Default Oklahoma man arrested for Youtube Vid

This may be a repost, but I just heard about it the other day and just NOW took time to look it up.

Apparently, a Corvette Lover ran his Vette at 190 on an Oklahoma freeway, then posted a Youtube vid titled 1000+HP Corvette Doing 195+.

He thought it would enhance his eBay listing of said car and therefore linked the vid to the eBay listing.

The lawdogs were not impressed.

Enjoy:

yep, its still on the first page of S/S, but you have more info than we have on there.. they linked to a news story that reported that the law enforcement got a call complaining about the actions so they tracked the guy down.... no mention of an ebay listing.. which makes this funnier because i wouldn't buy a car that I know was driven like that.

Oh I tell ya. What a moron. I knew he had the video out, and they'd tracked him down somehow, but without knowing anything I looked at my husband and said, "Did the douche give out his full name and address? I mean, how did they know WHO he was, how to find his car unless he did that or took a shot of the plates before getting in the car?"

Apparently it was the eBay listing got him pinched.

What really boggles the mind is there are places he could have taken that car and LEGALLY ran it top end, for a small fee. OKC isn't that far from the Ardmore drag strip track... though that one may just be a quarter mile track - it may not be set up for full top end runs.

For that matter, had he looked ahead, he could have taken to the Texas Mile and ran it out. That would take some planning and logistics work, but jeez.

Some one snitched on him lolololz he is dumb. I agree with Mishri, there is no way I would buy a car abused like that. I think the best cars to buy are ones that are driven but not raped, Stock FTW.
