- Earl, a 48-year-old father, wanted his daughter's boyfriend to think he is a cool dad
- The man decided to show off his multimillion sports car during a ride on the highway
- Earl ended up crashing his car and incurring damages worth over N95 million
A dad from New Zealand is guilty of letting his emotions get the better of him after he totalled his car under avoidable circumstances.
Andrew John Earl, who owned a KSh 27 million (N95,484,871.06) replica Ford GT40, wanted to look cool in the eyes of his teenage daughter’s new lover.
According to Otago Daily Times, the dad met with his 16-year-old’s partner while driving a Porsche 911 then gave the young boy a tour of his sports car collection.
The two then left in Earl’s Ford GT40 as the chap attempted to show his daughter’s new catch how powerful his machine was.
While flexing his muscles and trying to look like a chilled out father, the man sped through traffic and swerved into the left lane.
The 48-year-old was attempting to overtake a vehicle that was ahead of him when he lost control and crashed into a barrier.
One of the doors flung off and the whole vehicle was mangled into an unrecognisable wreck.
To make matters worse, Earl had to deal with a KSh 3 million (N10,609,430.12) damage as he had not insured his sports car.
A judge banned the dad from driving for eight months and asked him to pay a fine of KSh 162,000 (N572,909.23).
"It was most definitely not my proudest moment. I am really happy no one got hurt. It could have been worse," Earl said.
