    The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) released its annual Hot Wheels report this month. The good news is that auto thefts declined in 2018, according to the FBI. The bad news? NICB is still doing a running tally of all the rides ripped away from their owners, putting the 2000 model-year...
