Tow Truck Driver Steals Nissan GT-R For Day Long Joyride

Dash Cam

We’re guessing he’s also looking for a new job right about now.

It might take a village to raise a child, but it only takes one village idiot to tear apart a childhood dream. The unnamed tow truck driver in this series of videos may not have wrecked the Nissan GT-R dream car he was tasked with hauling to the shop, but he certainly committed one of the most flagrant acts of customer car abuse that we’ve seen. As Houston’s ABC 13 reports, owner Brian Montgomery found some surprise footage waiting for him when he got his car back from a visit to the dealership.

As it turns out, the tow truck driver tasked with bringing the GT-R to the shop took a detour.

In fact, it was quite a bit of a detour. It all began when Montgomery, who uses a wheelchair, saw that the transmission light was on in his GT-R and decided to play things safe by scheduling an appointment to get it checked out. The car only got there a few hours later. In the interim, it appears that the tow truck driver stole the Nissan and took it out for a spin that lasted hours. In the process, he goes to his neighborhood, drives the car recklessly, and even picks up friends for a joyride. Making matters worse is the fact that the driver and his friends stole a pair of sunglasses and a GoPro cigarette charger to add insult to injury. Then things get even worse.

At around 2 am, the tow truck driver decides to go for another spin in the GT-R except this time, he sees the dash cam and unplugs it.

Whatever happens after that is anyone's guess, but given the multiple videos posted depicting disregard for Montgomery's baby, we can't imagine that he went too soft on the car. Royal Towing, the company that contracted the unnamed tow truck driver, said that it would cover the cost of the transmission repair and asked that the videos be taken off the Internet. According to the company, the driver was a contractor and they were not responsible for his actions. However the transmission may be the least of their concerns. A full-fledged lawsuit sounds like a better course of action for Montgomery. So far, a police report has been filed but the driver remains unknown.

It makes no sense for Montgomery to take the videos down because in the age of information, it's only right that the community of car lovers can know who the bad apples are to avoid them and protect the cars they are so passionate about.
