lock doors at car shows

At Flemington on Sunday some low life tried to pinch my horn button.
Is a Grant wheel with a chev badge. But as the button is removed the horn sounds
Luckily the button was dropped. I was not far away and heard the the horn and put it back together

I left the window open, I guess in the future we should set up a roster so someone is around the cars at all times. Never had a problem in the past

Thats just bullsh*t, these scumbags need a serious hiding!

I always leave my windows open, this has got me thinking now though.

As low an act as that was let's not allow the few scumbags of the world ruin the enjoyment of carshows.

We all like to have a good view of a nice interior and it would be a shame to let one event mess that up for us.

Mate i was told about this when we got home, my mate Kevin and my wife were close to your car when the alarm went off, they said there was nobody at your car at the time just a few people a bit behind it, is it possible the spring loaded button popped off, i like the others would want a head to roll if it was true

Hopefully this is the case.

It was probably a Commodore owner that wanted the badge for the boot or grille of his car.

I remember the horn going off for a few minutes. Would that of been it? Did you find the button in the car or outside the car?
