Wow!! That's one extremely lucky GC. That car was damaged so badly it was nearly vaporized! So glad and amazed that he survived uninjured.

The list is representative of where I live. Many of the parents buy the teenagers the Camrys and Accords while driving Mercedes, Porsche, BMW, Audi, Lexus, Volvo themselves.

A homeowner near me has two Maseratis, but his kids drive something less expensive.

I was curious as to the value of our Infiniti and how much it would cost to acquire a 2-3 year old Accord. Let me tell you...the Accords are NOT cheap cars and even in Atlanta, it's not very easy to find a V-6 Accord w/ less than 36,000 miles. Apparently, the wealthy folks hold on to them for a while!
