    9 out of 10 thefts I would say it is someone who knows you.

    That sucks. Thieves should be shot. Sounds like an inside job. Hang in there!!

    Sorry to hear about your terrible ordeal. I know how it feels.
    Get a Rottweiler, or a Shepherd. Until then get a motion sensor that sets off an alert in the house. Driveway Alert is pretty good but needs new batteries every couple of years. I hope you get it figured out. They might come back, be ready next time. I had a neighbor that got hit three times in a year. I don't think they ever caught them, they must be shipping the equipment overseas.

    If this is near your home and it has wifi, you could look into some wireless motion camera's. I personally have the blink xt camera's. I have 5 going, with one base station. They require no power wires, they record for up to 1 month, they're night vision, and they store on the cloud as well as your local device. YOu can set alerts so that you can view any movement direcdtly from your phone.

    Get a dog...a German Shepherd. Train him well and care for him like family. You'll have the best theft deterrent known to man.

    Hey Chilihead,
    Anymore progress on vintage?
    Pm me. Hopefully you can get it going someday. That would be cool.
