Detective Max Gaetanno was vacationing this summer with his wife when he pulled off the highway to get gas. While he was outside filling the tank his wife was watching Max intently. There he stood almost in a daze, his eyes glued to the rear of the car that was being refueled directly in front of theirs.
“What’s the matter, Maxi?” she asked.
“I don’t know for sure,” he replied, “but there’s something fishy about that car in front of us.”
“Look’s perfectly normal to me,” she said.
“Well not to me!” He shot back. “I think it’s a stolen car. In fact, I’m going to call my partner back at the station house, and I’m going to have him run that plate number and I’ll bet it won’t match the year, make and model of the car that it’s attached to.”
The question very simply is: What did Max notice that made him suspicious?
