Evolution and the FuManchu Volkswagon stealing machine

An analogy I heard the other night at a discussion involving evoloserism which struck pretty much everybody as unusually funny:

Picture it being about 1965 or thereabouts at the absolute height of the popularity of the little VW beetle-bug, and the evil Dr. Fu Manchu devises a way to get rich(er) in the grand-theft auto business by creating a machine to steal large numbers of the beetle-bugs; he takes a plastic mold of a beetle-bug with its doors closed and windows up and shortly has fleets of large trucks going down the streets at night with huge vacuum devices ending in hard rubber attachments which fit straight over a beetle bug, attach to it via suction, lift it up, and put it in the truck.

Shortly all VW owners are living in mortal dread, and are chaining their beetle-bugs to large trees at night.

All except Suzie Johnson that is. Suzie crashed her VW into a tree at about 12 mph; bent up the hood, the right front fender and the passenger door rather badly but, other than that, it still runs decently enough. The frame wasn't damaged and the engine and drive train were in the rear. And, naturally enough, the damage would prevent Fu Manchu's device from fitting her VW or stealing it.

The 64,000 question is, would anybody refer to the crash damage as a "beneficial modification"??

@Sglass,
Try this:

'an elephant stepped on a big black bug and the big black bug bled thick black blood'.....

. They would refer to it as "after market modification by some insane idiot who believes that Dr FuManchu is actually real"
