According to the person who posted this pic, the driver of this Camaro SS wanted to celebrate his day-old car purchase by doing a burnout. Quickly followed by losing control, crashing, and getting arrested.

We can't verify the story, but the photo of the vehicle in what's supposed to be Riley's Bakery seems legit. Seriously, stop destroying these.

Well......another one bites the dust! It is such a shame. Lack of common sense and 400 some odd horsepower don't mix well. I am sure we'll see more of this happening in the near future. There is a lot to be said about driving skills and attitudes exhibited in our current society. People don't realize that vehicles are potential rolling timebombs, and the driver behind the wheel is either the safety mechanism, or the trigger. I am a strong supporter of anyone buying and owning a high performance vehicles taking a performance driving class. So much can be learned, and they'll respect the full capabilities of their vehicles afterwards.

Again, we do not know the whole story ;)
True, but looking at the photo, I would agree with caption. The Camaro has plowed into, what looks like an office building with an adjacent parking lot. I would assume this driver was not only doing a burnout, but may have been attempting to do a donut and lost it. By the photo, it looks like this took place at night, more than likely the parking lot was empty and the business was closed. The end result is a wrecked Camaro, and a damaged building.

If someone has the rest of the story, please post it!

Assumptions are great but just that.
While I do not know the story, was it the drivers fault? Was there something else going on to cause it? We don't know yet ;)

Everyone knows that the proper way to do a burnout is to shut off the traction control first, then adjust your IPOD, text your girlfriend, push the clutch all the way in, pick up your twenty ounce coffee, floor the gas peddle, take a bite of your doughnut while popping the clutch while looking at your reflection in the bakery's window to see how really kewl that you look in your new 400+hp SS. Oh yes, and any cop that would arrest this moron must be a real Pr*ck.

The comments are overflowing with redneck stereotypes, especially this gem from "Tonyola" who fancies himself a paragon of creative writing:
10:14 AM

Fate can be unkind to those in the current blush of glamor and fame, but it's also inescapable. Most of these new Camaros are going to end up in 2020 as being primer-ed, bondo-ed, and sitting on blocks in rural yards across the land. Those that are driveable will also have primer and bondo, but will also have the virtues of a Playboy tag hanging from the mirror, pissing Calvins on the windows, illegally-downloaded Lynyrd Skynyrd mp3s, empty bottles of Colt 45 on the rear floor, and a bad-complexioned, mulleted high school kid with a wispy mustache, pregnant girlfriend, and a pack of Marlboros for a pilot.
There sure is a lot of Camaro hate out there on the interwebs!

Most of your comment is humorous, except for the cop being a real Pr*ck. :lol:

As for as the Cop is concerned, for the arrest to be made, the driver had to violate some state statute, or local ordinance. Evidence that the Camaro in into the side of the building would be very indicative of wreckless driving! At a minimum he should be arrested for "Camaro abuse". ;)

By now, we know the rest of the story. I guess I was somewhat lucky with my assumptions. The alcohol thing was in the back of my mind, but it squarely goes in my "lack of common sense" category. That combined with lots of horspower equals devastating results. One less new Camaro on the road. Looks like a total to me. If it is repairable, not one I would want to touch. Only four days old! So sad! :(

How stupid can you be to drive drunk with a brand new car.
