    Hey - I'm just sayin' I'd grab a new one or a rare/expensive one if I was going to risk hard time.

    I have a 93 vert myself, and while it does not have the 'rare' aqua and white color scheme, it does have the tasteful Polo Green and tan combination that Martha Stewart once commented on enviously.

    I better start locking it when I park it.

    If you are stealing a car at a car show, get one that will blend in and you won't get caught to begin with.

Any chance the owner left the keys in and had someone take it insured at 150% of value ? There is a ton of insurance fraud taking place every day and companies so greedy to take your money they insure at values no one on the street would ever pay.
    Just seems too unlikely without a key in hand to drive it away.
    Remember this is a 62. Simple ignition that if left unlocked IIRC can be started without even needing a key. Heck I was given a truck without a key and similar ignition, my first one and I had it running in a short time and I didn't know what I was doing at the time. I suspect most people don't insure their cars for what they're truly worth, likely too costly for most. Add a 20 yr ownership and it's likely more a member of the family than a car.

    My thoughts.
