Once Again, Car Thieves Thwarted By Manual Transmission

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

For the umpteenth time, a pair of car thieves failed to steal a car because they couldn't drive stick.

Jamel Wilson, 18, and a juvenile pulled a gun on Broor Wilson in Knoxville, Tenn around 1:30 AM on Monday. One attempted thief got into the car, but when he couldn't use the manual transmission, the two fled on foot. Police quickly caught and arrested the two.

This isn't the first time this has happened, so we will continue to remind you that security is just one more reason to save the manuals.
