Question: What would you would do to someone who tried to steal your new R/T or SRT Challenger? ....
Probably more worthwhile stealing than a Hyundai Getz which is what I hired to do the shot as I don't have a car. I took out extra insurance "in case".
My son, Michael was a bit apprehensive but is quite safe.

Check out the video for a laugh as well. It is on the site or on YouTube.

In reading the current issue of Car and Driver, I found an interesting ad for a electronic steering wheel lock selling for $69.95.

Click on their website and watch the video. Let me know what you think of it. I may get one for my Challenger.

Starting in 2009, GM will offer enhanced OnStar service in 20 of its models. If a car equipped with the new system is stolen, besides telling the police its whereabouts, it will actually stop the car dead in its tracks. According to the report, if the police see the car in motion and determine that it can be stopped safely, they can tell the OnStar operators to send a signal via a cell phone to slow it to a halt. Although, the horepower will be cut, the steering and brakes will still work. In addition, before all of this happens, the car's emergency flashers will go on and the car will give the thief a verbal warning before it stops moving.

The best thing about this technology is that GM is willing to sell it to other automakers in an effort to cut dangerous police chases.

It would be great if Chrysler would buy this to protect our Challengers! :D

So what is interesting is the manuals don't have a hood switch so anyone can pop open the hood and the factory alarm will not activate. I have plans to install a hood switch, shock sensor and a tilt sensor. There is a provision in the BCM for the hood switch but the shock and tilt sensor will be tied into the trunk trigger.

I believe that on automatics the hood switch is for the remote start only and doesn't have anything to do with the alarm anyway.
