The best insurance you can afford.Lojack is ok but a cop has to go looking for it and come with in so many yards of the car.Alarms are ok at slowing down a good theft.But today most use tow trucks take it somewhere and unhook the alarm on there own time.I drive a repo tow truck i have repoed many cars at night with the alarm screaming at 2am no one so much as looks out.Mine i have a alarm a fuel kill hidden and a locking t handle on the shifter.
just let your car look like hell, that way they go for something else! just messing. I'm thinking of adding in a switch under my battery tray that when not flipped properly will keep it from connecting. only problem is that I would have to pop my hood everytime and it would be easy to figure out for anybody that can follow a wire. Want something clever though.
I have a inline pump and there is a switch somewhere in the car to kill it.Some have talked about making a fake coil wire for when you park it over night or longer.Best thing i seen yet is The T-Lock i have one its simple and works.
I'll be installing an alarm with a pager feature, worked well on a previous car, that is if you like to catch the thief with his legs sticking out of the window....I may also hide a kill switch or if I get my batt. installed in the trunk take my cutoff key.
I drive mine in my small town a lot and leave the windows down/unlocked for most store stops, people are recognizing me and look at the car. There's usually someone friendly near it when i return.
I don't have a classic 'vert. But I have a '94 GT 'vert. I leave the top down. It's insured and if they want a $150 radio that's better than them cutting into a $400 top and stealing it. I also don't leave anything valuable in it when I park.
Take it from me, insure it and get it appraised. My 66 was stolen May 11, infront of a restuarant in Fremont California somewhere in the hours of 7-9:30pm. I had a detachable steering wheel anti-theft, so the steering wheel was not in the car when they took it.
If they want it bad enough, they will get it. I thought I was doing all the right things. Had the steering wheel off, parked under a light, a well populated area, and no one saw ANYTHING.
I too thought, hey my car is unique and I know alot of people, all the mustang mechanics in the area, all the parts guys, been to all the car shows; someone would have to be a fool to steal it, and would immediately get caught if they do. Sorry, that was not the case. Its been 4 weeks and it still has not turned up.
Protect it with insurance, tons of pictures, reciepts, and an appraisal.
If you want a laugh my friend has a 78 f150 they broke out his window the door wasn't even locked and they stole a radio that didn't work.Thuggin your car was probably towed off its faster for them and most don't think a tow truck is stealing a car.
