So I'm drafting up an outline of my current story, and In the second chapter the characters break out of a local jail.
In the story, America has been taken over by a fascist dictator, and corrupt government officials started manipulating laws to take advantage of citizens deemed "Not American Enough."
Well, the timeline for all of this is the early 90s. The main characters don't start the main plot until Twenty Minutes into the Future
, so this has been going on for the better part of two decades.
Anyways, the protagonists are running through a police impound lot and happen across a Ferrari 512 Testarossa
that had belonged to a wealthy non-Caucasian person.
Problem is, I don't want to break Willing Suspension of Disbelief
. Foreign imports slowed to a halt in the mid-90s in this continuity, so finding a newer non-American vehicle is unlikely unless it had been smuggled in from Canada or Mexico. (And as this takes place near Washington, DC, that's unlikely.) If it's too unlikely (and it's mentioned in the story that's its a million-to-one stroke of luck), I'd probably just make it so it was something more practical impounded for the same reason.
