The cats have a little bit of copper in them.

Copper = $$$$

I thought the diesel Cat's had Platinum in them. That is what makes them a hot item to steal.

That is why most scrap yard's won't take them. Atleast around here.

that is a good question. You might get away with bringing one in. More then that they may call the police.

I have heard more then once where a bunch has been stolen off of car lots. So scrap yard might not even take them anymore. Best way to find out is to call around.

I was told that they can't sell emissons stuff. Not that it would stop them. But that is what I was told. Maybe that is just here.
