    Okay. Long story made short.


    Old man comes into my dealership to buy a brand new Lincoln Town Car.

    He hops in the drivers seat with his wife in the back and backs out of the parking spot and he puts it in drive. He thought his foot was on the brake so when the car started to go faster he just kept pushing down harder on the throttle pedal.

    He ended up driving 3/4 of the way around the dealership and when he came around the front of the dealership he was drifting sideways through the service lane.

    Old man got some skills yo.

    The salesman in the passengers seat kicked the old mans foot of the throttle pedal at 75 mph just before they hit the first car.





    Started off by tagging the back corner of this Cougar:

    Then they hit the Rodeo in the back right 1/4 panel:

    The Rodeo then got pushed over into the Kia that was parked next to it:

    Good thing the Town Cars have a good front end crash rating:

    $50,000 car that had 4 miles on it. It had never been driven off the lot before:

    Oh................









    I park my truck right behind all of this mess:

    Three of our customers got a nice phone call yesterday.

    "Thanks for bringing your car to us for service. It's totaled."

    OMFG

    That must be why every dealership where I've gone for a test drive, the salesman drives the car off the lot, then we exchange.

    Ah....seeing that I just finished dumping $25K into it, I don't even want to think about replacement costs on it.

    I'm just trying to figure out how in the hell do you mistake the gas pedal for the brake??? Now I can see if it had a clutch and you get some pedals confused...but damn!! Only 2 pedals

    The old lady in the back seat got pretty fawked up from what I heard. She didn't have her seat belt on and she ended up with a compound fracture in her arm and smashed her face up pretty bad. Back seat is all bloody.

    She did end up in the front passengers seat with the salesman.

    After the age of 55, mandatory driving tests every two years. That is ridiculous that it even happened. Who's insurance pays for all that?
