    Yep. I'm a boring guy. :D 

    I'd play some computer games but my computer isn't good enough to run it.

    I am happy for the guy , but i can't help but feel bad for the Car club they got a bum deal and honestly did nothing wrong.

    That slight computer error cost them thousands. I suppose they can go after the guy they bought the car from.

    That's an awesome story.


    But can't they trace it back to the person who sold it to the club and find out how he got it? That's the shady part. Though there's probably a statute of limitations on auto theft....

    Yeah, this was definitely a great read, and I think I'm gonna spread it around some more in light of at least a few people I know seeming like they'll enjoy it too :)

    I'm glad the guy got his car and it was just blind luck he got his car back.

    Ouch. That car company got burned on this one.

    Still, not their fault by the sounds of it. Still sad to hear that a company (presumably just in the wrong place at the wrong time) lost money over this). Good to hear the guy got his car back, though. :)

    Well now the police can close this file due to their exceptional efforts, oh wait no he had to do it himself.

    I'm missing the point of why he had to pay anything to actually get the car out of impound, I can undrstand if he got it shipped that was his choice but that is rediculous.
