I don't know about you but I was out in the sun today, having fun and doin' work too. All those shiny cars at the car show got me to looking at the sorry state of my faithful daily driver, so it's all clean and shiny too--including the aluminum wheels. So, in honor of the sun bleached state of my brain and the automotive theme of the day, I present to you, an automotive fail. This one's local--happened at Blue Springs Ford in Blue Springs, MO, an eastern suburb of Kansas City back in late June. I kyped this photo off of one of the news sites (KSHB and KMBC had the story), and sent it in to Fail Blog:
The person who took the photos was holding out on us! He saved the best for the folks at Fail Blog, and it made the vote page. I voted for it--five thumbs down for sure.
According to the reports, the driver says he mistook the accelerator for the brake while test driving this F-250 pick up. I wonder what the sales person was thinking. (This could be him, above, being assisted out by fire fighters from the Central Jackson County Fire Protection District.)
"Oh, shit!" comes to mind...
