Default Why Cat converters are so much $$$$

Catalytic converters contain expensive precious metals like platinum - which is worth up to $1,200 an ounce; palladium, which can fetch $320 an ounce and rhodium, the biggest prize of all. It goes for up to $6,000 an ounce on the market.
keep yours under your car!!!!

Yea they're definately worth money.
When the scrap metal guy comes to my work he pays us good money for our cats.
