#1: I Always Wanted to Say That
I always wanted to say to someone, “follow that car!” This has to be the most epic car chase ever. Not because it was high-speed or dramatic, but because it sounds too bizarre to be true. Back when she was in college, this lady’s Ford Pinto got stolen. She called her friend to give her a ride to the police station to file a report. On the way there, something extraordinary happened. Her friend and she pull up to a red light, and someone pulls up next to them- driving her bright green Ford Pinto!
They immediately knew it was her stolen car because of its unique color, so they followed the driver for a few blocks. The thief finally pulled up to a liquor store and got out. The best part? He left the stolen car running! This lady runs out of her friend’s car, hops in the driver’s seat of her beloved Pinto, and quickly drives off. It was a ballsy move, but thankfully no one thought SHE was the one stealing the car!
