Coffee can?
You’d be surprised how many guys with exotics, collectors cars etc leave their cars in their garage with the keys inside them.
Seriously.
I know someone who’s Ferrari was nearly stolen (attempted, but the thief couldn’t figure out how to drive it ) who admitted that very matter of factly as if he couldn’t see how stupid that was.

Diablo - the folks with the collector cars typically keep the keys in them as part of their insurance coverage (collector and classic cars have different insurance requirements).

If there's a fire, anyone (fire fighters, neighbours, car thieves) can get them out of the garage would be the logic behind it.

I have had beater cars that I left the keys in thinking "who would want to steal that car?" The obvious answer is "someone with no car at all".

easy way to stop all the cyber crp is to do away with all the electronic do-dads. but then the cost of the cars would go down, making for smaller loans that pay less interest, and the banks won't stand for it.

If someone really wants to steal your car, they'll probably figure out a way ;).

Absolutely. That’s why the goal is to just change the risk/reward scenario to thieves such that someone else car is more appealing than yours. A gazelle doesn’t have to outrun a lion, it has to outrun the next slowest gazelle.

Drive a crappier car. Problem solved *and* you saved money. A win win!

Signed, guy who wants a nicer car.

Kind of strange off topic post, but way back when, when we used actual keys for cars, I had a '69 Camaro and a '73 Corvette at the same time, which had the exact same ignition key. That was a pretty weird coincidence.
