That would be pretty bad for the owner if he/she was only there for 5 minutes

if you owned one of those tow trucks you could steal any car you want, even if they have the tilt alarm thing, people watching would just assume it was being towed for a legitimate reason

I thought about it, perhaps it needs to be rear wheel drive so the handbrake doesnt cause issues
A good thing every car worth stealing is rwd

As far as I know, you have to be a licensed repo dude to be able to have one of these, there are checks and audits done all the time as Chop Shops are a massive problem over there now days.

I have a contact over in California who keeps an eye out for cars worth buying and importing, but his main source of income is as a spotter for these repo guys, and he makes a very good living out of it.

AWD is just as easy but takes just a little longer, they lift the front up using the arm and fit Dollies, then grab the back and off they go.
