Re: Valve Stem Covers (slight rant)

Not so much that I didn't have them anymore (as in my possession) but because someone actually decided to steal them. For God's sake they were $2 at AutoBarn. It also annoys me that they are probably on some crapped out Honda or Nissan. Ahugh! To make things better as I started to wax it started to rain and stopped raining as I stopped and finished up. At least it gives me a reason to wash and wax my car again this week
So anyone ever had this happen to them, the valve covers or other things being stolen off? I'm assuming that the waxing in the rain has occurred to many already and I just thought that was a nice kick.
I have had two sets of valve caps stolen, both sets were the little autozone $4.99 chrome ones...its really irritating too...its not really about the money, just the fact that someone would steal something so piddly seems ridiculous...
I also had someone steal 2 of my center caps off my ford focus that i used to have...that one pissed me off too...but not as much as the valve covers...the center caps were like $20 a piece from ford...ford is robbing you for them anyway lol
