the cats are made with platinum. Platinum is going for like $1,600 an oz or so

Click: Catalytic Converter Theft
Ya, it would be time for sure.

I liked this suggestion;

"Visit a local muffler shop and have the converter secured to the vehicle’s frame with a couple of pieces of hardened steel welded to the frame."

I don't know about little trucks and cars, but there's pretty much a "no weld" warning on the frame of big trucks. Isn't it the same on our little vehicles?

Here in Florida we have no tests at all! It's great.
Can run what you want. And people will pull the converters for the platinum cause it's worth a crap ton if any is even left in it. Plus here in Florida if you try to scrap cats you have to provide a title do so. I have a fox body H pipe in my yard that I can't get rid of cause I don't have a title. And no one will buy it or even touch it.
