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.

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