I can probably surmise -- car was probably jacked up on expensive rims worth the amount of the car, with a huge sound system in the trunk, someone was watching the car for a while, and they stole it. I guess when you can't drive fast in NYC you at least look good cruising around heavy traffic at 25mph. :P
I know a lot of those cars that are found stolen in Newark usually come from NYC. My mother's friend had hers stolen in Brunswick and it ended up being joy ridden by a 16 year old crack whore from juvie all over Brooklyn before she got caught.
