    Okay, continuing my run of silly news events, here's another corker :nurr_nur:

    A reliable family car suddenly developed a tendency to decelerate, leading to the discovery that it had been driven for years with $US40,000 ($52,000) worth of cocaine stashed in the petrol tank.
    A New Orleans family had bought the 1996 Toyota Camry from a used car dealer in 1997.

    When the car started losing speed, it was taken to a mechanic, who discovered two bricks of cocaine wrapped around the vehicle's fuel line.

    Baffled police are now trying to trace earlier owners of the car.

    What a good reason to learn to service your own vehicle!
