Nope. Top three precious metals used in catalytic converters.

It is also a precious metal - I may have misspelled it.

from wiki:
Quote:
Over half of the supply of palladium and its sister metal platinum goes into catalytic converters, which convert up to 90% of harmful gases from auto exhaust

if there's a big enough group of people in one area with converters, ill make the trip to come buy them. myself and my best friend own a business called Cedar Enterprises, and buy catalytic converters is part of what we do. radiators are a good thing to make some money off of too, and batteries we're giving $3.00 apiece for.
