WTF Friday: Car Thief Dashes With Clunker

September 25, 2009

People are generally of two minds about Cash-for-Clunkers: either it was a brilliant piece of economic stimulation, or it was a big, steaming pile of stupidity. Similarly, we are of two minds about a car thief in Vineland, New Jersey, who made off with a 1997 Ford E350 Econoline van that had been traded in as a clunker. (And if ever there were a poster child for clunkers....) On the one hand, if you're going to steal something, why nab a vehicle that no one wants to be seen in? But on the other hand, maybe that's the point. [NJ via JV]
