About two months ago, we brought you news of the then-new LoJack For Classics stolen vehicle recovery system (currently available in select counties in 28 states; the complete list can be found here) that had been designed specifically for the collector car market. On December 5, the system received its first test in Vallejo, California. According to the report we received, the theft occurred at approximately 5:30 p.m. when suspects broke into the victim’s garage by removing “the garage door padlocks, defeated the car’s steering wheel lock and drove off.” The car, a 1971 Chevy Chevelle valued at roughly $20,000, was equipped with the LoJack for Classics system, which was promptly activated. Within an hour, officers from the Concord Police Department – with the assistance from the CHP Aviation Unit – located the Chevelle parked in a residential driveway in Concord; the incident is still under investigation. As for the Chevelle, it was recovered without damage.
