Just saw a BA getting towed

Saw my first BA getting towed down margaret street in the city today....I was cut!

it was a burgundy futura.

Anyone seen any other BA's having the driving done for them?

I have seen a BA looking tatty already.. scrapes and dents all over it. Whoever owned ( I suspect it was a company car) deserved to have a $1000 corolla instead of a nice car like that.

As for towing.. they are cars... some will break down ....

Nope - the owners were standing outside, car had the hazard lights on and the towy was connecting it to the winch...plus they were in the middle of a busy city street...

Makes you wonder deosnt it? A lot of us would work our butts off to own a BA that we perceive as the car of our dreams, only to see some idiot, who would be just as happy in a Daewoo Matiz, back one into a freakin' power pole!!

Makes me sad :sad:
