  1. Thought I’d outsmart Obama sons, had bolts welded. Uh, riiiiiiiiight. Without setting off alarm they just sawed off exhaust pipes fore and aft, 20 feet from bedroom window, didn’t hear a thing. Fricking attach bolt purchases logged by Police, cat. converters, not so much!

  2. Ahh city living.

    On the north side no less. It was at the point when Obama’s sons started crossing I55 that I decided it was best to stop encouraging my ultra leftest sister and her creepy husband to head for safer ground.

    Let them enjoy a non stop run of Lois Lightfoots, hell they voted for it.

  3. There are 4 on some Cadillac Escalades.
    They can fetch 50 a piece at scrap yard
    if they are not worn out.24 volt dewalt
    saw-all with new Lennox lazer blades….

  4. Heard of a guy that went the junk yard and found his converter. He matched the saw cut to his exhaust pipe and had charges pressed against the thieves.
