spring is finally here and I finally got the cutlass finish enough where I can drive it daily. now I'm wondering what I need to do to keep it from getting stolen. I get a lot of compliment on the car so I know it stands out. my plan are to get a really good alarm system, kill switch for the car and motion security system for the house. I'm also think of buying the booth, if it work for law enforcement it can't hurt. I don't want to put it in storage and go get when I want to drive it. so just wondering what some of you guys that has been at this for a while are doing to protect your ride.

yeah a lock will only stop an honest thief. Typically I just pop the hood, pretend to check the oil and disconnect the 12v + to the coil or pull off the battery terminal. In the summer would leave the windows down and doors unlocked if I were to grab a burger or some ice cream. I dont keep anything of value in there. Probably worth more insured if somebody took it anyways.

Its very loud, and also I too turn the wheel all the way to one lock. I keep a stock stereo in it to dissade radio theft, plus i still have 1000 tapes and theyre cheaper than phone data.
