yea, I'll likely always have at least one vintage vehicle. Old motorcycle, sports car or truck; something you can push start for sure.

2008 Versys 650

Been riding 8 or 9 years, and have owned 8 or 9 bikes; its an addiction I can't quit...

Onstar lists that as a feature. Just call them if your car is stolen and it will tell the police where its at...slow it to a halt...and kill the engine.

Not too cool when some computer dork does it for kicks.
