I've always been curious as to why the lock was on the passenger side and not the driver? Thinking possibly because back then most people parallel parked on the street and would allow you to exit to the curb and lock the vehicle there? spitballing here. I'll leave mine as it is. I honestly doubt anyone could even get it to start, i mean, who thinks about a foot stomp starter pedal?? Mine won't be a DD, but will get driven around town time to time. I figure I'll take that extra couple of minutes, scoot across the seat, and lock it up tight, just in case.
