All we care about is probably which number GTH it is.  Does the value improve  due to the owner and event or drop due to the damage? 8)

A stunt with movie glass = zero damage. Now if he'd driven it through the garage wall and into the pool it might have an effect on value.

Cena's stunt is a ripoff of the PR stunt Chrysler did, circa 1994, when they unveiled the Jeep Grand Cherokee at the Detroit Auto Show at Cobo Hall.  While all the stupefied "journos" stood around by the front of the auditorium, awaiting Jeep to begin its press conference, Lutz and Casting and someone else from Chrysler management drove the GC off of the street, busted through the candy-glass (very well kept secret...no word leaked out ahead of time!) and shocked the sh!t out of everyone. 

That was a true "breakthrough."

Yes indeed but the shock factor of the car going through the glass is priceless

The car # should be known. We don't care which owner was stupid enough to provide the car.
