A lottery winner in the U.K. tried to drive through a flooded road but miscalculated the level of water and ended up stranded when his Bentley got three feet deep.
Robert Johnson was on his way to a business meeting when the incident happened. Just a few days after the car was rescued and declared a complete loss, he went out and bought himself a spanking new Mercedes-Benz.
''I don't know what all the fuss is about, it's just a flooded Bentley,'' he said. ''I've gone out and got a new car. Job done.''
Here, multimillion-dollar homes and Mercedes-Benz vehicles are as common as dandelions on your lawn. When I stopped at a golf club to take pictures of the Kia K900, one member asked if it really was a Kia because it looked like his first BMW 750iL. Another member (this one female) asked what it was, as she thought she might like one.
