For non-air bag cars one of coolest things are the Grant removable steering wheels. Dean clued me in years ago. This along with a couple of other things are probably enough for the majority of thefts. The truck could still be towed or dragged on a flat bed, but it's very difficult to smash and drive away with no wheel. The biggest worry I have with it is when you take off your nice Grant steering wheel you have to hide it so it doesn't get stolen...

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
