Re: free car, no keys (patriotofchaos)

I assume that you didn't drive it because the steering interlock is probably engaged preventing the steering wheel from being turned. Too bad that hot-wiring won't disengage the steering lock. If you like the car, then take it, but get a locksmith over there to make a new key...hopefully with the previous owner there to show some ID and vouch that the car isn't actually being purloined. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emcocktl.gif" BORDER="0">
