Everyone has been upset with their parents at one time or another, but few actually engage in retaliation. YouTube user Dom Tracy was creating a video and accidentally caught his brother in the act of attacking a defenseless Fox Mustang with an aluminum bat.
According to Dom, his brother and his father had been fighting over the course of week and then things went a little bit too far. As Dom introduces the video, he adds that his brother had been threatening to do something and it appears that he made good on his threat.
Although, the title of the video includes the phrase “not clickbait,” there is no way definitive way to prove whether or not this is a hoax. Regardless of the whether or not this is fact, the simple idea of trashing a car with a bat seems a bit senseless.
Dom captures the destruction of the windshield and cowl, and once his father opens the door it possible to see the glass covered interior. The incredibly clean cloth interior is coated with a fine layer of glass shards some of which, even traveled all the way to the backseat.
Dom’s father remain eerily calm as he views the damage; perhaps this is part of the script (if this is a work of fiction) or that his father truly has the patience of a saint. Either way, something or someone caused damage to blue Fox. Fortunately, it can be repaired, but trying to match the paint will require some extra effort. More importantly, let’s hope that things can be repaired within the family if this turns out to not to be fiction.
Based on some the comments posted to this video, there are certain Internet detectives that claim all of the destruction was caused by an aftermarket hood flying open. While this does seem to be in the realm of reason cause for the damage, it seems like the edge of the hood might have sustained some visible damage if it did fly open. Fiberglas is not the strongest material in the world, and based on the damage to the windshield, one would expect to see some additional flaws other a chip in the paint.
