People will steal anything if they get the chance. Around here, you gotta watch your shit, cos someone will walk off with it. I haven't had anything stolen off of this truck yet, but I haven't even had it for two months yet. And I guess it helps that it looks like shit, so nobody would want to steal anything off it.
I've had stuff like that happen before. When I was a kid, someone stole all the wheels off my Dad's Pinto during a hurricane and left the car on blocks. IN A HURRICANE. HOW.
