Not me but someone I used to know who once worked at a Mercedes dealership.

They had one car come in that had just mysteriously stopped. The owner was clueless as to why.

The fault was soon diagnosed as shredded timing belt resulting from mechanical interference. It seems that the guy was in the habit of hiding his fetish gear from his wife by stashing it under the bonnet of the car. The timing belt cover looked like the perfect place to hide his handcuffs.

I have to say I took it with a pinch of salt myself, but it's still a good story.
