crank rental
 n.— «Call it a crank rental. Then there’s the “rock ride,” when a crank addict reports his own car stolen after lending it out in exchange for a rock of methamphetamine.There’s one particular upscale car, a Lexus, on Tuesday morning’s list that the officers immediately greet with suspicion as a rock rental in their daily briefing.» —“The State Bumper Crop of Auto Thieves Thrives” by Geoffrey Mohan in Fresno Los Angeles Times (California) May 6, 2001.
