Heck Ted, just get the old vibrator style coil from your model T Ford and
hook it up so that the hapless individual tampering with your car completes
the circuit! It is easy to do but use a separate battery so you do not run
the car's one down. I have used it to stop dogs from peeing on my car
wheels......they only try it once.
