How to steal a Chevy

I've already posted stories on how to steal VW's but now I am going to confess about stealing Chevrolet's. This also works for Pontiac's too, and pretty much any other GM car that has a tilt steering lever on the right side of the steering column.

This is a story I can't tell because I'd get arrested so I guess it qualifies for this blog.

First gain access to the Chevy. I used to pop the whole keylock out of the door with a flat head screwdriver. Takes a bit of work, much better to find a chevy with an open door.
Once inside, snap off the tilt steering lever on the side of the steering column. Don't break off the turn signal level, not having them later will be very heaty.

Once you break off the lever, remove some of the surrounding plastic with some pliers or something, you'll expose a saw-looking peice of silver metal. It will have jagged teeth facing up. That is the lever that will start the car.

Pull out everything else in there. You'll have to do some ripping out with the screwdriver. You'll find a black spring inside, that triggers the steering wheel lock.

If you remove enough stuff, the steering will unlock. If not, you'll have to put some effort into it.

The best way to break the steering lock is to turn the wheel until it locks and can't turn anymore. Then put your feet on the wheel and kick as hard as you can. After a few hard kicks, the steering wheel will turn. Now turn the wheel in the other direction and do it again until the steering lock breaks. Now you can drive.

Reach up and move that saw-toothed metal level and the car will start. That is your new key. Once you drive away, quickly find the exact same color and model car, then switch both front and rear license plates. This will buy you a day.

Within the first 36 hours of a car being reported stolen, it goes on the hotsheet. After the third day you can go driving in public, just be careful you don't get in an accident!

Some guy in some city that used to steal people's cars.
