Not Even Oscar Mayer’s Wienermobile Is Safe From Catalytic Converter Theft

We’ve been warning you for years that catalytic converter theft is on the rise. Containing plenty of valuable precious metals, catalytic converters are worth quite a bit on the black market and it appears that (the illicit) business of borrowing them from parked cars is booming. It’s gotten to the point that thieves are boldly using brightly colored exotic cars like the Lamborghini Urus SUV as getaway vehicles. If you thought things couldn’t get any more doggone audacious than that, well, we have a weiner for you.

According to a report from local news station Fox 5, the newest victim of catalytic converter theft is the iconic Oscar Mayer Wienermobile. We wish it wasn’t true, but it is. Thieves have struck at the very heart of America by violating the very symbol of one of our greatest pastimes of eating tubes of processed meat. In a subplot straight out of an Ocean’s movie, the Wienermobile had its catalytic converter stolen during a visit to Las Vegas and ended up being temporarily stuck. Realizing that not much could be done with a broken wiener, Oscar Mayer team waited until a local Penske Truck shop managed to patch the hole in the wiener’s exhaust tubing until a new catalytic converter could be sourced.

There are very few things on the planet Earth more conspicuous than a 27-foot-long vehicle shaped like a hot dog, so the thieves still going after it in broad daylight just shows how brazen they’ve become. Look, we think the main takeaway is that in today’s catalytic converter underworld, not even giant wieners are safe. If you ever needed a wake-up call to take precautions to protect your vehicle, let it be this. Jokes aside, having to replace a catalytic converter is not only a pain but it can be very expensive depending on the vehicle. There is no device that will protect your vehicle 100 percent, but there are steps you can take to prevent catalytic converter theft. We can only hope that Oscar Mayer can find and slip on some protection for its wiener before it is violated again.
