The whole ‘stolen’ Ford Fiesta Movement story had more holes than a block of Swiss cheese to begin with, but now things have become more clear. The owner of the car, ‘MacHammer’ Jake Bronstein announced that he found the allegedly stolen Fiesta locked up in a New York City impound lot… We’re so appalled that we’re not even going to continue with the details. But what we would like to add is that even though we didn’t see it mentioned on other sites, a quick search on the internet reveals that Bronstein has made a name for himself as a publicity stunt artist – even Wikipedia has an article on him as you can see after the jump. And some wonder why Ford chose Bronstein for the Fiesta Movement test cars…
