In their lead article today, Classic Car Weekly reports "police are losing the battle against classic car thieves", adding a retired senior police officer says classic car owners may be forced to engage private firms to track down stolen classics because of ongoing cutbacks in police forces. So private firms could soon be involved in finding stolen classic cars for their owners. Cars are being stolen - an E-Type Jaguar in Hampstead in north London has still not been recovered. Fitting a tracker could become necessary for insurance cover.
If a classic car has a concealed tracker fitted, the owner on discovering the car has been stolen can see where it is as the tracker sends a link with its location and road speed. All you do is click the link on a smart phone (or use the link on an iPad) and a map shows the location of the stolen car.
