Car theft dashed because would-be thieves were too dumb to drive stick shift

Maybe if more people drove vehicles with manual transmissions, less of them would get stolen.


This would almost be funny if not for the seriousness of the situation. Randolph Beane was waiting outside of an Orlando hospital to pick his wife up from work in his Corvette. He was later approached by his three would-be carjackers.

"Beene, 51, said one of the thieves pointed a gun at him while asking how to use the car. 'They apparently couldn't start it. I had to tell him four different times to push in the clutch, because it's a standard transmission.'"

Complete story from WOFL-TV (Fox) in Orlando

Cheers, all.
