Reciting the tale on Twitter, GMP Traffic officers stated: "The driver of this Corsa tried to evade our #GMPSRTT patrol in Bolton earlier but his navigational skills led him into rear of a car dealership.
"Found to be disqualified x 4 & wanted."
Officers also confirmed that the vehicle was seized - with prohibition issued for tinted windows and an insecure battery.
The driver was arrested and held in remand following the incident.
"If you’re planning a romantic night out on Scout Rd, it’s probably best if you’re not under the influence of Cannabis, be in your dads car that you have no insurance for and definitely don’t say you are 60 when you are actually 23.
"Arrested & (dads) car seized."
As far as dates go, that's probably up there with some of the worst imaginable.
The father will also have to pay around £100 recovery fee to get the car back, on top of £25 a day for storage.
"Owner can have it back the same day if they come & provide insurance / details etc." confirmed police.
But now these cyber crooks have apparently turned their attention towards luxury home products.
Police have revealed an increase in hot tub fraud since the start of the pandemic; whereby scammers will advertise a non-existent unit to potential buyers, warn them they cannot permit a viewing due to coronavirus restrictions, and then cut off all contact once payment is made.
Posting online via their official Twitter account, GMP stated: "Fraudsters are using online sites to advertise hot tubs for sale.
"They will request deposits for the hot tubs and tell the victim that [their] delivery date is to be confirmed.
"The fraudster will tell the victim the hot tub cannot be viewed because of lockdown restrictions.
"The fraudster will then cease contact with the victim meaning the deposit is lost."
Officers are warning buyers to be vigilant before making any big purchases online, and to spread the word about the unusual scam which is leaving many people out of pocket.
Staying safe online includes dealing only with reputable sellers, avoid paying by money transfers, checking the URL in the web browser (is it actually the same website as the design suggests?).
Police are also encouraging people to use their instinct; if sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.

Kit Malthouse - Minister of State for Crime, Policing and the Fire Service - made a number of media appearances this morning to state that the non-emergency 101 police phone number can be used to report any social gatherings of more than six people.
Speaking on BBC Radio 4's Today Programme, Mr Malthouse said: "We are in discussions about what reporting mechanisms there might be but there is obviously the non-emergency number that people can ring and report issues they wish to.
"Certainly during the initial stage of lockdown, we did see a surge in those reports coming through to the police.
"If people are concerned, if they do think there is contravention then that option is open to them."
Pressed on whether that would involve reporting a gathering of seven or more in a neighbour’s garden, Mr Malthouse continued: "It is open to neighbours to do exactly that through the non-emergency number and if they are concerned and they do see that kind of thing, then absolutely they should think about it.’
When asked to clarify whether residents should be concerned about local breaches of law in neighbouring properties and report them to the police, he replied simply: "Yes".
It comes as the new 'rule of six' is set to be enforceable by law and applies in any setting, whether that’s "indoors or outdoors, at home or in the pub."
National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) chairman Martin Hewitt however denied that enforcement of the 'rule of six' relies on people “grassing up” their neighbours.
Speaking on BBC Breakfast, he said: "I think what it relies on is all of us being responsible,"
"We all have a responsibility to do what we can do, to take the steps that are required to stop the transmission and to abide by regulations so we can prevent this disease moving further through the country."
Kit Malthouse confirmed that guidance for police officers would be made available "in the next couple of days" from the College of Policing on how to apply the new regulations.
