                  Saw that car at the Peterson. Really amazing to see it up close after so many years of hearing stories behind it and the money that brought it racing.

                      So you spend 50k on a “prank/theft” that ends up damaging the car for what?? I think all you guys really accomplished was scratching a very valuable automobile just to show off how much money you can waste. 🤦‍♂️ Next time why don’t you “prank” some homeless people or something like that.

                                              Is it just me or is the ticket clinic add at the end kind of look like the beginning to an “adult film”?

                                                  Oh, I hold the record in pranking a prankster billionaire thrice, so far. Still hope he's going to get me back, this Halloween and Christmas. Blowing money on pranks is easy for him - so I just had to wait to get him back, ice cold. Got him again, before he got his bearings. Then thrice.

                                                    Once it got to “scraping noises” and all the track hands having to run around for plywood, this turned from ‘awesome prank’ to ‘what an asshole’
                                                    There were probably no less than 60-80 working class guys that had their day fucked up and Bruce Meyers didn’t even sweat. I hope someone got punched in the stomach for this!

                                                      I thought the prank was going to be that they had made a replica and swapped the car out to have the fake car “impounded” only to have the real car drive up after they left with the fake one on the flat bed. Still a solid prank though.

This sounds like civil asset forfeiture, in which case they will sell off their car to fund the department or they will keep it in their fleet for undercover investigations.
