Good news! My parents' car was found in Oakland. Seems to be in good shape, too.

I bet the thief drove around for a day with the windshield wipers going, realized he didn't know how to get them to turn off, and just ditched the car in frustration. (The secret involves jamming a pen under the windshield wiper knob. I guess it pays not to get those kinds of things fixed!)

This guy I knew in college got his car stolen, and the police found it a couple weeks later. It had been given a tuneup and oil change, so he actually came out ahead.

Ha! A friend of mine was telling me about the time this friend of her's got her car stolen, and she got it a week later, and it had a full tank of gas, which was awesome since the friend was down to her last 2 bucks and couldn't afford any gas!

Yay! I'm so glad they got it back.
