What's the fuss? It's only another Model A with wet wall tyres!

In my experience the justice system simply doesn't look on property theft as a big deal. Life was better when the vigilantes took care of thieves.

I never let my car out of my sight when I am out in public, that's all.

There are too many issues just trying to keep away from other idiots who can't drive.

I installed the door & rumble lock this past year. Heard of several theft stories at regional meets. Makes me feel a bit better with the extra security and keeping the hardware stock.

Had a friend in high school who would lift the hood, take the rotor out and put it in his pocket so the car couldn't be started.
