    I've never seen this show before but I was cutting beer can chicken in the kitchen when I heard the magic F word on the TV, and when I went in, some kid had stolen a yellow Daytona and lost the brakes and intentionally hit a fire truck. Why do they do this to us?

    I'm sure it is, but still stings...I don't understand why tv just can't show a Ferrari without having to wreck it...

    They are expensive items. Show a Louis Vuitton handbag going through a meat grinder would have the same effect for some people.

    It’s good that a 60s Ferrari is still perceived as valuable enough to kids that wrecking one (a replica) will have an effect on a show. Did they show any Ferrari emblems? They would get sued if so.

    I’m more interested by the idea of beer can chicken. Sounds great!

    You can barely see one in the pic, I don't remember if they showed the steering wheel or not...The chicken was a success...

    I think he meant the Weber. I’ve never seen a “GS 4” on a (real) Daytona, let alone six of them.

    Bwahahah...

    But seriously, of course it was a replica, I was well aware of that when I saw the show but the concept is the same.... kinda ridiculous it was moved to the replica forum.
