Looks like the crap the catalytic converters catch can become jewelery, and thieves are cutting the whole thing off to get them.

thats it, we all need to get hydrolics or air bags and lower the car to the ground where ever we go as a preventative measure

but seriously, I never heard of that, sounded ridiculous to me. What is the world coming to

Well, on the scale of worth, the Imports and newer trucks are worth more, then the american cars, and then older cars. Most of the older ones aren't worth too much cause they didn't use as much platinum in them.
