  I don't know about anyone else, but there is no way I could feel comfortable in a room knowing my car was outside with some low-life looking to steal a car especially at some event. My 'Comfort Suite' would be me in my front seat with an M-1911 at my side to ward off any possible thieves.

The area around the fairgrounds is kind of rough I would not have stayed that close. My sister might know somebody that knows them I will check on a VIN

Taken from 2015 Hagerty article:
"Classic car theft is rare. Less than 1/10 of 1 percent of classic cars are stolen every year. Thefts are most likely in large cities or in these states: California, Florida, New York, Texas and Michigan. Corvettes, Impalas, Mustangs, Chevelles and Camaros are the five cars most likely to be stolen. Essentially, the risk of theft is higher in popular areas and with more popular cars."

We have had police security at the meets and tours I've hosted. Sounds like this one was stolen near but not at the show. It is hard to protect them when traveling.

Anybody ever tried Lojack for Classics?

Yes, it sounds like it was at a motel.

Bad deal. I hope they find it.

Hopefully Ohio takes property crimes seriously. I can tell you in my blue state property crimes are not thought of seriously, almost as if people forgot about the victims. Don't want to get into politics but I keep hearing the sentiment "but its only a property crime".

Hope the car is found and the thief is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
