Wrecking Dad’s car: so, so much worse on video

By Jay Busbee

"Son, I'm going to let you drive my prized Ford Capri Perana. I worship this car."

"I get it, Dad."

"I'm serious. If I had to make a choice between this car and you, it would take me awhile."

"That's not nice, Dad."

"But it's the truth, son. Now. Prove to me that you and my car can co-exist. Or you'll make the choice that much easier."

"Sure thing, Dad! Thanks! You're the best!"

"Now, be careful of the line as you approach the water ... "

"WHAT? CAN'T HEAR YOU! HEY, THIS CAR IS FAST--"

Yeah, uh ... whoops. That's George Miedecke driving his father Andrew's ride straight into the Tasmanian drink at the Targa Wrest Point road rally. Andrew's back injury kept him from running the race himself, so he put his car in the hands of his 24-year-old son ... you can see how it turned out. Apparently, he gave George only two instructions: don't crash, and don't come in second. One out of two ain't bad, right? Right ... ?

Thankfully, both George and his fellow driver were just fine after the dunk. Still unknown is George's fate after his father learned of the news.
