One from my bucket list

In 2008 I acquired an unmarked shiny black Ford Crown Victoria V8 Police Interceptor from a suburban Kansas City Police Dept. I then drove it back cross-country to New York – much to the chagrin of speeding motorists in six states.

Less than a year later the car was stolen in Manhattan – much to MY chagrin and the disbelief of the NYPD.
