    A car mechanic gets busted for a 148mph street race driving a customer's Corvette.

    From AutoBlog.com

    Over the weekend, as GM Authority reported, a 2021 Chevrolet Corvette owner in the San Francisco Bay
    area took his car to a regional dealer for an engine issue. He'd waited 11 months for his car to be delivered,
    and now the engine was making a ticking noise and suffered from hesitation during acceleration. The Drive
    spoke to the owner
    , who said the dealer got the car back to him the following day, fixed the problem was
    a loose spark plug.

    When the owner, who goes by "tastysauce" on YouTube, checked out video from his car's Performance Data
    Recorder (PDR), he saw just how thorough the service department tested the fix: The tech took his car out
    for a lengthy test drive, doing more than 100 mph on his own, then racing a Dodge Charger on the highway
    and getting up to a PDR-indicated 147.6 miles per hour.

    I posted this because it reminded me of the old days when taking
    a customers motorcycle out for a lunch run was normal practice at
    dealerships.

    Two customers who brought their bikes in for a tune & service found
    out about their motorcycles were involved in a high speed pursuit, and
    many other infractions, from the police that were investigating the
    chase a day or so later.
