I've got a friend who's an expert in rare Lambos stolen Mission Impossible style from celebrity chefs, so I'm getting a kick out of this story

That's weird that car buffs would know this car by its actual name.

There's a guy that drives a safety orange Gallardo Spyder around here. He looks exactly like you'd assume: 55, balding, pudgy, over-tanned, sedately plodding through traffic getting 10mpg. The guy with a 430 Spyder is the same except thin but even more goober-y.

Good for them both, being so successful, but seriously if a car like that can't make you seem cool, whoa.

Meh. Kid didn't steal the car. The kid probably works as a look out for a car theft ring, which owns the locker. Notice how the storage company wouldn't comment on if the kid rented the locker or who actually rented the locker.

As far as the drive by goes, yeah the kid did that. I figure he got into a Facebook fight with some other kid over a girl and decided to borrow a motorcycle from the locker to do a drive by. The victims finger the kid, the police start looking for him which leads them to the storage company. Employees at the storage recognize him and points the police to the storage locker that they see him around all of the time. If this is true the kid is probably farked in more ways than one.

So, I'm assuming Guy had theft insurance on the car and got paid for it. So, now I'm guessing the insurance company is now the rightful owner, so either Guy has to pay back the money to get the car, or there maybe a Gecko driving it around town now.

It was never stolen, it was being held as insurance against future blackmail for covering up their sexual history.

They need to be driven on a race track. If I was rich, I don't think I'd buy an exotic. I have my eye on a nice Audi station wagon.

What kind of lame ass car theft ring holds a car for over a year? They should have had a buyer before they even stole the farking thing. It's not like the thing blends in.

Huh, the only thing I got in serious trouble for when I was in high school was smoking a little weed.

Perhaps I should have tried repelling into an auto store and stealing a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder.....on weed

I like to think if it were found in his locker there would be a Ramones sticker on the back window and side-swipe damage from a drunken mishap with a cab.

I suspect if you devised your plan and tried to execute it both while on weed the results would have been disappointing. The security camera video.......now that would have been a hit.

FTA:
The general manager of CSI, which has 2,000 storage units on 20 acres, said the 8-by-40-foot locker had been rented before the date of the car theft. The manager, who declined to be identified, said renters have to be at least 18 and show ID. Registration, a driver's license and proof that the car is running are also required for those who use the units specifically for storing cars, he said.

He wouldn't say whose name the unit was rented under.

The general manager then put on his sunglasses and walked to his hummvee..

YEAAAAAHHHHH..

Is this where I post my hate and project my superiority over those people who drive these cars? If so, everyone who drives one is a douche and I wouldn't drive one over my Honda even if I had the money. Which I could make with no problems, I choose not to. If I did ever drive a Ferrari it would be for ironic purposes.

This is pretty useless information, and so late in the article.

The only difference between most american foods and european goods are the portions, most of the food isn't bad for you until you eat a portion big enough for 3 people.

Kind of pissed guy can afford that car.

He owns a restaurant here in Sacramento called Tex Wasabi's, which is a combination of BBQ and sushi joint. I don't eat raw fish, but the BBQ sucks.

Never formally trained and it looks like he is more of a manager than anything else (BA hotel management).
Has a cooking show and Diners/Dives.

Uhhhh, about that....

He's a graduate of the culinary program of American River College (where I work now). They're always talking him up, and he came back to campus recently for a fund-raiser so that the program's cafe can get a much-needed expansion.

The cafe makes a damned fine lunch for $15 a head, with differing menus every week. When I give campus tours and mention the cafe, it gives me the chance do to my Guy Fieri impersonation. Spike up the hair, put my glasses on the back of my head and pretend to talk with my mouth full, "It's off da hook!"

What the fark?

Celebrity chef?

They cook food. It may be good food, but who the fark cares about their personality or looks or whatever?

Seriously, the world is farked up. Lots of people can cook well. If they aren't making food I don't give a flying fark.

Do you keep your dignity at home, or do you have a desk at your office? And, how much schooling is necessary before being able to have the nuanced culinary stance of "Fried food is awesome"?

I like how exotics look, but I doubt I'd ever drop that kind of coin in one even if I could. $225k for a car that goes 0-60 .25 seconds faster than a Z06 Vette or a GT500 Super Snake? I'd take the money I saved and buy two (4 if we're talking the GT500) for the inevitable wreckage that would ensue

I'm not particularly a fan of exotics, but those cars are built to do a hell of a lot more than drive fast in a straight line. Not something that could be said for the Ford or Chevy.

2:50.7 for the ZR1
2:51.8 for the Gallardo LP570 SL (TFA's car was not a 570 or SL)
2:53.5 for the Z06
2:53.9 for the Murcielago
2:54.6 for the 430 Scuderia

And yes, 3:01.2 for the 302 Laguna Seca, ahead of an R8, Cayman R, 911 Turbo...
