  2. Now if we told you how we secured our rides then it wouldn't really be secure then, would it?

    Alarms, lights, locks and guns. Along with some great neighbors, who watch out for one another really well.:cool:

    A pro can always get your car, however, with the expense of some of these cars, I would invest in a GPS locator.

    The most important thing is to buy good Insurance that will give you what you need (+ a little more) to replace your car if it disappears. If someone really wants your car they'll figure out a way to take it from you.

    If you want it back, try two different GPS/Cell tracking devices on it.

    hahahaha!!!

    I actually chained my 61 Dodge to a pole when I had to leave it out for a while. took the battery out as well.

    I'd guess most thieves don't bring giant bolt cutters with them to steal a car.

    As far as disabling a trailer, the quickest and easiest way is to pull the trailer break-away cable and take it with you. The brakes will be locked up. It's kind of tough taking the truck too, with the trailer brakes dragging all the way. Just put the cable back in when you're ready to go.

    As far as the car in the trailer, I flattened the rear tires. Not too many going to steal a car out of a trailer carrying a spare air tank.

    As far as disabling the tow vehicle, there's all kinds of ingenious ways to disable it.
