Cars stolen by a too fabulous gang of thieves have turned up in cities all around the South, including Memphis. This opening paragraph from The Birmingham News says it all: "A band of cross-dressers has been stealing cars from dealerships around Alabama to drive throughout the Southeast to competitions for men who parade on stage in women's clothing, police said. They don't send the cars to chop shops or sell them at too-good-to-be-true prices; they just cruise for a while in flash and style and then abandon the cars, often near gay nightclubs. `I guess they just wanted to look good when they got there,' Birmingham auto theft Sgt. D.P. Smith said Monday."
