Saw something similar once. Passed by a BMW dealership and some guy had rear ended another BMW right by the exit. Both cars were totalled. One was just parked and the other had dealer plates.

I am sure the dealership is insured, and that will pay for the loss.

That color of the Viper is pretty ugly.

I could see how something like this could happen when half his windshield is covered by a dealership sticker

Good thing you didn't drive by after it happened. At least that might be able to salvage the doors.:p

I wonder if he was fired.

According to the thread at SRTForums, he was not. Maybe he's a relative or the owner? :confused:

:shrug: Could be legit, but it was posted on 4/1 so I have my doubts.

At least it wasn't an Airbus.



WRECKED A340-600 at TULOUSE FRANCE

These are pictures of the wreck of a brand new A340-600 in November 2007 , that had never flown. (never saw (1) hour in the air)

Thank these French and their Arab friends for this bit of "comedy of errors".

Nine employees of the Arab airline were in the aircraft, but " no employees" from Airbus were present.

The Arab's taxied out to! the run-up area.

Then they took all four engines to takeoff power with virtually an empty aircraft. (They obvious didn't read the run-up manuals.)

No chocks were set , (not that it would have mattered at that power setting) Brakes will not hold it back at full power anyway.

As it turns out the takeoff warning horn was blaring away in the cockpit because they had all FOUR engines at full power.

The aircraft computers thought they were trying to takeoff but it had not been configured properly (flaps/slats, etc, etc).

Then one of these brain surgeons decided to pull the " Ground Sense " circuit breaker to quiet the alarms.

This fools the aircraft into thinking it is in the air.

"A big ,big mistake " !

As soon as they did that, the computers automaticlly "released " all the brakes. ("this is a Safety feature so that pilots don't land with the brakes on".)

There was No time to stop and no one smart enough thought to reduce the max power setting.....

So the rest is as you see it below.

On the blog, yes. But on the forum it was posted on 3/30.

Arent those things made with light aluminum and crumple pretty easily? The Viper that is.

Back in my military days, I was on TDY in New Mexico for training, and part of it included three days of land navigation exercises in the desert. So we rented a Mitsubishi SUV and were going down a dirt road - a little too fast. Driver lost control and we crashed in a ditch into a tree. Truck was totaled, which was unfortunate because it was a brand new model and the first time the rental company had rented it out haha. Good times.

I hada friend that worked at a hobby shop and one of their customers came in on his 16th birthday to show of his brand new porsche. One of the other employees persuaded the guy to let him drive it... long story short there was a wrecked, brand new Porsche with NO INSURANCE on it. Of course I thought you had to at least have some kind of insurance before a car left the lot... but I'm just relating what I was told... Oh I know... the insurance didn't cover anyone but the owner driving the car, and the guy who wrecked it didn't have insurance at all.
