Default Newb Porsche Owner Fail!

So I wake up this morning and my wife was leaving for work. I walk out front to grab a smoke and see something that made me feel like I got kicked in the *****. I jump on my mountain bike to ride over there and my wife freaks out
Wife: you cant leave the kids here alone
Me: It will be 2 min
Wife: Why do you care? Its not your car and you don't know them.
Me: I'm a car guy, its my duty...


So I ride over there and say whats up. The guy said he just bought it and was trailering it home.

Me: Don't mean to be nosey but you might not want to tie it down to the body.
Him: Why what will happen?
Me: Your going to sand paper the paint off and if its tight enough to even do anything your going to crush the fenders.
Him: I thank you for the advice but Id rather ruin the body then bend a wheel or axel.
Me: lol ok then later guys

So I guess I had him worried because he called his buddy to come over and take a look. His friend gets out and says looks good to me...lol When I was talking to him his Dad even told him, Oh yeah I see this guy towing his race cars all the time. I can't believe he thinks this is ok...

Please, go back, and edit that post, capitalizing that first person pronoun.

What an idiot and it looks like his tow vehicle could use beefier suspension.

Holy crap. I wouldn't consider doing that to my $3K 15 year old Miata let alone a nice car. Unbelievable. Hope the doucher really cranked down on those ratcheting straps for good measure.

Not completely clear, did the guy buy it from a neighbor or did a neighbor buy it?

If I was selling that car and the guy started throwing straps over it like that I might just recind the deal and tear up his check. (unless it was a piece of crap I just screwed him over on)

Jesus Christ, you aren't strapping down a piece of equipment with chains and binders, it's a Porsche with thin sheet metal body work. What retard would be scared of "bending a wheel or axle" from strapping it down like a normal person? This one I guess.

Some people use brains to get money

Their children have enough money, that they never have to develop brains.

Me too. Maybe a black or silver, though red has always been my color of choice. I've been around tons of these but have never gotten the chance to drive one. One day... one day. When I think sports car, a 911 is typically the first thing to pop into my head. One of my dream cars since I will little.
