2) So it was bound to happen sooner or later. My Honda Element was violated a couple Fridays ago. Theives removed my catalydic converter along with the oxygen sensors. I knew the minute I started the car that was what had happened because of the noise. I hoped that it was something else. I prayed that it was something else.
I came home late because I stayed in the burbs for a friend's bday get-together at The Club House (suburban cougarville). I thought I was lucky that I found a parking spot so close to my home, less than 50 yards away. Unfortunately it was a spot that was between the two street lights range and thus was very dark. This made it even easier for whomever came along and decided my car was the lucky one tonight. Based on the surgical like cuts, I don't think parking anywhere else that night would have made too much difference unless I could have been right under a street light. Update: Filed a claim with Insurance Company and they quickly sent me a check which covered about half of the repair costs ($500 deductible).
