    I didn't click on the link but why would you waste time picking the lock when you could break out a hacksaw and cut the b!tch off...

    SO I guess you'd rather be left in the dark? Security by obscurity saves no one - except the criminal...

    don't it suck that we even have to worry about it? where i work in detroit they swipe car's while people are outside, they don't care if you see them, literally, they will take it right in front of you with a gun and stare at you like what are you going to do about it. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gifto /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    Those things are worthless anyhow. It only takes about a second to cut the steering wheel, and they literally fall off without even touching the lock. People who buy them are just fooling themselves with a false sense of security.

    I still think it would be hysterical to create a locking mechanism for the Doubler so that when you park it's sitting there in 4:1 Low Range.

    Swap out the RPM pellet in your MSD 6AL box for one that limits the engine to, say, around 2000RPM.......??


    How funny would THAT be....watching a thief making his 2MPH getaway in your K5. So slow in fact, that you could walk right up to them while they're driving and give 'em a little "justice" of your own!



    ...Sorry, just another random set of synapses firing....... /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    My Buddy is a lock smith. He could make keys for any lock he has the blank for in 10 minutes or less. He can get into almost any house in less then 30 seconds right through the front door with no damage. Vats, Fords equivelent....a minor inconvience that takes an extra 5-10 minutes to deal with. Only car companies that he cant handle is Mercedes and BMW. Their locks are VERY hard to deal with.

    Any toyota made in the late 80's can usualy be started with any toyota key that fits.

    Locks ate to keep the mildly honest from doing things.

    Why not post it on the internet.. The people that you got to worry about already know this stuff. At least it would save the honest folks who lost the key to the club on their car a option.

    Actually I posted it so people wouldn't think (like I used to) that a Club is much of a deterrent and that you don't have to cut the steering whell to get it off.
