Security through obscurity?

An attempted stick up was confounded by a car’s stick shift, when a would-be carjackers failed to understand the mechanics behind a manual transmission. 
Randolph Bean tells WOFL FOX 35 that two men attempted to steal his 2002 yellow Corvette at gunpoint outside an Orlando hospital, but they ended up running away after they couldn’t figure out how to drive his car. 
"They apparently couldn't start it,” Bean 51, is quoted as saying in a police report. “I had to tell him four different times to push in the clutch, because it's a standard transmission."
