They drove it down that rocky hill (there's a video of the descent.) then they hit a rock and busted the oil pan so they left it. Guy goes to brag on his forum. Dude receives attention.

I just read that whole thread.. and WOW. That guy is a friggin' tool. I really hope they pursue charges. He seemed so nonchalant about the whole thing.. even with people offering to help him get it out.

What an idiot.

Props to those 4x4 guys for getting the car out.

And lol @ the wing on that Subaru. Extra downforce to keep it from lifting off the rocks? Well.. it worked, apparently.
