A Corvette owner was almost carjacked at gun point, but the would-be thieves ran away, because they couldn't figure out how to drive his car. Randolph Bean was waiting for his wife to get out of work when two men took him by surprise while he was inside his bright, yellow Corvette. Randolph, 51, said one of the thieves pointed a gun at him while asking how to use the car. "They apparently couldn't start it. I had to tell him four different times to push in the clutch, because it's a standard transmission." The suspects finally gave up and ran away, leaving Randolph on the ground.
