Dude Wins Lamborghini And Crashes It Six Hours Later

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Utah man who won a $380,000 Lamborghini Murcielago in a contest said he crashed the car about 6 hours after taking the keys.

David Dopp of Santaquin was announced as the winner of the Maverick gas station`s `Joe Schmo to Lambo` contest during halftime of the Brigham Young University football game Nov. 12."



David Dopp may be lucky, but he`s not the sharpest knife in the cabinet. A person who has no experience driving a Lamborghini should never have taken it for a spin when there was black ice on the ground.

A "Joe Schmo" doesn`t have the money to maintain a luxury car, Dopp should never have got behind the wheel. Any person with a modicum of commonsense would have immediately sold the $300,00 vehicle.

Dopp said the car is in a body shop. "That`s what insurance is for, he said. A millionaire can afford to be cavalier about wrecking a Lamborghini, a "Joe Schmo" can`t. Dude, wake up and smell the coffee, sell the damn thing and buy a Jeep Cherokee.
