Default Win 631hp lambo... crash in a few hours

http://autos.yahoo.com/blogs/motoram...220724449.html

Cliff notes.

- Truck driver win's $200k 631hp lambo

- Got a warning from police to slow down.

- slid 75 feet off the road into a field, busting the oil pan and bumper. Told police he was only going 40-50mph

luls.

Could afford to pay taxes obviously for it, but not smart enough to resale it. Could have probably sold it for a $50k profit over what he paid for the taxes.

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing
Default

....well **** how much were the taxes on it?


that really sucks though...easy come easy go I guess, except I'm guessing he's financially worse off or no?

I read another article about this guy... You'd think with 4 kids he would do the smart thing and sell the car.

But I guess some people just lack common sense... The tires alone will probably break the bank for this guy.

Well I Don't think I could resist taking the thing out on the highway and seeing what it could do. I wouldn't take it up to 220mph or whatever its stop speed is, but I bet I would see how fast it could hit 150.

You wouldn't want a joy ride?

Whew. LUckily it was only an ugly ***, booger-green Lambo and not a Ford GT or something pheonominal (sp?) like that.

Still, I think Red Foreman would like to say a few words to the gentleman.

The guy was a douche before, he's still a douche after the fact.
Same thing with people than win the lotto and end up being broke, lol.

Only 50k profit you say?

Christ, you pay sales tax (use 10% as a high number) of 20,000. Proceed to sell for 150,000 (75% of sticker ) and profit over a hundred large.

Forget about the income tax and tags there skippy??


Well I Don't think I could resist taking the thing out on the highway and seeing what it could do. I wouldn't take it up to 220mph or whatever its stop speed is, but I bet I would see how fast it could hit 150. this

Me: Drive it just a wee bit, sell it, pay off Hemi, buy new 5.0 Stang and used 4x4 FTW

I would def do something like this as well. Altho it would be hella fun, I don't see the logic in keeping a car like that. Esp for us everyday Joes/Janes.
