Chevy Dealer’s Monster Truck Promo Backfires

From the San Francisco Chronicle:

(Note: Image above is not the actual truck)

A Hilo Chevrolet dealer who tried to crush his Asian auto competition found the stunt a little harder to pull off than expected.

Island Chevrolet general sales manager James Severtson arranged for a Chevrolet Suburban SUV outfitted with massive tires costing $5,000 apiece to drive over a Honda Accord.

On the first attempt Friday, the monster truck blew a hydraulic hose and leaked vital fluid while the Honda remained intact and ready for more.

Surprising? Hardly.

  • Dealer proved that he is an idiot and thats what he was able to do. Accord proved it. I am not a asian car fan. I hate to praise honda but lets face the fact.

  • Surprising? No. Ironic? Beautifully.

  • Haha! It is almost as bad as the commercial “real men don’t eat sushi.” I like sushi and I wouldn’t mind to own a Lexus.
