Mounties may have some cheap GTR's for sale ..

Post by jason » 01 Sep 2011 14:36

Seems like the Mounties seized $2million in fancy cars yesterday for racing on the 99 in Delta, a Ferrari 599, 3 Gallardo's, 3 GTR's and some crummier stuff ...

Good chance for a cheap upgrade Keith :twisted: !

Cripes.....and we drive 500 miles out of town to go maybe 30 KMH over.......


Hell, lets just blast HWY 99...I can handle a $196.00 fine...


How insane is that? Lets just see what really happens with these clowns...One of them already has a street racing issue....

I know we have not been saints at times...but at 3:30 in rush hour, blocking traffic...I don't think so.....

this link gives more pictures, the "bust" is just up the street from my house.

One really has to wonder how any 16-22 year old could possibly be turned loose in a car like this... until the last photo was shown. I won't play a discrimination card, but labeling this group as "New Canadians" might be a start! You got your attention, now I hope you get nailed to the wall. However, the fine means nothing to a group like this – neither would loosing the cars for that matter. I can hear them non, laughing on the street corner; “Daddy’s lawyer will work it all out, I don’t need to worry”. Sad thing – that’s exactly what will happen. Suddenly these kids will all come from “broken homes” or “need extra community encouragement”. So how about this; a week of labour, like clearing some blackberries out of some Richmond ditches, or mopping up the puke off of east Van streets on Sunday mornings between 4am and noon for 6 weeks –THAT would be a suitable punishment for this high end group. Man, I’d even organize it if necessary :D
So then you wonder what the heck the parents are thinking? What not buy them safer toys such as grenades and semi automatic weapons...wait the GTR is semi-automatic...
If you have the money or not, what the heck were those parents thinking? Maybe there are too many fighting for the inheritance anyway – they needed to thin the herd. Not sure, but I really don't care. I just know that even if I had that kind of money to throw around, I wouldn’t by buying my kids this type of toy. I love my kids to much too even think of turning them loose in such machinery.

My rant...

I see these spoiled rich kids drive by me in Richmond all the time and shake my head when I see a 200 k car with the little green "N" on the back.

It's odd seeing stuff like that, where I grew up in East Van I had a "newish car" when I was 16, a '72 510 2 door that was 5 years old and starting to rust in the fenders already that I paid for .... These kids, their parents have more money than brains and the kids are tempting Darwin ...

I think they should videotape the cars being crushed and send the video to the parents. It's likely the parents are still in HK or elsewhere and just send the kids money. I agree with the article, suspend the license completely and let them take the bus or catch a ride with a friend who doesn't drive like a jackass.

In the end, it's the cars that suffer the most.... sniff, sniff.... :lol:

From that last link, "One of the drivers lost control and was arrested."

Did he lose control of his car, or his temper?

"His buddy was found hiding at a nearby school." <-- after he took off and hid, they were no longer buddies :P

As much as I am a vocal opponent to civil forfeiture (even though in an email to me from Solicitor General Shirley Bond, she claimed that seizure in accordance with the MVA isn't); I've got my BC Auction account set up and a budget of $45000 for a shiny GT-R.

If not, there are always fire trucks which seem to go for 5 to 10k which would make for a... unique daily driver.

looks like the 13 cars the Cops took off of the Richmond racers are going back to the racers. The Cops had no evidence or witnesses so there is no case against the drivers. I wonder what will happen with the two cars they had already sold?? We the taxpayers are going to be buying a couple new sportcars for those punks....
