I love frustrating thieves.

Someone broke into my civic and tried to steal the stereo (cheap $99 unit). They broke a $200 window to get to it, but they couldn't get the stereo out, because _I_ installed it. I bolted a 1/2" steel strap to the back of the stereo, and wrapped it around a large structural member. They'd have to work a socket wrench for 15 minutes with their head under the dash to get that sucker out.

Still, it would have been cheaper to just leave the car door unlocked. :P

They did make off with a change purse with about 30 cents in it. I hope it bought them some crack.
