I'm gonna say this is a 1970's chevelle coupe. Or inspired by it. ‎ (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

I actually never realized how true the stealing part actually is until the 2014 FIFA World Cup (Soccer) because whenever the German team played there was so much stuff stolen here in Germany. I know somebody who worked at a gas station during the finals. She was robbed, she pressed "the button" and like 20 minutes later, during half-time-break, the security people rang her up and asked if something was wrong... On the other hand I know one security guy who takes his job very seriously and explicitly works the shifts during major games so he can makes extra rounds when the games is ongoing. Well about the World Cup I remember it was later assumed by the police that during the finals (Germany playing) the majority of the vehicles on the roads were either transporting stolen stuff and such or where actually being stolen themselves... 08:20, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

"Randall may have chosen to use a car as a reference to the obscene amount of car commercials that play during the super bowl." does not seem to be the most likely reason. Many people watch games in their homes. A home burglary would be more difficult at such time. Stealing a car on the street would be much simpler since there would be less people on the street. A car also happens to be one of the more valuable items that can be stolen on a street. -- Flewk (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Almost no one will be working then so you might as well go steal things from offices, and no one can stop you because they'll all be at home. Come to think of it, you might as well go rob a bank. Herobrine (talk) 07:46, 5 May 2018 (UTC)
Offices and especially banks tend to be secured better than cars. At least to get my work laptop, you have to get onto the premise (card required, barbed wire fence, guards), then into the department (card required or breaking thick window in door), then into the room (key required or another window in door), then into the drawer container (key, paperclip or just pulling hard). And then you only have a laptop with password and encrypted hard drive. And some bank vaults can resist considerable explosions, not to mention the security cameras and that it's highly suspicious to have a big amount of cash. If I needed money that badly, I would rather go for the car. Fabian42 (talk) 08:15, 7 June 2018 (UTC)
