Feeling Sorry for teenage boy, nice old Cadillac...

Recommended Posts

My son Joel has a really cool friend Paul who is 16 and learning how to drive. Paul's dad has a nice older Cadillac (similar to Sixty-Eights bannana boat). Paul was pulling into his parent's attached garage, being coached by his father. His father said "now hit the brakes gently." Instead of hitting the brakes Paul hit the gas by mistake.

While people may debate the fuel economy and such of old caddies, one thing is for sure...they are just the cat's ass when it comes to destroying drywall and 2x4 studs. The car lurched forward, through the garage wall and into the living room.

About six grand worth of damage to the house and a similar amount to the car. While it is really kind of funny, I feel bad for Paul who is about the nicest teenage boy you'd ever want to meet.

Thankfully the insurance company is fixing both the car and the house and no one was hurt. Pauls dad was understanding, although rather upset. Hopefully Paul won't be scared to get back behind the wheel.

sounds like a video i saw on break.com, 14 yr old kid hops in dads brand new shelby and turns it on... through the garage wall.

its scary but at least the only things hurt in the case you speak of were the replacible things.

OH my goodness....very sorry that happened to him....

Has he gotten behind the wheel again yet?

Hmmm...reminds me of a cell phone commercial. Kid attempts to back up the family car, but instead crashed into the garage, knocking down the garage door and things stored in said the garage. The Dad looks out toward the garage and asks, "10 calls in one DAY??!?!!?"
