed away nicely in our office). I have a feeling said lowlife scum was/were upset to find, other than the faceplate-less stereo, only the remnants of a previous break-in that had happened a year before.

Last night, lowlife scum struck yet again, easing their way into our car with what must be a master key – something that seems to be the tool of choice among the scum that have broken into our car thus far. This time, they got away with nothing more than some sunglasses – an item I didn't anticipate having a need for until mid-2005 anyway.

At this point the break-ins serve as nothing more than humor to me, but I just have to ask – what on earth possesses someone to break into a car with the Club on the steering wheel and a gaping hole where the stereo used to be?

I've said it before, but I'll say it again: ignorance better be bliss.

I don't know....maybe you should put an empty soup can on the dash and tape a note to it that says "Lock Replacement Fund--Contributions Being Accepted--Please Give Generously As I Have Nothing More To Give To You".

Worth a shot anyway.

I feel your pain, About a month ago our car was broken into. Someone smashed out the passenger side window to gain entry. They routed through the whole car things were out of place. Didn't look like they took anything. I heard something in the trunk when I went to take it out to clean the glass up.

I popped the trunk.... They took the dummy tire. Of all the things they could have stolen. Money, Stereo... They just wanted a spare tire I guess. They broke the window of an identical car that parks in the underground parkade where we park our car. I never did ask the owners of that vehicle if they still had their spare. Heh people seem to break into things for the most pointless things.

Incidentally, you ought to know that the Club won't prevent people from driving away with your car if they can get it started.

All you have to do is cut the steering wheel and slide it off. Having to replace a steering wheel will be offset by selling your car.

Just thought you might want to know that.
