    Tesla Roadster "found" in shipping container on TV show "Storage Hunters"

    A coworker said last nights episode of TruTV's reality TV show Storage Hunters had someone finding a Tesla Roadster in a shipping container. I'm pretty skeptical when it comes to these shows (Storage Wars, Auction Hunters, etc), and think that sometimes the finds are planted there, but I've set the DVR for this episode which is re-airing on Sunday morning. Depending on which time zone and whether it is the HD channel, it looks like it's going to be on at 9:30am or 12:30pm.

    Is there an episode title or any other identifying text such as location?

    The battery could be in horrid condition, having sat so long uncharged.

    I don't have a garage and keep my Roadster in a storage facility around the block when it snows. People have no idea what's going on when I drive out of the unit. We never leave it in there for more than a few days at a time but I could see how a Roadster could end up in a storage unit.

    Episode "Judgement Day" and depending on your cable provider you can see it here http://www.trutv.com

    It's in the final segment of the program, it's supposedly some sort of insurance write-off and they drive off in the car...??

    Rumor has it that Tesla lost track of a couple of the cars ... I wonder if this might be one of those. Teg will know!

    It's a "Sport", black interior, CF hard-top. License plate was blurred so couldn't see which State, but somewhere where no front plates needed... C'mon TEG....

    I believe this show was about storage containers, not units, that are auctioned off.

    Again, I think many of these shows are a little scripted (read:fake), so I'm a little skeptical...
