Stolen MGB

I recently had my BRG 1969 MGB Roadster stolen in the afternoon from out a hotel in Folkestone. What advice would give to classic car owners about electronic or other security measures in older cars with poor electrics? Do you have any views on where it might have gone?

My standard advice is to fit a Disklok (from Halfords). Big, clunky and inconvenient, but exceptionally so for a thief, and beautifully made. I'd guess that your car can be so easily identified that it will have been broken up for parts, or had its identity changed with a rusted or damaged example of the same model. So check Autotrader, etc., and classic car auction lists for any similar age MGB roadsters coming up for sale.
