    I'm always mystified on how the F150 ended up sitting on the 360 without actually breaking any drywall on the ceiling. I'd pay good money for Copperfield or Lance Burton to entertain me with a similar feat when I'm in Vegas.

    From the video it looks like the 360 got rear-ended into the Volvo

    It's NOT A VOLVO (referring to the second picture, the one with the red modena)! It's a little cheap Fiat SW called the "Palio" or "Siena", built in Brazil primarily for low-cost markets. It is a very light car (fwd, no mechanical parts at the rear) so it's likely that the F360 will emerge with repairable damage.

    BTW someone I know in Italy (who doesn't want to be named) was driving his F40 at close to 180 mph about 10 years ago on a 3-lane highway, when an old guy pulled out in front of him in an old Fiat sedan. The F40 driver braked like crazy and managed to shave off some speed, but still rear-ended the old Fiat, which ended up on top of the F40 and was subsequently catapulted several feet in the air and ended upside down in a ditch near the highway. The Fiat driver and passenger sustained multiple injuries and many weeks in hospital. The F40 driver was unhurt but his car needed a new front end. He also had to pay the damage money from the civil lawsuit issued by the elderly Fiat driver, and lost his license for a year - the police calculated how fast he was driving from the length of the thick black skid marks he left on the road!

    I have a Volvo.

    I'm going to give the monster-truck thing a try tomorrow on the way to work.

    Wish me luck!
