Hey guys! Pretty much what it says on the tin - I'm looking for some advice on keeping my old car as secure as I can.


I'm going to be moving back to the city soon, and I'd like to continue living in a hostel on the edge of the CBD. They've got free parking, and I've got a little Suzuki Carry from the late 80s that I'd love to have around.

The problem is that this van, with no real anti-security other than mechanical locks on the doors, is going to be in a parking lot that's open to the street, and kind of visible from there too. Being a cool little weirdo car like it is, I'm worried it'd be a target for break-ins. There have already been attempted break-ins in the car park before.


Does anybody have any methods for keeping their cars safe in situations like this?


It's a half-covered floor-level car park like you'd find in an apartment building, and there's no CCTV, if that helps at all.

Heyyyyy, just found out about aftermarket immobilizers, after reading through a whole bunch of articles that said shit like, "Lock your doors, don't leave your keys in your car, don't lend your keys to car thieves, etc".


I think that might be the way to go?

it's an old car you can probably just unplug the distributor cap or rig a disconnect on the ignition wires witha switch by your feet. easy shit for cheap.

Put this sign in the window of your car. You're welcome.

You could get a clutch pedal lock rig made for you but I really doubt anyone will feel like stealing a Carry van (nothing wrong with them, I fucking love micro vans. They're just not the first thing that comes to mind when I think of "stealables").
