Ain't that the truth! Back when I was just out of HS in 1971, I worked at GE's Schenectady, NY plant (along with 29000 others). Went out to the parking lot after punching out, got in my '70 VW bug and started it up. Something wasn't quite right, and it was then I realized it wasn't my car! Mine was parked several rows over. Same model, year, color, and locks...
