We remember two years ago, when our Dodge was stolen in SF and recovered in Oakland, riding through the massive tow yard with two other guys. One had had his 5.0 Mustang yanked from his driveway in Cupertino and lost his brakes, blower, cylinder heads and intake manifold. Unbelievably, the other victim with us was even more unfortunate. His Integra was missing the front clip, motor, trans and seats. Plus, his wheels had been replaced with steelies so the crooks could easily dump his car. According to a survey by CCC, the Integra still remains a popular theft target, while the soon-to-be-discontinued RSX didn't even make the the top 20 on the list. Is there a correlation?
