Carjackers Stumped By Stick Shift
ORLANDO, FL-- Two men carjacked a Corvette at gunpoint, but were no match for the manual transmission.
Randolph Bean, 51, was sitting in his car when two armed men approached him on Sunday night. Bean says he was forced from his car and held on the ground at gun point by one man while the other climbed into the vehicle.
However, neither of the carjackers could figure out how to start the car. "I had to tell him four different times to push in the clutch, because it is a standard transmission.''
When they discovered the car was a stick shift, the men took Bean's wallet, keys, and phone and fled the scene. He has now stored his Corvette in a safe spot.
