Just hours after being dropped off, the Corvette Convertible becomes the parking lot owner's plaything.
Premier Parking Spot in Cocoa, Florida is one of those places that look after people's cars while they're on vacation, shuttling them to the port of departure in style.
What's different about this particular parking lot is that the owner thinks looking after cars means taking them for a joyride whenever he feels like it and treating them like his own personal vehicles. WFTV Eyewitness News was tipped off about the actions of lot owner Jay Nieves and decided to investigate by setting up a nice little sting. They rented an irresistible red 2012 Chevy Corvette Convertible, fitted a GPS tracking device, and headed to the lot with a couple of wannabe holidaymakers. Six hours later Jay Nieves was taking the 'Vette for a spin.
The news crew filming him doing burnouts, thrashing it down a dirt road, running some errands at Ace and even stopping for a bite to eat at Applebee's. All in Nieves clocked over 60 miles in the car before the news crew stepped in and confronted him about his actions. Unsurprisingly, the unscrupulous joyrider denied everything. Check back for a follow up as WFTV are planning on taking this story further.
