They may be vintage rides with pristine paint jobs and immaculate interiors, or they may be beat-up jalopies held together with duct tape and hope, but the top 10 most stolen vehicles in the U.S. for 2007 include several cars that are 10, 15 and 20 years old. Older Toyota and Hondas are the prime targets, according to data released today.

The two most stolen vehicles in the entire United States are in fact the 1995 Civic (pictured) and the 1991 Accord, respectively. Toyota's 1988 pickup truck slotted in at ninth to wrap up the three models in the top 10, according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau's statistics, reports MSNBC.

That these cars are also fairly high up the list of comfortable, reliable and - most importantly - efficient daily drivers may be no coincidence, with fuel prices rising the way they have this year. The fact that cars like these probably have little in the way of theft resistance devices or alarm systems just makes them easier targets.
