Sandflea427SS Oh Jeez...I just thought of something... All of us good guys have no guilty conscience~so we have no problems sleeping at night. When the crooks use the cordless sawzall we don't wake up because we're sleeping like babies....
Maybe we should do some sort of evil so we don't sleep so sound...

BLAZERMAN They have been stealing them right and left here. We caught a couple doing it, they are using a pipe cutter which is like a chain with teeth and no nose from it. Works very fast. One car dealer has them removed from over 20 cars one night.

glayman They just had a news story about around here. It seems that the new catalytic converters have some expensive metals in them now (platinum, titanium) and that scrap yards are pay $100.00 + for them. they showed it on TV and it took a thief about 30 seconds to get it off the vehicles. Man what will they think of next

Chevrolet4x4s Its happening around here too some were stolen at votech and quite a few at a local junkyard and there was an attempt to steal some at a local carlot.

jray Getting to be a big deal around here.....average price @ recyclers 100$-125$ with cats off some makes going up lots more.

docvette Doc here,


Seems to me like someone was asleep at the switch...IF a slimebucket could RUN a sawzall long enough to cut a cat out and not be heard...maybe he had a silencer??

I think IF I found someone under any of my vehicles with a sawzall, I'd be obliged to do some elective "Crook" surgery with his own tool..

Henry Highrise First I have ever heard of that. It would be easy done with a cordless sawsall or recipicating saw.
02-12-2007 06:08 PM
Gokussj5okazu Wow that's the first time I've ever heard of that happening, but then again that's the first thing everyone around here takes off and sells. I can see why though, a good cat is worth a good bit cause' of the metal in them.
