Happy Friday the Thirteenth!
This is the sight that greeted me this morning. Well, what actually woke me up was my neighbor stopping by let me know that our car had been broken into- then I saw the car.
Who ever did this should be totally ashamed of themselves: not only because they are a thieving vandal, but because this is totally an amateur job. I'm sick of people not taking the time to a job right. Whatever you do, take some pride in it. Seriously, breaking a window to get into a 1992 Honda? Totally overkill. These cars are known for their ease of stealing the whole car, let alone the swiftness with which you can unlock the manual locks with a coat hanger. Come on! Try a little. Why not take the entire car? If you settle for this level of amateur smash-and-grab you're never going to get anywhere.
Also, they totally need to learn how to target a better radio if that's what they are after. We had a cheap after-market radio in the car. The brand was Kenwood, I think. Ever heard of Kenwood? Didn't think so. Next time, steal a Sony. Did a 1992 Honda strike you as likely to have a particularly nice sound system? Actually, the cheap Kenwood radio didn't work properly. Once you turned it off, you probably can't get it back on again, which means you stole a box of useless wires, so I guess the joke's on you. The front speakers in the car don't work either, but you courteously left them in place.
If you were going to be truly courteous, you would have broken the windshield. It costs much less to replace and is easier to install too.
