Summary
"As early as 1910 Americans recognized that cars were easy to steal and, once stolen, hard to find. A car was its own getaway vehicle, and cars looked much alike. Model styles and colors eventually changed, and so did the means of making a stolen car disappear. Though changing license plates and serial numbers remain basic procedure, thieves have created highly sophisticated networks to disassemble stolen vehicles, distribute the parts, and/or ship the altered cars out of the country. Stealing cars naturally has become as technologically advanced as the cars themselves"--Provided by publisher
