October 24, 2014 - Funny Friday

LOST WIFE!
A husband went to police station to report his missing wife:
Husband: I’ve lost my wife. She went shopping yesterday and has still not come home.
Sergeant: What is her height ?
Husband: Oh, 5 something . . .

Sergeant: Build?
Husband: Not slim, not really fat.

Sergeant: Color of eyes?
Husband: Never noticed.

Sergeant: Color of hair?
Husband: Changes according to season.
Sergeant: What was she wearing?
Husband: Dress/suit/blue jeans -- I don’t remember exactly.
Sergeant: Did she go in a car?
Husband: yes.
Sergeant: What kind of car was it?
Husband: 2015 Corvette Stingray 3LT with the Z51 Performance Package, shark gray metallic paint, with the 6.2 liter V8 engine with Direct Injection generating 460 HP., 8-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission, and GT bucket seats, and has a very thin scratch on the front left door.…

At this point the husband started crying...

Sergeant: Don't worry sir....... we’ll find your car.

 

An auto product for your regular cars not your classic cars.
