If you think you had a bad day at the office, check out the misfortune of one delivery truck driver who accidentally backed into a $300,000 Ferrari FF on Columbus Avenue in New York City on Oct. 30. The driver of the Baldor Foods, Inc. truck told bystanders he “didn’t see nothing” as he put the truck in reverse, crushing the hood

I wonder what the deductible on the truck's policy is.

If I had a car worth that much, I would never even think of driving it in the city.

It would be funnier, in a sad way, if the guy had been in one of those storefronts trying to buy insurance.

What exactly makes that a $300,000 car? Well, I guess if I have to ask...I’d never know.

I drove through NYC about a dozen times. Never stopped once.

I did stop in Iowa for a game of pool while driving (almost) non stop from Cleveland, OH to Billings, MT but that’s a different story.

What’s not to like? And, as an added bonus, it will probably give some non-union blue collar guys a payday at the body shop.

It is impossible to drive through NYC without stopping unless you are talking about the expressways and stopping only for tolls and/or traffic jams.

It may be a better car than anything I own, but it still looks gay. An Audi R8 at least looks like sex on wheels.

Looks like the front end really grips the road but not much clearance for the front tires...

Are parking spots so expensive that they try to park double deck to save money? ;>}

(Calgary apparently has the most expensive city core parking in Canada, second in North America.)

That little yellow shield on the side. You know, the same reason that little green alligator makes a $15 polo shirt worth $100.

Other than that, it’s a Fiat. I wonder if they’ve discovered electricity yet in Italy (or manufacturing with interchangable parts). :-)

I lived in Manhattan until I was 30.

The Ferrari driver is obviously an out-of-towner. You never, never. NEVER get into the blind spot of a truck with a lift gate. And on Columbus Avenue, no less.

Well, so it goes. As you say, it’ll buff out. And if not? Fughedaboutit.

Inflation and too many rich folks trying to "one-up" their neighbors.

FWIW, back in 1971 the Ferrari 275 GBT/4 was $14,700, or so I was told by the owner.

Inflation Calculator

"What cost $14,700 in 1971 would cost $82,200 in 2012."

308s are ok, but the 512 Berlinetta Boxer was way cooler.

Okay, let me clarify: I never got off expressway and got out of the car. I stopped plenty of times.

I want one. I wonder if it comes with an Alfa Romeo trailer hitch cover or if you have to buy one of them fancy third-party ones from JC Whitney...
