One of the most well-known cars in the US is back on the road after its catalytic converter was stolen, a crime that has become more common in recent years. The hardware was stolen from the 27-foot-long, bright yellow and red hotdog on wheels, the Wienermobile, while it was parked in Las Vegas before it went to the Super Bowl.

Oscar Mayer, a well-known hot dog company based in Wisconsin, uses a fleet of six cars called the mobile to promote its products. “Hotdoggers” who claim the job for a one-year assignment drive the mobile across the country. The morning after the converter was stolen, the Wienermobile was towed to a nearby auto repair shop, where mechanics put in a temporary converter so that the said ‘s crew could drive it.

The company has also done a lot of good things for the community. It has always been a friend of the University, and it has always helped charities. It allowed research and teaching to happen inside its walls. (Photo:


“No way, that’s not a hotdog truck,” Joseph Rodriguez, the parts manager at the auto shop where the said mobile truck was fixed, told Las Vegas’s CBS affiliate, Eight News Now. “Think of your bay as a big hotdog in the middle of it.”

This isn’t the first time the Wienermobile has gotten a lot of attention across the country. In late January 2020, a sheriff’s deputy in Waukesha, Wisconsin, stopped the moving shrine to processed meat for not following traffic laws.

Catalytic converters are parts of a car’s exhaust system that change dangerous gases into safer ones. The US Department of Justice says that their cores are made of valuable metals like palladium and platinum, and they can be sold on the black market for more than $1,000.

Last year, federal police arrested 21 people across the country for being part of a ring that stole catalytic converters and sold the metals from them to make more than $54 million.
