a reason to not buy a plastic car? yes. The SUV it bumped into had a tiny scratch at the bottom of its bumper.

Saw one parked in front of the lumber pick-up door at Home Depot a few nights ago. If I wasn't in a hurry, I would have waited to see what the guy was picking up to put into it.

That's really more of an argument for no one being allowed to have SUVs. The idea that some Ford heifer would crush such a beautiful specimen of automotive engineering...

great argument except for that whole dismal trunk space, two people only, modest sized people only, best when on dry pavement, snow is not an option, good luck with a car seat, only fun when not in traffic, not comfortable for long rides, is made of plastic, and heavy fines for going significantly faster than 65 mph part of the conversation.

I ran across this in London a few months back. Found the photo cleaning out my computer.

It's possible to avoid all of those things and not own a freaking truck.

If you live in an urban area and you aren't a builder or other laborer, you don't need a truck.

The Lotus is a beautiful car and it physically pains me to see one crushed by some asshole in a Silverado.

I'm slightly bitter because I just got rear ended by a tailgating fuckface in a truck.

it was the college aged driver of the lotus that rear ended the SUV that was waiting for a light to change. More of a reason to not let young kids have fast cars.

Oh.

I stand corrected.

I can see how that would happen, that thing probably jumps off the line a lot faster than a truck. Kid probably had no idea how it would accelerate.

foot slipped off of the tiny clutch apparently. It blasted forward and into the SUV. Not a great situation, the car was not in any type of shape after.

note: don't wear boots and drive a Lotus.

I'm amazed by the number of young guys I've met who bought fast cars with manual and didn't really know how to drive stick. It's like a quarter-life crisis thing.

Granted, anyone can slip the clutch, I've done it too, but never so close to another car.
