How to get your car nicked

It appears that one of our neighbours is trying to get their car stolen. A say this because it’s been sitting out there on the street (rather than in its car space) for the better part of a week now. With the passenger side window down.

Call me crazy, but if that’s really what they’re trying to do, I think the reason they haven’t been successful yet because it’s not exactly the Wheels Car Of The Year. It’s a 1973 Toyota in charming rusting blue (and I don’t mean that’s the type of blue; I mean it’s rusting).

We considered stealing it ourselves, but for the fact that (a) it’s a crap car, and (b) if we parked it anywhere close to home it would be noticed!
