    Seinfeld's '73 RSR damaged

    Poor Jerry... Watched it happen and couldn't do a thing about it. If this was a classic Ferrari the folks on Fchat would be demanding the serial number and debating how much the resale value was affected. Smiley

     

    (From MSN)

    The funnyman was drinking coffee with a pal on a street bench during a vacation in The Hamptons, New York when a BMW driver shunted his parked car.

    The rare 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR suffered damage in the incident in Amagansett, and photographs published in the New York Post show the furious funnyman remonstrating with a female motorist.

    He tells the newspaper, "I was sitting on a bench, having coffee with a friend. My car was parked directly across the street. We then watched as a middle-aged woman in a new, white BMW sedan pulled in front of my car, put her car in reverse and drove straight back into my car, smashing and damaging it.

    "We could hear the sound of metal crunching - rare, classic, expensive, vintage metal, by the way - from across the street. A sickening sound to a car person. And even though I'm sure I deserved this, because of who I am and that I have this amazing car, I was furious. I ran across the street, out of my mind, and yelled at her, 'You just crashed into my car!'

    "Of course, her reply was not, 'Oh, my God, I'm so sorry,' but, 'Well, I couldn't see it.' She didn't seem to understand why I would be upset or how this was in any way her fault. She drove off. She did offer to give me her information, but the idea of having her in my life for one more second was intolerable. I went home and put my head under the covers."

    Don't worry the same will happen on early911registry Smiley but the great and admirable thing about Seinfeld is that he is driving regularly the cars from his wonderful collection .


    Re: Seinfeld's '73 RSR damaged

    The reaction of that woman is typical over here in Germany too: A friend stopped at a red light in his Lamborghini Gallardo he just purchased recently, a brand-new car at a substantial discount because of the new Huracan introduction. The car had only 700 km on it when a woman crashed into his rear at the stop light. When he got out of the car, the woman got out too and the first thing she said was: "There isn't much damage". No sorry, no apology, nothing. The damage on his car is close to 9k EUR btw....not much damage.  mail People do not have manners anymore, that woman was around 30 or 35 years old. My friend was so p.ss.d that he even told the arriving police officers that he saw that woman with her phone in her hand when she got out of the car. Now the police is investigating if she was talking on the phone when it happened, they have asked her for her phone (didn't even know this is possible). If they "catch" her, she won't only be fined for the accident but she will get in serious trouble. My friend couldn't be happier because she didn't apologize. I understand him very well.

    Reminds me of the excellent scene in Snatch when Tyrone reverses into a truck Smiley

    Vince: "It's a 4-ton truck Tyrone, it's not as if it's a bag of fuckin peanuts, now is it?"
     
    Tyrone: "It was at a funny angle."
     
    Vince: "It's behind you Tyrone, when you back up, things come from behind ya."

    Snatch is one of my all time favorites!!  The dog with the squeeky toy stuck in his throat is priceless.  To this day I call my dog a dag.  They will fix jerry's car like new!  Not like there are no parts left.  It may make it more valuable... if he does not want it any longer he should give me a call.
