What security device do you have for your vehicle?

I have a 1958 MG Magnette. First, the windows/doors have substantial frames that cannot allow a coat hanger or other such "thief tool" to pass, and there are no lock knobs to push or pull anyway. Second, there is only one door that unlocks from the outside and the mechanism is designed in such a way that it cannot be "jimmied". Third, the combination of ignition lock switch in the dash (not on the column...) and a push to start button (marked "S") and a manual choke manages to stymie anyone under the age of 50... Old school technology to be sure!
