Cars and Coffee events around the world used to be civilized car shows that brought auto enthusiasts together in a relaxed environment. Most of the time, they still are but Cars and Coffee events have also become synonymous with crashes in recent years.
You could blame it on the Ford Mustang drivers of the world but for some reason, many attendees of these events think they are driving gods. They get spurred on by excited crowds, have a flow of adrenaline and testosterone and suddenly believe they can perform Ken Block-style drifts while leaving these events. They can’t.
The following clip was filmed at a recent Cars and Coffee event in Pensacola, Florida and surprisingly, doesn’t feature a Ford Mustang smashing into a crowd of people. Instead, it shows an overconfident Subaru BRZ driver getting a little too cocky.
As the driver of the blue BRZ exits the meet and makes a left-hand turn, the driver decides to have a little fun and kick out the tail of the rear-wheel drive sports car. Initially, the driver appears to be in control of the slide but before long, the car violently kicks back the other way and slides directly into a curb and light pole.
We can’t imagine anything worse. Crashing a car is bad but crashing one in a crowd of people while trying to show-off is something else entirely. What’s more, the excited howls and screams from the crowd after the crash only served to rub it in for the driver. It does make for a very funny video though.
