Automotive Journalism Can Hurt – #EpicFail
One of the joys of being and automotive journalist is the test drives. Automotive car-makers lend us vehicles to test. In turn we share with you our thoughts. This is a win-win situation until a car losses a hub cab or worst.
In the spirit of full disclosure while I have never crashed a car, I did cause a dent/scratch on a Chevy Volt. While the damage to the car was not that large, it did cause a huge hole in my ego. I rolled over a large rock or piece of cement that scratched the skirt of the car. My perfect record is now gone. My bragging rights tarnished.
The only thing that saves my soul is that other journalists have done far, far worst.
Take a look.
On a very serious note a few reporters have lost their lives behind the wheel.
One of my favorite journalist, Rich Hammond of the BBC’s Top Gear was lucky to walk away from this.
