UPDATED: We’ve seen it all too often, someone gets their hands on a car that has more power than they can handle, and they try to show off. This time, the car owner was not only lacking control of his car, but he was allegedly drunk, as well, making for a losing combination.

The before picture. Too much money, not enough common sense.

At the yearly Cruisin’ for a Cure car show at the Orange County Fairgrounds in California, a Hellcat Challenger owner decided the back parking lot was the place to show off. Witnesses said that he was likely going over 80 mph and lost control of his car as it began to slide out of control. When it finally gained traction, it launched towards a beautiful, parked 1964 Chevrolet Biscayne and collided with it, spinning it around a couple of times and destroying the Chevrolet.

Both airbags on the Hellcat were deployed, and fortunately nobody was injured in the accident. It’s a shame that someone can get their hands on a car like this and ruin the day for others. To think what could have happened had he hit any number of people still on the property, socializing under EZ-Ups or at their vehicle.

UPDATE: The owner of the beautiful Biscayne, Todd Huetinck, contacted us and shared some pictures of his car, both from when he bought it 16 years ago and 15 minutes before the drunk Hellcat owner wrecked it. The Biscayne was Todd’s first car, and it’s truly a shame to see that a drunken fool destroyed all the hard work he put into the car.

Huetinck told us, “I’m glad no one was hurt or killed,” showing that he’s definitely a class act. Facebook comments of this incident paint a much different picture by other enthusiasts who would have been livid if it was their own car that was wrecked like this.

Top: The aftermath of too much money, too much booze, and not enough brain cells.
Bottom: What a shame for the owner of the Biscayne to come out to his car and see this. The owner of the Hellcat was arrested afterwards.

There is a time and a place for this type of driving, neither of which would have been suitable for this Hellcat owner. Police arrived on the scene and arrested the car owner for DUI and reckless driving. Please people, don’t ruin car shows and cruises for everyone else just because you *think* you can handle the power. Save it for a racetrack, not the parking lot.
