I like that idea of welding a chain to the catalytic converter & frame. I have been worried about losing it to the platinum, palladium and rhodium thieves as I've read about it happening here in Denver. Guess I'll have to have a chat with my mechanic...

Gun racks and NRA stickers lets them know there might be a gun to steal also.

Or, an empty gun rack would make one think “I wonder where the gun is, and the owner for that matter?” :-D

BTW: This was totally supposed to be a joke and not taken seriously. No, I don’t have a gun rack nor am a member of the NRA.

Yeah, I know. I’ve fantasized about having a pet rattlesnake guarding my vehicle. :-"

My reply was meant to be quite serious...as can be seen by the inclusion of the Wayne's World clip :wink:

Wayne's World. What about spare tire theft? Not funny when it (or something worse) happens to you.
Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatever state I am, therewith to be content - Paul the Apostle.
Good day.
