Triggerman Kills For '79 Monte Carlo Parts, Goes Free

When you read about some slimeball murdering someone on the orders of some dirtbag, you figure at least they're doing it in order to make a big score of some sort. You know, huge life-insurance policy, millions in gold bullion, etc- it's still reprehensible, but at least there's a twisted sort of logic to the scheme. But how about a Chevy Monte Carlo aficionado getting a 14-year-old to pop a cap in another Monte owner, in order to obtain free parts? And then the triggerman walks because he's over 25 by the time he gets busted? And we're talking about a 1979 Monte Carlo- not even a 454 car! Damn, society is locked in a downward spiral- where's Inspector Callahan? [San Francisco Chronicle]
