Default OT - Very expensive driving lesson!

Found this on another site. OUCH!!

BTW - If the guy paid $500,000+ for that car then he made two big mistakes with it...

I think he can salvage a rear tail light!

On race track I doubt insurance covers this. Expensive track ride.

I had a custpmer do the same thing with a 930 slant nose years ago. He had the driving instructor run some hat laps with him while the instructor was driving and got pumped up about how the car handled. He said he could hear the instructor telling him not to lift repeatedly. He lifted anyway. End result 58k worth of damage the left front wheel was 2 feet off of the ground and the rest of the wheels were on the ground. The car had 1200 miles on it. There was not a straight panel on the car. Insurance paid as he was not racing but taking a driving course.

Too bad. It was a nice car. Looks like some form of track testing or demo runs.

Was visiting a friend at a Chevy dealership he works at when the shop wrecker went out to retrieve a Corvette. Seems a customer took one on a demo run, lost control in the rain, and wrapped it around pole.

That driver might have been banged up pretty good. He hit driver's door side and looks like he it relatively flat which is a bad way to dissapate energy.....that wreck had to hurt. Not sure why the tire marks are making a right when the course goes left....??

Don't drive over your head....
