Have you ever wanted a Corvette so badly you might be willing to smash through a car dealership to land one?  Well, there are a couple of enterprising individuals in Canada who had their eyes on a 2011 Heritage Edition Grand Sport and decided to skip the $50,000 price tag by doing just that.

But seriously, you really shouldn’t get any ideas.  The thieves were initially able to get away because police deemed them too dangerous to chase after being clocked at speeds of 136 mph, but they caught up with them only two days later.

This Corvette may have been taken in the fashion of Gone in 60 Seconds, but it made its way back 172,800 seconds later.

Still, if you think those 172,800 seconds are worth it, I wont judge you too harshly.
