    Saw that on CNN this morning. Do they even train reporters anymore?
    CNN's tag line was "The brother can't drive" WTF?

    Now in your link
    Griffin has appeared in a number of comedies including Undercover Brother, Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo and its sequel Date Movie.
    I've been seeing at least one misspelling a day on important press releases, upgrade notes etc. And since I can't spell, that's pretty bad.

    Maybe he can become a man-whore to raise the cash to get it fixed.

    It's life. It's the movies.

    And I can't tell which is which.

    I can't see how he "totaled" that car.

    Looks to me like the whole front end is messed, but can't that be fixed?
    Seems people are saying the entire 1.5mil car is done for?

    chances are his insurance won't cover the cost of repair, but I imagine the car might be rebuilt, or used for spare parts of other enzo's. The expensive part of the car is in the back and seems to be o.k.

    I think the guy has a fairly clear perspective on the matter, somewhere along the lines of '***** happens'.

    I'm sure he loved the car (I would have), but once it's gone, meh, it's gone.

    As for the wreck, I'd say parts it out except it's one of the few cases in the auto world where the sum of the parts is worth more than the parts themselves.

    what I find strange is teh guy standing behind the cinder block, he doesn't seem fazed at all as the car comes barreling towards him.

    I think the valuation is a bit off as well.

    I've seen used (previously cherished) Enzos available for 400K, so US$800K.

    $1.5m is a stretch.
