I used to have a tricked out Chevy Vega (400 small block, TH 400 tranny, beefier rear diff)Some of the local riff-raff paid more than a passing interest in the car.
To discourage this, I made a FAKE bomb out of pieces of broom handle wrapped in brown paper from some plain (no logo) paper bags. I had wire running into each of the "Sticks" and finished it off as authentic as I could. It even had a small "power" light that turned on with the ignition.
It was mounted to the firewall in front of the driver.
I let it be known that it was there and, even, showed it to some of the kids. Word got around about the "car bomb" and it was never bothered.
It helps to have some time in the military to add credibility to the fašade.
I must"ve done a good job as the cops paid a little attention to the car too. They got a chuckle out of it when I showed them it wasn"t real.
