truly truly impressive.

you'd like to think that at least the driver was drunk... somehow I doubt it...

The driver is under the red arrow! and was most probably busy on her new cell phone, as for being able to drive she did her driver training in a truck and there for was not required to learn how to park!!!
AND THIS IS THE RESULT!
and a EISH im SORRY wil fix it all! LOL

Just imagine you are the proud owner of a C-clas Merc with newly added lowered suspension. Would love to see a pic of his/her face when confronted with this.

Is this a regular Susuki-owner trick?

Well once again there it is. This just proves the importance of aftermarket accessories. If there was a decent set of rocksliders on the zook she would have gone straight over

Not her fault. The advertising board shows that Cornwall Hardware is to the left. She probably took a "short left", as they say!

It takes very special skills to get a Suzuki stuck like that!

Haha, I was thinking this very thing in traffic this morning!

We all drive big 4x4s, some bigger than others, and when people drive badly around us the urge is often there to, well, drive over them. And I was wandering if anyone on the forum has ever driven over a car before. Not necessarily in traffic, maybe a scrap car or something...

But here I have the answer

Rumour has it that Merrem attended one of Herman's 4x4 training courses last weekend. Apparently Herman had to tel her repeatedly that "You can do anything if you just give enough gas and really concentrate on the correct line" as she was a little afraid to offroad with her Suzi. Well done Herman! Look at her achievement just one week later! If it was a Hilux she would propably have been watching days of our lives at home without worrying about the Merc sign stuck underneath her car.

Guys. The chick on the phone owns the Merc. The driver of the Suzuki was an American tourist out here visiting her sister (whose car it is). She apparently got confused between the throttle and the brake.
