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

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.

Don't buy it. The AWD system in that car would have corrected the muddy patch scenario.
