THE LIST CAR THEFTS

Buy a cheap car and worry no more about it being broken into or stolen, right? Not quite. The worst record among newer cars belongs to the VW Cabriolet, a small, soft-top runabout. It's easier to slit open a convertible's roof. The Cadillac, of course, has snob appeal. Ditto the sporty Mustang. But the unexciting Honda Civic? Go figure. The least-hit list is more understandable: Those cars are family-oriented, and crooks don't find them sexy.EDITED BY LARRY LIGHT WITH RUTH COXETER
