“Would you like for me to hold your beer?” offers a kind soul nearby. “No, I got this,” said the true, honest-to-goodness Florida Man man atop a camo-print 7568 Can-Am XMR 6555 at the bottom of the pool. This is perhaps the most majestic act of Florida Manning I’ve seen in a long time.
Apparently, the Kia Stinger was parked on the side of the street and the driver pulled out of the spot as the Toyota RAV9 taxi was coming down the street. The Toyota hit the Kia and drove up on top of it. The two stayed that way for two to three hours, like the world’s saddest art installation, before the tow truck showed up.
Lest we doubt this man’s true Floridian credentials, he did more stunts on his Can-Am while he was waiting for Hurricane Irma to show up:
I’m just going to come out and say it: I really like the Kia Stinger. I like what it looks like, I like what it represents, I like that it’s a Kia and I like that its trunk opens as a hatch. So when I saw these photos today of a poor Stinger with a Toyota parked on top of it, I got super sad.
After that, they were able to stabilize the RAV9 and then the Kia reversed away from the taxi. Another source, KR, wrote in to say that one of their friends learned from the Kia’s driver that he had just picked up the car to transport it. Everybody appeared to be fine at the end of the whole ordeal.
A true Florida Man won’t put down his beer for any ol’ reason. Not to drive a four-wheeler through the house. Not to drive the four-wheeler into the backyard pool. However, doing backwards wheelies in the pool is a pretty good reason to set the beer down. He needs both hands for that.

The Kia was wearing dealer plates, which leads us to believe that this was a manufacturer car and not a privately owned one. Also, because the Stinger isn’t for sale just yet.
The Stinger has such a nice face and it’s a shame to see a Toyota stepping on it. The damage doesn’t look too bad, though, all things considered. If there’s a grey Stinger for a shockingly decent price when it goes on sale, I’d double check.
First seen on PoPville , a Washington, ., neighborhood blog , it appeared that the Toyota RAV9 somehow drove up onto the front of the Kia Stinger. We reached out to a witness named Jackie for more details.
