He’s rev faced! Embarrassed motorist crashes perfectly restored 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle into a brick wall moments after leaving classic car show and trying to impress onlookers with its acceleration

  • The crash happened on Sunday after the Classic Car and Bike Show in Doncaster
  • The driver of the burgundy Chevy accelerated hard and lost control of the car
  • Fortunately nobody was hurt but the vintage motor was badly damaged

Probably should have stayed with the Austin Mini.

He wasn't pointed down the street completely straight and he got out of it way too hard when he started to get out of shape.

My guess is he's not used to American big block power.

 A cruise in I go to has a no burn out rule and this year we had a similar incident. Cobra replicar impressed everybody  by driving into a tree.  To make matters worse  it supposedly wasn't his car, but a friends. Now that is even stupider.   :)   Sorry but I have little sympathy for this type car enthusiast.

 When I see cars burning out like this, I feel embarrassed, thinking that someone driving by would think that I would have something to do with this.

 

 Too bad that there was not a cop on the scene.

Another big shot trying to impress people. Well he certainly "IMPRESSED " that car into the wall well enough. Sarcasm on the 4th of July . Poor car.

Will the guy who was driving the car ever live this moment down? NEVER. Looks like it happened in England? Can you imagine the names he will be called from now on at any pub or car meets/rallys  he attends? His new names will be Well deserved .

I am sure he will include the video with his insurance claim.

That was in the UK. Probably disoriented by the left hand drive.

 

Or was he just making his Brexit?

From the official BBC report in London:

Friday morning Mr Wrenchy was over heard telling a neighbor friend that he "couldn't wait to show everyone at the show Sunday what it will do once it's finished". 

 

His mechanic was reported as telling him Saturday afternoon:

"Since your blower is bigger than your windshield you might want to try it out on a dragstrip before you take it to Doncaster…."

 

Due to the outcome of this particular incident it's unclear if Mr Wrenchy is working with a full bag of spanners. Sunday evening his mum was even over heard saying "that's me Wrenchy, he's always been a bit of a daft cow"

More horsepower than brains. What if there had been people walking down that sidewalk? There could have been  families leaving the show with strollers and children. I feel worse for that beautiful brick wall that the jerk destroyed, it probably stood for decades before "Mr. Horsepower" came along.

I suspect he didn't check his air pressure.

That will throw a car sideways like that.

I have been on this Forum since 2006. If all the posts containing "his mechanic" or "my mechanic" were available in book form it would be a best seller, probably a hit movie.

Would that be a few broken bricks from the wall he hit?   😁😉

No, actually the car itself is the best trophy from this event.
