The only problem with this plan is... How many of them "World'* Wildest Police Chases" type shows have you seen where a fairly innocent person freaks out and runs? While I agree with the sentiment, there is the potential for disaster.

Too bad this ain't 30-40 yers ago. Then the answer would be easy. Beat 'em til they can't sit. Can't sit, can't drive..... That'* what my folks would have done, had I been that stupid. I only got beat fpor minor infractions...

I am 24 (25 in Sept) and my have the times changed. Back when I was grownig up if I jacke a car, not being able to sit for a week would be the least of my worries. It is sad in my opinion that she has to go thru this trouble to protect her Bonnie.

my friend has a kill switch installed in his 94 acclaim. theres a push switch installed under the carpet to the left of the brake. you press it once to kill the starter, press it again to engage it again.

I'm 23. I can tell you from experience, if an 18 year old wants to take a car that his parents are trying to prevent him from taking, he WILL make that car start. This is not an issue of modifying the Bonneville. This is an issue of a parent needing to either:

a) Call the cops and report it stolen. Tell dispatch that you know where they will be returning to and how they're related to the owner of the vehicle. Have the cops hidden and waiting at home so when they pull back home, there is no chase. A night in the slammer WILL discourage them from doing it again.
b) Keep the keys with her, at all times! DUH.

Just for personall use, I like the thought of a second switch by the brake. I don't like the thought of trying to get it hooked up.

I'm 30 now, and I can remember back in the day when my mom use to take me out front of the house and whip me with her 2" wide leather belt. In PUBLIC. Boy, if that didn't learn me, than nothing did. She only did that about 3 or 4 times.

Here in my home area, they take juvies over to the prison and give them a grand tour. It'* called the "Scared Straight Program" I been through it a couple of times.

Let the punks take her car again, call the cops and report it stolen. Have em sit in the clinker for a night. That might work.
