Hi! I’m George Stonebrook for Expert Village
here talking to you today about preventing theft to your vintage car. We’ve talked about
many ways of keeping a car from being taken. One of the easiest ways of course is removing
the keys. The things you might not think about doing is perhaps the newer cars come with
a locking steering columns but in cars this vintage, there is nothing that locks the steering
wheel itself. So anyway a car can come out of gear or park, that car could be driven.
One of the things that is on the market and available is a device called a steering wheel
immobilizer. They have names like the club.Most of them are made out of a very difficult to
break steel. An idea is to clamp them around the steering wheel itself and then reach down
to where the brake pedal is thereby eliminating the movement of the steering wheel. Some of
them are lengthwise so that the steering wheel can only go a certain vintage, can actually
go around and some of them are just made so that the steering wheel can’t move at all.
That is just one of the issues that has been corrected. One of the small things you can
do to prevent your car from being stolen.
