Default I, Ladies and Gentlemen, am a genius.

How so? you ask.
Ha! i have implemented the greatest idea ever concieved, and i'll let you in on the sneaky parts. i went to get a new key for the 93, noticed it had this nice little square in it. since i'm devious and had a good bit of spare time today...
I first located the ignition circuit under the hood.
I cut it and spliced in 10 guage wire, long enough to reach the underside of the floorboard of the car.
I then mounted a Low porfile, heavy duty, momentary on switch.
i hooked that all up.
what that does is make it to where i have to have my foot sitting in the right place on the floorboard for the car to start.
then, i took my brandspankin new $34.47 key, and cut out the inner part of the GM square, in it'* place i put a peice of shiny black plastic.
Now comes the deviant part. i told my friends i was getting a new key, from Germany, that would only start the car if it read my thumb on the fingerprint scanner (shiny plastic). I can't "wait" until my key finally gets here from "Germany"...

I've often thought about doing this to a car as an anti-theft device. Never had the energy to actually do it, though.

The wet feet thing might mater if it weren't for the plastic sheeting...

anti-theft? purely. but the story entices my buddies not to steal my keys when i'm three sheets to the wind. i told them it records thumbprints

i am not insane.

That is a damn neat idea. I'd like to see how it was all done.
