I have the Die Hard security battery, and I keep the car locked in the garage. An added measure of comfort is the fact that my carb needs to be rebuilt. The car will go about 10 feet and die unless it sits for about 5 minutes at idle before being driven anywhere. I can't tell you how many times I have pushed it back into the driveway after it stalled in front of my house.

You have to prove you own the car before you get the key,I would think.Especially the coded keys from 1986.

I keep it in my shop, with the garage doors locked - with the tools in there - does that really make a difference ?

Alarm system and my 180lb St Bernard.

Default So what if they use a tow truck is there no defense against this?

no no no, you see, the key is, the best security system is a pillow and a bat, sleep in the car, if somebody opens the door, beat the crap out of the, very simple, lojack isnt half as effective
