Funny TC Story

So today I went to the local chain to find a prefab hose, and when I pull in (In my wife's Camry) I saw an 88 bird I hadn't seen before, blue, sunroof. One of 2 88's I've seen since I got mine. Lowered nicely and in good shape. On the way in the door I strike up a conversation with the guy - and his *old lady* about how nice his car is, and how I have a red one and such (trying to thow a NATO plug) and all I get back is sarcasm and "mine's better than yours" typical auto shop lingo.
So I says good day and go about asking about my part, and I hear the end of his conversation, where the guy said "spcial order". Hey! I thought, I knew where he might find a part! <wink>
I ask him what he's looking for cause I might know where to find it and he snaps back something to the effect of how it's none of my business and for a Subaru so thanks for butting in.
Well!
After another stop that didn't have the hose either (figures) I'm driving home and what do I see.!?
That blue 88 bird pulled over in a parking lot by 2 cruisers, doors and trunk wide open, he and his *old lady* in the back seat of the cruiser.

Wait, if it's something major and the car gets impounded, it could be destroyed(drug charges) or sold to an owner who doesn't care.
Pray for the well being of the TC

Funny, that's the first thing I thought of!
I've been wondering how to get into the police auctions, maybe I'll have to find out now....
