You can do a hidden fuel pump cutoff switch.

I always have a hard time deciding which handgun to carry:
Concealed handgun permit with paging car alarm FTW!

ok guys, let me say it again. this is when im parked somewhere like school. just something to prevent them from stealing it. i already have a club, is there anything else i can do to further secure my car down?

Argh, gotta spoon feed everyone because they can't think for themselves: http://causeforalarm.thecarthing.com/version6/fuel_kill/index.html
Of course that link provides lots of information about Honda/Acura. If you can't figure out how to apply to it to your vehicle from there, well, then I can't help you. Also, a club is fairly useless if a thief has a steering wheel puller and another steering wheel! ;)

boot your car when you get out.

Simplest thing is once the car is off, pop the hood and pull out the ignition coil wire and take it with you. Don't tell anyone that's how you secure your car either, nobody is going to randomly have an ignition coil wire with them, but if people know that's how to steal your car they'll get one cheap.

This is just a reminder to members that the next club car night is this coming Tuesday, 16th December, a week earlier than usual.

Most cars these days have coil packs or COP, so you would have to remove 4 or more coil wires or take out the coil-on-plugs, kind of a PITA..I used to simply remove my fuel pump relay when leaving the car in an area I was uncomfortable with, and I have alarms on all my cars..Won't stop them from putting it on a flatbed, but I don't really see that happening at school..
