    A couple things to look for when it won't run: scotch tape under the battery clamps to insulated them from the terminals, a rag stuffed in the intake. I helped "bug" the car for our troubleshooting team in high school. That was fun.

    I thought of those as well... I don't have access to anything like that. My best bet would be finding some furniture dollies and hoping they held up to it

    That plan would work... except for the girls (see 5:1 ratio thing, and that 1 typically isn't anything special)

    That's awesome

    Again... very unlikely to find a girl here that fits that bill. I know, kinda sucks the fun out of college right?

    Thanks for the key info though

    Thanks for that info too. I think I've got the RFID thing figured out.
    I've found that most car makers only have the radio frequency related to the fuel pump, so no RFID key, no fuel pump, but everything else still works. If we can get it somewhat taken we can easily either bring our own fuel tank and pull gas out of there or direct wire the fuel pump to the battery.

    You say the car gets stolen several times during the year... Maybe its already been stolen once or twice? If so, you're problem may have been solved already- perhaps someone has already employed the 'bust steering coulmn and start with screwdriver' technique, in which case all you have to do is bring your screwdriver and start her right up.

    You're at a mining college, do you have access to equipment? One of these would make short work of stealing that car.

    that link is for go jacks.. if you dont have far to drag it you only need two for the drive wheels as long as e brake isnt on. if it is climb through the bam margera sun roof and release. hook tow strap to something on the rear and pull the car till you can try to start it. the go jacks have 360 degree casters and are good to drive on if you need to. i have towed a car over a mile on a set once but ruined one of the casters on one go jack. if you drag the car on those be careful because it will swing side to side.

    buy a clapped out duplicate of the car. doll it up freshman style, and forklift your new car ontop of the senior's car.

    or light theirs on fire.

    Ok I've been finding out more on what we need to do with it. It cannot be destroyed because whoever ends up with it last gets to drive it in the homecoming parade. The hooters idea gives me an idea... I'm gonna have to make a trip down to the strip club and enlist some help. I'm gonna make my first attempt tonight I think as I don't have class till 1 tomorrow so I can be up all night trying to get it. They added a plywood removable top because it was raining today as well as a plywood wing on the back. You guys gotta see this thing... it's actually pretty well done. I think they chopped the exhaust off and are running an open header now too. Next time I see them driving it around I'll snap a pic.
