Default Fathers.....Never give your car to your daughter

Got this email the other day.............I know the real person who crashed it is a male and was showing off but still a good joke

Daddy, can I borrow your car?
New Ferrari for Dad $1,000,000




Daughter borrows Dad 's new car to try out......
and hits Power Pole at 200 MPH .







The driver only had some bruising (seat belt)
and 2 small cuts.






Car loss? $1 Million bucks!
Waiting list for a new one? 2 years.
When can daughter drive Dad 's car again? Next lifetime.
When will kid not be grounded and see the light of day?
Same day the polar ice caps melt.
But she is still alive....
Priceless................



Car only had 9 miles on it !..................
One mile of it was during the wreck.

Absolutely one of the luckiest idiots on the planet!

I hope insurance said ...don't think so...better yet, cars like these are usually self insured...came out of Daddy's wallet.

At least it didn't hurt anybody else.

As bad as it looks, that isn't that bad of a crash. The car did what it was designed to do. Notice there is very little damage to the drivers area so of course the driver walked away. Now if he/she had hit that pole head on, well let's just say the blood smear on the pavement would be his/her memorial.

That, is one of the LUCKIEST crashes I've ever seen. @ 200 mph, if you F it up, you're lucky to be identifiable afterwords...

The details behind the wreck are almost as crazy as the wreck itself:

It was quite the story around here for a while. Malibu, CA on PCH

Driving at 162mph in traffic on a normal roadway is insane, I sometimes hit 120 or 135 in my car on the highway and weaving traffic becomes increasingly difficult, but if i were at almost 170 i dont think i could handle it.

Yes the safety pod works well in crashes......it was a solid crash if you look at the phone pole or the engine that is worth more than a house lying a few hundred metres down the road

And oh well he has another enzo sitting in his garage plus a SLR but none of the have the right paper work to drive in cali lol

I liked the explanation about who was driving... "Uh yeah, it was some guy, I don't remember telling him he could drive my 1.2 million dollar car, and uh, he ran up into the hills before the cops got here..." It's a two seater and there are two guys at the accident... lets see here, carry the 2, divide by 3.14, uh yeah, BS!
