Just goes to prove that most accidents happen close to home. In this case, about three feet from home.

These things don't corner like Ferraris. Serious under-steer limitations.

Not my work. I posted the second pic somewhere and another user came up with the photoshopped take on it.

I bought this "car" from my good buddy Krissy McDdivitt Von Hennek because it had a sunroof. Worst vehicle I ever owned. So bad that I contemplated leaving in the departure parking area at SF airport, with the engine running, a six pack in the front seat and the pink slip signed.

This thread is always worth checking in on!

Chaz wrote about a tractor incident:

I don't have a picture but maybe I can paint one with words. I once was driving across the Colorado St. Bridge in Pasadena. It's an old beautiful bridge that literally curves across the Arroyo Seco. There's a kind of curvy approach to get on the bridge heading west. So I see this brand new Ferrari, still with the dealer plates parked to the side with its right fender all smashed up. There's a guy standing next to it on a mobile phone with his head in his hand and that "Oh shit" look on his face.

The story is easy to figure out. Just bought the car and going to take it out for some paces. Problem is, with a Ferrari and its ilk, if you just think about the accelerator, the thing immediately is doing 60. Bashed right into that curve. Last I checked, years later, the red marks are still on the concrete rail!
