An old cheap socket and a five-pound hammer was enough to remove the
antitheft lugs on all four wheels of  Pontiac I was faced with.  The owner
had bought the car months earlier and had no idea what I was talking about
when I asked her where the antitheft wrench was.  I searched the entire car
looking for it.

Smashing an old socket onto the antitheft lug was enough to do the job.
Down a well wouldn't have made a bit of difference.  If the lugs would have
been rusted on, it probably would not have worked.
