Speeding in a Model T Ford?

A Coventry motorist has been fined for speeding in an 86-year-old Model T Ford without a speedometer.

A speed camera caught Dave Stanisfield, 67, doing 35mph in a 30mph zone on his way home from a vintage car show, reports the Daily Telegraph.

That puddle? It’s twelve feet deep, dude.

A Ukranian driver already having a bad day – having taken a wrong turn onto a highway – found it getting a lot worse when he gingerly crept over a water-filled pothole, only to discover it was a 12-foot deep crater…

The driver had to smash his rear window and scramble out to the top to avoid a muddy end, before waiting for workmen to come and rescue his car.

An Atlanta crook, who must surely have been an apprentice in the bank robbing business, stole an excavator (think backhoe but stronger) from a construction sit and trundled down the street with it to a nearby bank where he proceeded to bash in the roof and rip off the doors before the cops got there. He ran but was caught after a short chase.
