Try that with a 1968 car

The world stands aside to let anyone pass who knows where he is going.

"Their hack enables surveillance too: They can track a targeted Jeep’s GPS coordinates, measure its speed, and even drop pins on a map to trace its route."

At a local weekly car show, the same exact same thing was mentioned about Big Brother keeping an eye out for who knows what reason.

I got the recall notice in the mail today for my 2015 Grand Cherokee. It said they have a plug in device that upgrades the computer against hacking. We'll see.
(I guess if I go rob a bank Big Brother will know.)
