Re: Yeah, it was a Pelican...

That is just sad.

An acquaintance of mine totaled a custom Ford GT last year. Insurance paid over $200k. Wasn't even a good story, he was pulling out of a Starbucks and slammed the back end into the center divider. Punched the half shaft through the frame. DONE.

Couldn't be the cell phone he was gabbing on, then dropped, then bent over to pick up. Dumbass.

Re: Yeah, it was a Pelican...

I watched that about 10 times and there isn't a bird within 100 yards of that car. The driver is a lying sack, probably too busy staring in the mirror making sure his hair plugs looked natural.
