New Series Launches On Theft Prevention & Protection
by Andrea L. Algar
With classic car and muscle car thefts on the rise, owners are rightly becoming very concerned. It seems that every few days we're getting news of a theft.
Keeping Our Rides Safe
Guy Algar and I, through Classic Car News, are launching a new series called "Keeping Our Rides Safe". Each week we'll look at a different aspect of keeping our classic cars out of the hands of would-be thieves. We'll begin with the basics of theft prevention, theft protection, insurance, self-deterrent steps, safety outside the home, alarms, locks, anti-theft devices, tracking and recovery systems and more. We will take a close look at each in detail, as well as reporting on new products and systems that can help, interviews with law enforcement, reader stories and more.
All this is designed with the classic car or muscle car owner in mind, as our needs are a quite different than the average modern car driver.
