BAD BOY, BAD BOY. What'cha gonna do, what'cha gonna do when they come for you? Speed away, probably! In the fictional world, we've seen tons of films that are centered around a heist. You might've even thought that if you were ever to do one, in your imagination, these are the steps you would take, but what car would be waiting for you? Plan a heist and we'll take a guess at your getaway car!
While many of us see heists occurring in film, there are quite a few that actually happened! Forty years ago in 1978, there was the Lufthansa heist that took place at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York. This was an inside job where the thieves got away with $6 million worth of cash and jewels. You can even see this heist recreated in the 1990 crime film, Goodfellas.
Some heists aren't centered around money or jewelry, but paintings that cost millions of dollars. Just in 1990, two men performed a heist in a Bostom museum where they made off with 13 items, including paintings by renowned artists like Degas and Rembrandt. This heist equated to $200 million!
With these heists in mind, how would your heist go down? Would your goal include cash, jewelry, or paintings? What time of the day would you strike? How many people would be part of the job?
These questions are important but your answers are what we need! Plan a fictional heist and we'll guess what kind of getaway car you're driving! Hurry up before you see the red and blue lights!
