Forgot to mention that after I snapped those photos of the Chevy Malibu that was taking up two parking spaces over at Fry’s, I walked over to my car and stowed away my camera when a white guy in his mid- to late-30s pulled up in a black Tahoe and asked me if I wanted to buy some surround sound speakers.
Realizing my great fortune, that this was a variation of the “The Great International White Van Speaker Scam” (also reported on here and here), I knew better than to deal with a shady guy like him, so I said no, and proceeded to enter my car. The last words I heard were, “I hope you don’t think I’m–” and then a laugh as he realized I wasn’t going to fall for his scam.
In retrospect, I should’ve played along to try and get some more information out of him, but I was pretty damn tired and didn’t think about it until later. D’oh! But to the best of my knowledge, his license plate was 5FCK850.
Anyways, just a warning that this scam is *still* going on! :P
