That scammer attorney in Ft Lauderdale (Scott Rothstein) had two of them that the FBI confiscated this week......

I bet it is an insurance job.....can't fix a car with a salt water dip!

Ouch!
There was one of these at the Texas Motor Speedway condos during the Dickies 500 last weekend. My assistant @ TMS had to pose with it; she loves hot cars.
