      My son had his 5th Gen Camaro stolen during Derby Week in Louisville, KY. It was black with exterior mods and a stick shift (only 6 cylinders, but it looked and sounded nice). He stayed in a shady part of town, went to bed one night, heard some noise in the middle of the night but thought it was a garbage truck or something, and woke up to an empty car spot. The local news reported many cars stolen that week with the main suspect being a tow truck style thief. Hook up your car, pull it away.
      He told me that he parks with his rear out, so I suspect that the thieves saw this and threw the rear up on the truck and pulled it away since it's a rear-wheel drive. Who knows, though.

    the ignition kill switch is good but instead put in on the starter. Mostly likely the car is an auto so they can’t bump start it. plus the starter is hidden away most of the time so crawling under the car is not worth the score.

    5:38 disabling the clutch isnt a %100 effective way of stopping someone from driving it. Although most cars need you to press the clutch to start, most older cars dont. and if the thief can hotwire the car, its as simple as starting the engine in first and floating the gears.

    Just wanna point out. If a thief really wants to steal your ride he'll find a way to do it. Be it breaking in your garage/home or dragging it away on a tow hitch. Also for the elitist drivers out there thinking Manual helps. Dont let that fool you into thinking your car is even slightly safe. It only helps if it's someone that panick easy an ditched the ride first start up unless someone comes out theyll keep trying. Eventually theyll just dump the clutch on first gear at high revs.
    Lost my s2k about 4 years ago. Was blue pearl, 2007, stock, around 70-90k miles. cops found it on a side dirt path secluded behind trees near the highway about 40 miles from my parkway. Car was stripped down to some of the frame (they cut the front half an rear chassis off. Doors,trunk,rims,tires,brakes, driveshaft,dash, carpet mats even. Just about everything was stripped. Only reason I was able to identify the car was the license plates an vin # on the inside of chassis near driver door.

    Manual transmission is pretty effective, any time I take my car in for service I like to try and see how long it takes them to start it and drive it into their service department, 9/10 times they stall it immediately

    2:47-3:22 = Cheap Steering Wheel Locks (like "The Club") are Garbage! There are videos where see ex-cons disabling or removing those "Locks" from Steering Wheels.
    5:38-5:40 = The Autolock is far superior, because it latches onto either the Clutch-Lever or Brake-Lever

    So many people saying a manual transmission will be a good antitheft.
    My mom's manual Subaru got stolen and they didn't have to break a window or the ignition. Much like older Hondas, 90s Subarus use interchangeable keys. So someone walked up, unlocked it, started the car, and drove away despite that whole mistaken belief that thieves don't understand how to use a clutch pedal.
    The car was recovered after about a week in *almost* the same condition, minus a stereo. The thief took the time to unscrew the dash to remove it, even, so it's someone who is probably no stranger to taking Subarus considering they're one of the most common cars on the road and you're not going to stand out when you're driving one, stolen or otherwise.
    A friend used to have a Honda CRX, manual transmission. It was stolen and recovered twice. The first time they took the stereo and the second time there was no stereo to take but they stole the car anyway. I feel like the Japanese must never have been concerned with grand theft auto back then because the cars are just so easy to take!

    Sadly the flamethrower wasn't all that effective. In South Africa it just increased the number of people shot in carjackings as thugs shot people upon approach so they couldn't use the flamethrower if they had one.

    Best anti theft is owning a standard/manual car. Here in the U.S. if it's too hard,makes you break a tear drop of sweat or makes them huff puff tap out like a 1min man 2 pump chump & standard they won't even bother.
    Wrong. The steering wheel locks can be cut & the damn bar can be slid out with a yank. The boot can be taken off. The clutch lock is a dam stupid joke. You obviously have never been involved in gta. If we want to steal your car we will get it. Just like installing the keyed wheel lug nuts 15mm,16,mm,17mm is the norm. What a joke. Impact drill with a smaller socket/bolt extractor will get that s**t right off.
