(pssssttt::Your insurance company doesn't just give you however much you claim it was worth.)

It's always entertaining to read the car damage reports and see how inflated people's opinions of their cars are. I've seen the 15 year old 2x2 pickup valued at $15,000:and the 9 year old Grand Am, above, valued at $10,000 (the 2009 models are out now). I swear, people really believe their insurance company will just give them whatever they claim it's worth.

Man oh man, is it really that easy? I have a 2001 Volkswagen Jetta valued at 17,000...someone should steal it.
