that shit will buff out.
but seriously i nearly hit another car trying to part our medium John Deere my Junior year of high school.
what happened was my car was in the shop. dad took his truck to work. mom went to work. I wasn't riding the bus. i was like fuck it i'm take the Deere 8400 to school. i about backed over some dumbass cheerleader's car. I'm not used to driving that tractor usually i use our Cat tractor cause we got a Cat that size and dad put my Cat tractor in the back of the barn i'm like screw it i'll take his Deere.
but thank god i only live like 2 or 3 miles from the school. still took me like 7-8 minutes get to school.

In high school, I worked at a Chevy dealer....During my 6 months there, I drove a S10 into a ditch (luckily it had 4 wheel drive), dented the rear end of a Baretta and nearly drove a Mustang 5.0 from the lot to the highway in 3.2 seconds (I was just learning stick and the thing flew)...

Forklift crashes into new car, lucky there was no one in the passenger seat.
Passenger seat? More like luckily there wasn't someone in the driver's seat.

Why ban him, he actually brings good videos to the forum.

Although it does get annoying that he has to keep them on his site.

As I said to Moog in the other thread, the guy's method of posting is not the greatest (but, that's my opinion)...

That being said, if you have an issue with him, send a PM to one of the moderators of Car Talk...we really don't need the spam smiley used in every one of trev's threads.

^ How about when he makes a thread, a Mod edits it and just puts the video on here instead of us going to his site.

I don't see what the big deal is here. Lots of people post vids from DPCcars. Most of them are interesting and are definitely car-related, so why get your panties in such a twist over it???

That car (the Atom) would be an absolute blast to take up into the mountains here in Colorado, what an awesome car.

as if the weight disadvantage wasn't bad enough for the M3(in comparison to the Atom which is only 1005lbs!!!) there's a camera guy in it.
