Some people are just pathological. At first, it was amusing that Fresh C280, a member of the MDStreetScene forums, would claim to own a Mercedes CLS55 AMG. How a 19-year-old affords a car that normally retails for around $100,000 is the first thing that made everyone on the forum suspicious. A story about a digital camera becoming a sewage buoy was also an immediate head scratcher, since the pic he posted supposedly came from said camera. Further cementing the obvious dementia was the claim that the picture was taken during a dyno run in New York. It could be New York, except right now it's chilly early spring in the Empire State, and the dyno run picture clearly shows garage bays with the doors flung open and leaves on trees. It gets better as it becomes clear how many balls this kid's trying to juggle to hold up his story. There's a nice little synopsis that debunks the girlfriend angle – even though it's supposedly her car.

It didn't take long for total pwnage to occur when Fresh C280s fellow Maryland car enthusiasts did a little detective work. The car is actually owned by a CarDomain member named Xavier, who hails from Florida and showed up with proof of ownership around 30 pages in. All of the pictures posted to the MDStreetScene bulletin board were stolen from the actual owner's CarDomain page. This is weirder than the guy who thought up direct exhaust injection. The makings of a character study are all there – apparent delusional schizophrenia, a longing to be somebody, a sad little existence, and completely self-inflicted massive public humiliation. There's even a cameo by a famous lolcat. It doesn't get better than this, folks, the thread is only a day old so far. Check it out for yourself, it gets good around page 6. Oh, and Fresh C280's quote at the bottom of his posts is oddly prescient. Thanks for the tip, Terry!

      Sigh. Internet culture is sad sometimes.

      I like a fun post like this every once in a while. Much more fun than comparing gains and losses between all the car manufaturers each month...

      ...or another post about a "special edition" Mustang.

      Agreed on all the coments above. I would expect to find this on sites like digg under: Kid claims being the owner of an AMG, get's totally pwn3d yo! category.

      Bring on the real automotive news please.

      I agree with Ben, however amusing it is. Is it slow today?

      Glad to see a liar caught but in all due seriousness I live in Romania,Bucharest and I gave you my word that I know a 19 years old kid that actually DOES own a Mercedes CLS 55 AMG.He never worked a day in his life,but it is quite common for the got-wealthy-over-the-night famillies to buy their kids this kind of presents to show their stature.CLS 55 AMG isn't even the most expenisve you can see a 19 years old drive,there are also R8s,Gallardos and so on and so forth

      Sweet, a chance to use my new fav word.

      What a douchecanoe.
      • 6 Years Ago
      i usually dont mind the odd news on this site, but this one is definitely not news. sorry :( i still love autoblog though!
      • 6 Years Ago
      It's quite simple... anyone who use "LOL" or "LMAO" is a minor...
        • 6 Years Ago
        Wrong. But the way in which he used them does.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Have we (more likely digg or someone) crashed the site?
        • 6 Years Ago
        It would seem so. When I was looking at it (I only got to page 2 before it crashed) there were 3 members and 143 guests viewing the page. There is a message about it up now.

      ok, I give up, what are these phrases I see more and more often these days:

      "pwned"

      "pwnage"

      sorry, guess I really am older than I'd like to think
        • 6 Years Ago
        It's a very very stupid/retarded typo since P key is next to O key. In other words, they are meant to be "owned", not "pwned". So minors like to use them to feel like they know "internet" culture.

        Just don't do typo.

      You guys broke the server.

      This is a blog people, not CNN or Foxnews (thank god for that). A blogger can post for whatever he finds amusing. If you don't like the particular post, just scroll right on by.

        The headline was pretty indicative of the story, and if you didn't think it was interesting, then don't read it. I think its funny...Thanks for the post.
