You can always grab some resistors and a 555 timer chip and an LED and
make your own like I did back in high school.  Hook it to the ignition
switch and voila!  Instant alarm!  I'd go with one of them fancy blue LEDs
now, though :).

                               ABORTED effort:
                               Close all that you have.
                               You ask way too much.
