A 17-year-old new driver rolled his car on May 10 on Bonnyton Road between Monikie and Forfar. Escaping unscathed he was unprepared for the resourceful lesson his father would teach him.
The teen rolled the vehicle after taking a corner too fast near his home in Monifieth.
His father, who had bought the car for his son, posted an embarrassing Gumtree advert offering the wrecked vehicle for 1p, stating: “I now have a 2000 Honda Civic 1.4 breaking for spares.”
Disappointed father Stuart Clark said: “He talked the talk, but certainly didn’t walk the walk (he will be walking now, for a long time). If only all roads were straight, we as parents wouldn’t have to worry about our over enthusiastic sons.”
Mr Clark finished the amusing ad with a surprise addition: “Included in anything you may buy! One FOC [free of charge] 17-year-old boy, complete with black eye – not from accident, administered by myself!”
