    Texas 2k11 Road trip horror story (Link to story inside)

    Well I was googling around trying to find some news from TX2k11, and I stumbled upon this story from the amazingly smart SVT crowd.

    Texas 2k11 Road trip horror story - SVTPerformance
    OK here we go.....
    I leave CA Tuesday night, trailer loaded with the car & a 55 of VP. I worked all day Tuesday, so when I get to El Paso TX I stop, and decide to get a little shut eye. Get my room at the Holiday Inn Express, sleep for about 5 hours wake, shower and get ready to leave.
    I pull the truck around to the front of the hotel, so I can go inside and hit the breakfast bar to grab a couple of cinnamon rolls and some fruit for the road. Since I am parked under the awning in the front of the hotel, (and it's a little cold out) I leave the truck running. I get my food, grab a coffee and head back out to......nothing. It seems while I was inside (5 mins, max) someone hopped in the truck and took off. With my fawking car attached to it.
    Oh SH**!!!
    I rush the counter, screaming, CALL 911 SOMEONE JUST STOLE MY TRUCK & TRAILER!!!!
    Amazingly the guy behind the counter was on it, picked up the phone immediately. Cops show up about 7 minutes later, get a vehicle description plate number, etc. While I am talking to one officer, the other is on the radio, calling the description in.
    Fast forward 26 minutes.
    The cops are just about to leave, when their radio goes off,a pursuit, I-10East about 20 miles from the hotel, Texas DPS is pursuing a Ford F-250 with an enclosed trailer attached, CA plates.
    OH SH** that's my truck and trailer! Listen to the guy call out the pursuit for 10 minutes or so, when I hear the worst possible thing......
    10-50, 10-50!
    I guess the guy that stole my rig was changing lanes, got squirrely with the trailer, and wrecked.
    Here comes the best part.....
    When he wrecked, he flipped the truck and trailer. The 55 gallon barrel of VP I had in the back ignited, and exploded. I just saw the wreck, truck, trailer and my car are a complete loss, I'm ****ing stuck in Texas, not in Houston, and all of my shit is spread over I-10.
    I guess staying at a Holiday Inn Express dose not necessarily make you smarter......
    I left the truck running, parking lights on, I might as well of put a sign on it that said please take me.
    Good news is that they have the guy on camera getting into the truck, so he will get the GTA charge, not some lessor plea......
    Bad news, well you know the bad news....
    I can't believe that my car, truck and trailer are now a smoldering worthless pile of scrap metal. Not to mention the fact that I lost my computer, camera, clothes and everything else.
    Enjoy.

    Right. More than 4,000 cars stolen in 2009 and only one officer in the entire auto theft department.

    Anyways....

    thats.. funny.. as bad as it sounds, i think its hilarious that he would care so much about his car that he's towing it in a trailer, yet at the same time just leave it running and go inside..
