After being astonished at stories out of Chicago about city approved towing companies selling seized vehicles it seems Mayor Daley, after immediately denying any wrong doing, is reworking the rules. A virtual army of aldermen voiced their displeasure in the system. The city sold seized cars as scrap to a towing firm that resold many of them at auction for thousands of dollars, while the owners were stuck paying fines and their car payments with no chance at reclaiming their vehicles. Sometimes those investigative reports do payoff. I've always wanted to be an investigative reporter but have been told it requires a lot of work and I'm not into that. Where's that next Autoblog Garage test car?
