Sherman Holland had a bad day on Monday. He went cruising in his 1967 Camaro around the Pembroke Pines suburb of Miami, Florida only to lose the handle on the car and plop it directly into a swimming pool. Sadly, that pool is owned by a couple who had their property wrecked and rebuilt about five years ago due to a hurricane. This time it was a 60 year old man allegedly going 65 in a 30 mph zone. Thankfully, Holland was able to escape his Camaro as it headed for Davy Jones’ locker….errr…the deep end of the pool.
We’ve known guys who have had to fill out some pretty hilarious accident reports, but never anything involving the total submersion of their classic car into someone’s swimming pool. The towing/recovery bill alone for that trip is going to be over $10,000. Holland will be lucky to ever get car insurance again, perhaps boating will be more his speed?
From what we have seen of the Camaro it has Weld Draglite wheels, slapper bars, and an old school square snorkel hood scoop. The length of the driver’s mullet was not released to the media, so we cannot accurately report on that. Holland was cited for reckless driving by local police for obvious reasons…he took a pretty swervy path to the pool. If it had been a straight shot he may have walked away without a fine. We jest.
Not surprisingly, the car looks pretty jacked up.
