With the factory setup you can't bypass the theft system, it would require programmed keys.

If you have lost both keys, then you only have two options: take the car to the dealership or call a locksmith to reprogram to the to the PATS (passive anti-theft system). However, if you have access to a tuner or chip, you can turn off the PATS, but then you'd be investing more money than necessary. Especially since its going to be a Destruction derby car.

You've probably found a solution already but when the chip reader malfunctioned in my '98 Buick Lesabre, a friend of mine was able to bypass the system for me by installing a resistor to fool the computer into thinking it was still reading the chip.
