• How NOT to deliver an Aston Martin

We’re opening our 2009 list with "how not to do" things with a failed delivery of an Aston Martin V8 Vantage. We were originally going to blame this $120,000 mistake on a delivery driver trying to pull a Knight Rider and by making a flying dash out of the back of an tractor-trailer, but it may not be that simple.

The pic also show a crucial piece of the truck’s elevator on the ground, suggesting a ramp failure. Morals of the story: always check your equipment and drive your new car home yourself.

i don’t think it was an equipment failure. the ramp on the ground is the one ramp that is used for both levels of storage. the car deck should have been lowered to meet the part that’s already on the ground.
