Re: The Best Way To Secure...

most of the time cars will run with a vaccuum hose for a coil wire. give it a try for yourself.

chain or cable it to a pole, or sleep in it. the cell phone tracker would also be a good idea.

Re: NJ DMV versus AACA Judges

if they were civil "servants" they would be doing more to help than hinder.

civil overlord is more a correct term, if you dont see this then you are firmly parked on the other side of the counter.
