Caamnry, Accord most popular
among auto thieves last year
DETROIT (AP) - The Toyota Camry and Honda
Accord dominate another list of most-popular vehicles
nationwide, but it's nothing their makers relish.
The two models hold 17 of the top 25 spots in a ranking
of vehicles most stolen in the Unifed States last year,
according to CCC Information Services Inc., an insurance
industry tracker of trends in theft and other vehicle damage.
The 1989 Camry led the way for the fourth year in a row,
followed by 1990, 1991 and 1988 versions. Honda's 1994.
1996, 1990 and 1995 Accords placed fifth, sixth, eighth and
Overall. five Camry models and a dozen of the Accords
placed among the top 25 in Chicago-based CCC's yearly list
released yesterday. Last year's list had 19 Camrys and
Reflecting a growing appetite for pickup trucks among
thieves. the 1994 Chevrolet C 1500 4x2 pickup truck placed
seventh - up four spots while the 1997 Ford F-150 4x2
pickup came in ninth. In last year's listing, the F-150 model
placed fifth as the only vehicle in the top 10 - foreign or
domestic that wasn't a Camry or Accord.
Also of note: 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4 sport utility
vehicle placing 20th, marking the first time an SUV made
the list in four years, CCC spokeswoman Jeanene O'Brien
Absent from the list for the first time in at least four years
is the Chevrolet Caprice, perhaps reflecting declining con-
sumer appeal for domestic mid- and large-sized domestic
sedans, O'Brien said.
Still, cases of major vehicle theft dropped 8.5 percent in
2000, following a 15 percent decline the year before. CCC
said its data showed.
Observers say Camrys and Accords remain popular
among thieves because there's a great demand for their
spare parts. they have been top-sellers for years and can be
driven for hundreds of thousands of miles.

Thomas outlined the process of
applying and receiving a grant.
The first stage of the process.
known as "peer review." involves the
use of nongovernmental experts in
the given field scoring the applica-
tions based on their evaluations of the
merits of the study.
In the next stage, the application is
evaluated by the National Advisory
Council of the NIII.
For final approval, the application
is sent to the director of the particular
division that has oversight on the type
of grant being evaluated by the NIH,
such as the National Lye Institute.
which evaluates eye research grants.
Some of the criteria the NIHl takes
into account are the significance of
the study, which Thomas defined as
whether "the study addresses a partic-
ular problem." and the environment in
which the study is to be done.

gan s home game against Indiana this
year and have voiced their hope that
Michigan would hire him to replace
Brian I°llerbe as head coach for much
of the year.
"Pitino would have an instant
impact." University alum Jason Witler
said. "Ie would bring integrity back to
Witler and friends Joe Johnson, Dan
Klemptner and Jennifer Kreszak orga-
nized a petition pleading with Pitino to
choose Michigan. Approximately 4.000
students signed the petition. which was
later faxed to Pitino's home in Boston.
The foursome is planning a rally at
noon today on the Diag to show support
for bringing Pitino to Ann Arbor.
"I thought it would take a spark to
start a fire," Johnson said. "I thought it
would be a snowball efiect."
Apparently, the snowball impressed
Pitino. "He said I'll cherish that forev-
er."' Lobel said regarding his discussion
with Pitino about the petition.
Before coaching the Celtics. Pitino
coached at the University of Kentucky,
the New York Knicks. Providence Uni-
versity and Boston University. Ile won
the 1996 national title with Kentucky
and took the Wildcats to the Final Four
in 1993 and 1997 as well. In 19F he
coached Providence to the Final Four.
But Lobel said that Pitino's next stop
will be his last. "That's what his plans
are," Lobel said. "He'd like to coach
another six, seven, maybe 10 years.
And Michigan and Louisville are his
only options right now. His only other
option right now is not to coach this
year but he wants to get back in to it, as
long as it's the right job."
Former Michigan Athletic Director
Bo Schembechler told The Detroit
News last weekend that it would be a
mistake for the University to pay its
basketball coach more money than
football coach Lloyd Carr.
"I've got two words for you never
happen:' Schembechler said.
Pitino was rumored as a candidate
for the job opening at Michigan in
1989, when Bill Frieder left Michigan
before Steve Fisher led Michigan to the
national title as interim coach.
