Post Man doing doughnuts crashes newly purchased car

Filed under: Weird Car News,Pontiac

A man in Riverside, Ohio, apparently didn't catch the latest Hagerty list of up-and-coming collector cars. Rather than drive his newly purchased Pontiac G8 straight home for its coronation as a garage queen with an appreciating price, he drove it straight from closing the deal to a parking lot to do some doughnuts.

Yup used only, we went thru that a year or so ago when my wife backed her GT into my car trailer. Luckily I found a used correct color rear fascia about 1 hour away.

I agree, but they do hold there resale value impressively, so you never know. But it depends on the chassis damage.
