I'll keep a lookout for it.

Ironic, I was living in Napa when my 64 1/2 was stolen out of the drveway of my folks house. What's even more ironic is that my Step-Dad is the Chief of Police! The car was never found. . .

Take a look here for a listing of MCA affiliated clubs in California...

The VMF is one of the most widely used Mustang resources on the a pic of the car and the VIN here and it'll get everywhere in no time flat...

Criminals often are pretty stupid....lots of kids enjoy a little joy ride then dump the car...
One VMFer recently had a car stolen and found it in a ditch....

Don't give up hope....and remember, the squeaky wheel gets the grease...

I've been thinking about gettig an Imobilizer for my cars. What it is is a computer chip or special key depending on the brand you get. This chip or key plugs into a 'brain box' that is entirely wired in to the electrical system of your car. Without this chip or key, the car is totaly dead. And if a theif manages to find the box, all the wires coming in and out of it are the same color so theres no way to bypass the thing. Better than an alarm I think.

Someone please buy my Ski Doo!

That SUCKS!!! I've been there, although it was a '92.

I am working on a shifter lockout like the late models use for my C4 equiped stang, but it will be activated by a hidden method, plus I have an alarm and several kill switch features. You have to make it as hard for them as possible, but in the end if they are a pro they will get it anyway so you need good insurance for your pride and joy.
