Even an American institution is not safe from catalytic converter theft.
The Wienermobiles, a fleet of six cars shaped like hot dogs meant to promote Oscar Mayer and a bona fide American treasure, are built from some combination of an Isuzu truck chassis and components from a surprising collection of great cars. They are largely trucks underneath, which means they have catalytic converters. That means even the Wienermobile is not safe from the ongoing rash of catalytic converter thefts.
One Wienermobile was in Las Vegas earlier this week when its catalytic converter was reportedly cut out from underneath it.
