    Why would someone steal a 1997 Tahoe? Its Blue Book value is low, it gets lousy gas mileage, and there aren’t many similar vehicles driving around anymore so it should be noticeable. I’m sure owners of such vehicles like them, but I don’t understand why someone would steal a vehicle like this.

      Vehicles are stolen generally to get from point A to point B – NOT for resale value.

        And for committing crimes, like package theft etc.

    Older vehicles are also easier to steal as they have fewer security features.  On some popular models they are stolen and chopped up for parts resale but mostly, as WSB said it’s just “free” transportation for the crooks.

    The bigger observation is that car thieves are staking out the QFC parking garage. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
