the land-sea capability of the UHAC is provided buy a set of tracks – similar to a tank – fitted with captured-air foam cells that provide buoyancy, act as paddles when in the water, and behave as track-driven pads when on the land

The first thing that came to mind was bubble-wrap.

One night the Norse god Thor was feeling a bit horny so he decided to come down to earth to satisfy his needs.

He picked up a good looking woman with a great body and they went to her apartment she only had one small problem, she had a speech impediment, but this didn't affect the sex. They went at it hot and heavy all night long.

In the morning Thor had to leave so he decided he should at least tell her his name so he said to her, "I'm Mighty Thor and I have to leave now."

She looked at him and said, "You're thore?! I'm tho thor I can hardly pith."

Sure, but what does that have to do with law enforcement? They're not the "car enthusiast revenge squad."

Of course they are; the middle classes pay taxes to try and get a police force which frowns on this sort of thing and reacts accordingly.
Actually when it happened to me they chased the car intermittently across 3 counties and couldn't catch it.

Having had the experience of having my own performance car stolen temporarily, and damaging it to the extent of needing a new engine and reupholstering, at the time I felt capital punishment is not enough.

You may think this is a little severe, but people who are into cars feel they have had part of their soul ripped out of them if it is stolen and trashed, especially if it is their personal hobby and they are doing it at the limits of their budget.
