New to alarms, need info (or suggestions)

I have a 93 Caprice and I have been shoping around for alarms. I have come to the conclusion that it is best to buy the alarm online and have it installed.
Of these two alarms, which is the best bang for the buck.
Or could somone please post some alarm suggestions.
(The most I would like to pay for the alarm is $80)

Ouch, I really dont have the money right now to pay for that and installation. Thanks for the suggestion though.
Any others?
What do you think of those posted above, would they be a waste of time and money?

Excaliber alrams have been around for YEARS! The first one I installed was in a 1984 s-10 blazer.That was back in 1990 and I owned that truck for 4 years. Never had a problem with it.

They are a cheaper alarm but to be honest for the price your looking to spend thats your best bet.

Are you going to install it yourself?
