Video shows tow truck driver take man’s $110,000 car for joyride

PEARLAND, TX (KPRC) – Brian Montgomery paid $110,000 for his Nissan GTR, it’s his baby.

“It’s an exotic sports car,” he says. “It can go 0 to 60 miles per hour in 2.7 seconds. It’s an extremely fun car to drive, put it that way.”

On Sunday, the car started acting up, so Brian had it towed to a Nissan dealership. Or so he thought.

“I called the dealership on Monday around noon and asked if they had a chance to look at it, and they said, ‘Your car is not here,’” Montgomery said.

Montgomery said he called the tow truck company and they explained their driver brought the car to their lot because the Nissan dealership wasn’t open on Sunday, they were in the process of transferring the car to the dealership.

The car is equipped with a sophisticated system that records video, audio, speeds and GPS every time the car is turned on.

The following day, after he picked it up from the dealership, he decided to take a look at the video. He was shocked at what he saw.

“They broke the law,” Brian said. “They took it without my permission, they drove it recklessly. Driving 75 miles per hour through a crowded neighborhood with kids playing on the sidewalk.”

There are several minutes of video that show someone driving the car and at one point he admits it belongs to a customer and that he almost lost control while driving it.

“B****, this car is fast as f***,” someone is heard saying. “Oh my God, dude.”

Police are still working to identify the truck driver seen in the video. He could face charges once caught. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
