Let's market a suspension that drops the car to the ground when you park it so thieves cannot get under it.

How about when they get under it.

This is real common like stealing the copper off your HVAC system

They have it. it's called an air bag system. It lays the car on it's chassis.

Pretty crappy people are stealing catalytic converters. My car doesn't have one but it was removed before I got it, although I'm sure that couldn't/wouldn't pass as an excuse not to have one.

It might just be my convoluted way of thinking but it seems to me that the gay marriage law in CA might cause lesbian couples to go to sperm banks when they want children. My research tells me that a bank might pay as much as $200.00 a week, for a 6 mo period, to donors. People will steal anything they can make money on. We need shorts with burglar alarms.
