Valve Stem Covers (slight rant)

So anyone buy aftermarket valve stem covers? I noticed my car didn't have any so awhile ago I bought some new ones. They were silver caps, I figured a step up from black plastic. I washed my car the other day and as I got down to wash my tires I noticed they were missing, on all four wheels! I got pissed. 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 [/rant part]

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

Re: Valve Stem Covers (slight rant)

some people just like to do something to nice cars.... or because they dont have something nice like that etc etc...

I talked to someone that said while he was at the movies someone ripped off his hood scoop on his 99-04 stang and just threw it out in the middle of the parking lot.
