Don’t forget to chain up your Beetle for the holidays

Who needs a car alarm or LoJack when a heavy-duty chain and nearby telephone pole will do? The owner of this Volkswagen Beetle parked Thursday on Colorado Boulevard in Eagle Rock was making sure the classic car  was going no where.


  1. I seem to recall reading that vintage bugs are definitely targets of auto thieves here in L.A. Wasn’t there a story this year about a woman who lost her dream V Dub during such a theft, and recovered it fully stripped down?

    Lojack is not going to help you if the thieves are going to immediately part out your car, which can be done quickly by an experienced choppers. So this idea is not bizarre at all.

  2. That’s been their for months! It’s a storage unit – filled with all sorts of junk.
