And if your just using a sticker, I doubt it would stop them.

I see many of those type of stickers on Ebay. Just wondering if they might make a potential thief think twice and move on.

Re: Overnighting at hotel or motel with your classic

Or put the sticker on the window when they pull the dummy GPS tracker by cutting the wires it activates a kill switch and cuts the car off.I used to live in the city and when I hooked a kill switch to my 66 Impala it was right behind the ashtray.All I would do is shut the car off and push the ashtray in and that would activate the kill switch.
When I got back in I would just pull the ashtray back out reach behind it and turn the kill switch back off.It works great just don't close the ashtray while you're on the highway.

Re: Overnighting at hotel or motel with your classic

I have something, but I'm not posting on the internet for the world to see. But yeah, nothing stops a tow truck other then cops.
Heck, a column shifter with no indicator, and a clutch pedal that doesn't connect to anything will confuse some people as it sits.

Put a car cover on...So it doesn't stand out...and on the tie down straps at front and back and middle attach a cow bell...So if someone cuts the strap there's a little noise...

Use a cover with the Ford logo. No one will take it.

Re: Overnighting at hotel or motel with your classic

I have a few tricks..
A hidden old iPhone with Twin sim on constant charge so you can run «find my iPhone» if it gets stolen.
Hidden switch for the horn, and a switch for the starter and Fuel pump. So that everytime someone tries to put ignition on the horn goes off and its impossible to start it without tinkering.

Re: Overnighting at hotel or motel with your classic

For anyone that thinks they're shoot at the thief, consider this. Here in Indy a couple months ago a guy had his flatbed truck stolen. A few days later he saw it being driven and tried to stop the driver. Driver wouldn't stop so the owner shot him through the windshield and killed him (assumed thief). Shooter (legal owner) was charged with murder.

I've posted this many times before and receive mixed responses. You do whatever you feel is appropriate for deterance.

This is my choice. And yes, I wear it in plain view.

Re: Overnighting at hotel or motel with your classic

So what about the fob that sends a signal? Who makes it? Where do you get it?

Re: Overnighting at hotel or motel with your classic

I use 4 of these on my trailer wheels. I like them.

They can be used on a car, if there is not too much junk in your trunk.
