    Angry Someone stole my catalytic converter

    So yeah.....working from home today because i'm sick as shit. Heard some random ass noise outside but didn't think anything of it. Sounded like sawing. So anyways this goes on for about 5 minutes, finally I look out the window and wtf do i see.....some jackass underneath my 1995 Tacoma - Tacoma is parked outside across the street from my house. Anyway so i run outside just to catch buddy hoping into a 2011 body style Black GMC Sierra with a red Z71 decal on the side. Couldn't get plates or a good description of the offender.

    Walked around my truck and saw footprints, but not damage to the tires or body, though buddy was trying to jack the tires. Look underneath....and this is what i find:









    Whoever it was stole a 20 year old catalytic converter of a 95 Tacoma....like seriously....wtf. Just pisses me cuz of the inconvenience more than anything else.

    Anyway....just ranting.

    /end rant

    Yeah well I wonder how they get the soft flowing caramel inside the Caramilk bar but you don't see me making a god damn thread about it. Slap your wife Baygirl, straighten him out.

    and I did not have the only say in the matter (most people just want it done ASAP and don't care about quality).

    If anything we made a better decision because we had a consensus and were all on the same page.

    What part of town was this...

    My wife texted me today to say that the neighbors garage had been broken into.

    A few small things stolen.

    She didn't think anything was missing from ours but I will know for sure when I get home.

    This was in Deer Ridge.

    When I worked at Nissan, someone broke into the storage compound where all the new Nissan Titan's are. This was back in 2010. 30 Cats were stolen. They sounded amazing though when running but Sales Dept was not impressed having to pay for 30 cats.

    Parts Dept we had a good month though

    As for how much you can get....lowest would be $20/each, Titan ones maybe $50-80?

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    1st time in a decade I was approached by randoms at gas station about selling stuff off the SUV. I didn't take a look but thru the glass they don't look like BNIB, so most likely it's loot from B&E.

    I wrote down the plate (BC, so may be stolen too) and gave it to the cops.

    Economy sucks and everyone go back to crimes. Lock up your shit.

    This has been going on in the US for year. I remember reading about Cats being stolen about 10 years ago.

    Maybe they are making rings? They are looking for the platinum, palladium, rhodium, and gold inside.

    yeah, shitty deal but ive heard of this a lot, they dont want the cat, just the scrap value, $20-$50, goes a long way in buying a box of beer for the evening. just straight pipe it, then you'll be straight ricky bobby redneck

    Pretty f'd up situation.

    This weekend someone stole my front lip off my Jetta (4-motion front lip) as my car was parked on my parents driveway this weekend.



    What is this world coming to.
