Guess someone wanted his tire really badly…

Saw this while walking in Palermo the other day:

I guess this is a pretty valuable wheel or someone just wanted it really, really badly.  Seriously though, this was a busy street and someone managed to jack up the car, steal the wheel, remove the jack and take off.  They did leave the lug nuts laying all over the street though so at least the guy can use his spare tire.

The topic of crime in Buenos Aires deserves its own post, which I hope to get to one day…


Grand Theft Auto Buenos Aires

I’m not quite sure where this video came from, but it seems to have been making the rounds on a number of video sharing sites.  It shows a pretty brazen daytime car theft on the streets of Buenos Aires.  Looks like a pretty good technique though I have no idea why they are stealing that car. It looks like it could barely run.
