If there are any Prius owners out there with high mileage, I'd actually replace the catalytic converted, keep the cold converter, sell it somewhere, and then use this:

My Nephew's had his stolen 4 times in the past 2 years. Twice here in the Bay Area and twice in LA, so I forwarded him this article to brighten his day.

Heh, essentially a $150 insurance policy to protect a $1,500 asset on a car that by now would have very little residual value. My wife drove an '09 Prios that we handed down to our daughter, and we replaced it mainly because the cat was at its EOL and wasn't worth the investment to replace.

Someone tried to teach him the art of thievery but he obviously didn't learn jack.

If they can't already fence in-tact CCs, then I have to think they're going for the platinum or palladium inside, but then again, how many CCs does it take to get a nice profit out of the metal content? It's like how many comp chips and motherboards does it take to get an oz of gold.

Jack is 1/3rd of the Pep Boys. They done changed their logo and didn't mention the lads in their commercial. Whatever happened to the boyz?

Still can't decide which is more jacked. Being stuck behind a Prius? Or stuck under a Prius?
