    ...or at least the low-class thugs that steal cars in IA love domestics.

    Re: Most stolen cars by state

    I'm guessing it's a product of how many of each are out there in Iowa and which ones are left unlocked with the keys in them. I doubt there's a lot of car thieves in Iowa so most thefts are just kids finding a car unlocked with the keys in them and going for a joy ride. I know it happens around here a lot (relatively).

    Re: Most stolen cars by state

    I have a feeling that more cars are stolen in California in a day than a year in Iowa.

    Looks like newer cars are harder to steal.

    Re: Most stolen cars by state

    I had my 90 accord stolen from the parking lot of the Westbrook apts. The morons drove to minnesota and tried to get gas without paying. Needless to say, they were caught on camera. They were minors so the names werent released, so no epic beatdown ensued. They had already stripped my car of stuff but hey I got it back I guess.

    True but there is probably also more demand for used parts on these older cars.

    Re: Most stolen cars by state

    the '93 Lumina is killing me. Do these crooks not have the $50 needed to buy one legally?

    As is the '97 Cavalier. Sometimes it's no wonder that Iowa carries the rep that it does nationally...

    Re: Most stolen cars by state

    I'd like to see these stats as a percentage of each car that is out there. i.e. - Does 1 of 1000 acccords get stolen, vs 1 of 100 mercedes?

    And why would anyone file a police report if their 1993 Lumina was stolen? I can't imagine anybody would be carrying insurance coverage other than liability on a sixteen y/o Lumina...
