That dude is fighting a losing battle.

Sucks that he lost the car, but he should have moved faster and quieter to get it back.

It is so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.

You know, I used to think a car was just a way of getting from point A to point B -- and on weekends, point C. But that was the old me. That man died the moment I laid eyes on a 1979 Honda Accord.

Had a professor in college who tried to be cool and talk about his cool car, a Fiero. He always complained that other cars would knock the hood badge off and he had to keep replacing them

He walked a total 500 miles replacing all the hood ornaments that got stolen. Like he was going to drive anywhere with a subpar fiero.

I have several vintage sports cars (no, nothing very expensive...) and do some SCCA racing. A co-worker keeps bugging me to go crusing with him, and we each bring our sports car. He has a Miata.

No mention of insurance, though 'original owner' took out a loan to buy it, so I'd imagine the bank would require it. If it was insured, was there a payout? If so, then doesn't insurance company now own said Ferrari?

I thought their patent was for "Way to compensate for penis size by use of a 4 wheeled vehicle painted red".

I imagine that would only be true if he filed a claim for it.

He knew exactly where the car was during several periods of the cars history. How hard would it have been to hire a repo company to go and get it back for him? He had the title and a court order. Something very weird is going on with this guy.

Reposessing cars from billionaires in foreign countries just isn't that easy.

Yep, he should have just gone in and stolen it back (hired some toughs) when it was at a track or museum in the USA. And then presented the papers to the police when they came. Hopefully no one would have gotten shot...

Well, it wasn't Fong's to sell in the 1st place, and this thing has passed so many hands, that I think this guy needs to get re-compensation from Fong, not from the guy @ Samsung who paid for the car after it was already in the hands of so many owners.

Shouldn't have let the parking garage attendant drive it
