Jezza did it in a Roller, Keith Moon favored a Lincoln Continental, and just last month a Massachusetts mom canonballed her SUV. Driving cars into swimming pools may not have the national attention of say Dancing With the Stars, but it’s a hell of a lot more entertaining. Of course, if you want to participate, and you know you do, then you’re going to need to have the proper tools.
First you’ll need a swimming pool- they’re a lot cleaner and less filled with alligators than swamp bogs and ponds.
Next up, you’ll need enough room to build up sufficient speed so you’ll get some air time. Failing to do so can mean flipping suddenly into the pool and possibly ejecting you out the sunroof, whereupon you’ll most likely land on the diving board – Wiley Coyote style – and then be further sprung into something sharp, probably a cactus patch.
Lastly, you’ll need a vehicle. Now, this is an important consideration because not only do you have to take into account the kind of car you should drive into a pool – based on time to speed, hydrodynamics, and other factors – but also what kind of car you’d want to drive into a pool. You know, what kind of car deserves to catch a wave and then sink ignominiously to the 9-ft depths of the chlorine marine. There are obviously several candidates that come to mind, and I’ll let you in on my little secret- Panamera. I’m not saying anything more, but now you know to keep me away from both your pool and your Porsche. So, let’s say you’re taking this whole car pool thing at face value and are planing trip that ends in a dip, what car would you want to put in the drink?
