Ex-New England Patriots running back Corey Dillon wants his money back. Dillon is suing a Los Angeles body shop for more than half a million dollars after it allegedly failed to make $55,000 in upgrades to his Ferrari and squandered Dillon’s $470,000 investment in the shop on Big Macs and booze, according to TMZ.com.
Dillon’s suit claims that he left his 2005 Ferrari F430 at the shop to have a twin-turbo system installed and wrote a check for the work before it was done. After 14 months of waiting, the car remained untouched. Dillon said he had to call the police and have a tow truck remove his car and take it to another shop.
Dillon also claims that the shop’s owners persuaded him to give them $470,000 to make improvements to the shop. Instead of installing say, a new paint booth or frame machine, the owners allegedly spent the cash on “fast food, perfume, liquor, groceries and gasoline," according to the claim.
