Yeah, so many people have them now, that they are sick of them and no
longer pay attention to them anymore so what's the point?
I had a friend who had like and early 80s chevy pickup and had a super
custom paint job on it. He had an alarm also.
Taken right out of a public area at a store's parking lot.
Smash window. Open door. Open hood. Cut wire to annoying blaring that nobody
is paying attention to.
Never heard of that brand in the years I was selling/installing them.
Scytek is a very good, very reliable, very flexible brand. They offer
everything from your basic alarm, to a paging alarm to an alarm that
has a camera that takes a picture of the drivers "cockpit" when the
alarm is triggered.
I was in Texas. Some moron had parked his TransAm on the boat landing ramp
and went fishing. They towed it. All the way until it went it out of sight
from the hook of the towtruck it was howling, "Warning! Stand Back!
Protected by Viper!"
I don't pay attention to car alarms, and with today's kids being armed I
sure ain't gonna get shot over someone else's stereo.
As John Lennon once said, "Whatever gets you through the night, it's
I had a Clifford alarm installed on my 98 Dodge, because it helps me sleep
at night. You walk buy the window, and it goes, 'Woop, woop, woop' and the
same thing if the truck is jiggled (as when they try to cut off your
converter). And I shut if off during the day (you can't see the flashing LED
lights, which I installed on top of my dashboard.). The alarm rarely goes
off, as the warning does the trick.
While it's true that you can't stop a professional thief that knows his
business, you can run off a meth junkie that hasn't had a fix in a while.
