Ferarri V Train

http://www.wfaa.com/sharedcontent/dws/wfaa/latestnews/stories/wfaa090402_ac_ferarri.9699b563.html

According to the segment on the news, the driver was the owner of a high end service shop. I am willing to bet the Ferarri was not his but a client.

I wonder if the owner was watching the news tonight.

From the comments section on that article

Quote:
The man is dealing with issue's about the death of his son. I wonder how anyone here would deal with the death of their only child. Probably with pure mental strength and never having a weak moment or break down or drinking to cope and just not thinking straight. Love all the keyboard upstanding citizens who have NEVER done anything wrong and keyboard geniuses who have NEVER made mistakes on here. Shouldn't you all be in church or helping the homeless or breast feeding starving babies or at your Mensa meetings instead of commenting on here? You are all perfect, brilliant humans after all! Give me a break! I hope none of you will ever go through what he has. And yes, it is his car and no, he's not rich or an a-hole or an idiot. Just going through a really rough time right time.

I guess you never know till you are in the situation but I cannot see my self distraught enough to leave my 16v on the train tracks ... at least I hope not because that would really piss me off.

Started reading the comments section, and you know what, all you folks here on shopforum are awesome. Even the ones whose opinions seem way out of left field are intellectual giants in comparison. So thanks for not being THEM!!

Something tells me that car may well have been seriously in the "rode hard and put away wet" category, so the loss was probably not that great.

Welcome to the school of hard knocks, duuuuudddde.
