Default Car Thieves - Will They Stop at Nothing?

I scanned this photo from the local paper about a chopping operation on a farm near me. They had hundreds of cars there (no Saabs). But look what else I found in the picture...

Dude your so right, once they fit the massive Fisher Price power plant and trannie into the Little Tykes then they realy go to town. Chopped and channeled, lowered and louvred you'd never recognise it. Then they implant the cpu from the infamous Sesame Street Hokey-Pokey Elmo and then you've got yourself one...........slick...........ride.

They're obviously in to "ringing" cars too, there's a clone of the FisherPrice motor in the top right of the picture.....

:-?

(I suspect they're dealing with drivers of a common mental age )
