The Nearly Step
Aged 6 or 7, I lived in a cottage about a mile outside the village where I went to a tiny little village infants & juniors school (about 50 kids in total).

The road was, at the time, the main A road between South Wales and the Midlands (i.e. before they'd opened the A449 between Newport & Raglan), so it was too dangerous for me to walk on my own. My mum didn't have a car, and was a 'housewife' so she would walk me to school herself.

One day, the headmaster, a Mr Cecil Berrington, drove past in his shiny 1970s red Vauxhall Viva, and pulled in to give us a lift. As we got in, I saw one of these:

in the passenger footwell. Once we got to school, wide-eyed with terror, I told all my mates "Don't mess with Mr Berrington - he's got a cane in his car and it's made of METAL!!!!"

It was only later I found out that it was a Krooklok to stop people nicking his valuable and beloved motor.

I had one of those on my car,all it did was present a bit more of a challenge,my car was stolen and it was thrown on the back seat.
This was before immobilisers,was told by someone in the know that unless you can afford top spec alarm systems your better off leaving the car doors open to minimize damage when and if you get your car back.
