Another thing to worry about, and another reason to want a place in the boonies. If either of my crappy cars had the converter stolen, I guess I'd maybe scrap the car? It's kind of late in the game to make new regulations for car makers, like making them harder to get to, but the penalties for theft could be dramatically increased, i guess? And maybe regulate the sale of used converters, but trying to police the scrap industry? LOL. I saw a whole school bus once in the news, stolen then ground up for scrap metal.
