Engline Light Code P0420

coming home yesterday i noticed the engine light was on. took it to autozone this morning they plugged in and got the code p0420 ive have 3 cars in the past 6 months thats gotten this code and so i knew right away what its for dealers closed today so has to wait untill tomorrow. This should be something they can fix rather easily i would guess. Anyone else have this happen?

I have no mods at all the only thing is i was out in the rain and it got alittle slippery and the tires spun and all for a few seconds but not at high rpms it was on the way home after that but i wouldnt think that would give me any kind of issues

I just did a P0420 code on a Express Van last week and I ended up putting Converters on it. I'm not the normal drivablity guy but one of ours was on vacation last week so I ended up with it. I know they replace LOTS of converters on vehicles. None have been Camaros yet .
