Ever wonder what can happen when you hand the keys over to a valet parker?

There was, of course, the infamous scene in Ferris Bueller when the valet took the boys' borrowed Porsche for a joy-ride.

Well, guests at the Epic Hotel in Miami may now thinking once or twice before handing the keys over.

Conflicting reports state that a Maserati was at fault after speeding out of a parking garage, not the valet. Either way, the Porsche that was totaled is one of only 76,000 that remain in the world, making it difficult to replace.

So who is responsible for an accident caused by a valet parker? Legal experts say it depends. Check your own auto insurance policy to make sure it covers other drivers. The hotel, in this case, may be liable, but not if the owner hurriedly signed a waiver absolving the hotel of responsibility for damage.

      I wasn't even aware of the existence of penny auctions until about 6 weeks ago. Now I can't imagine buying anything other than food or clothing anyplace else. My favorite is at ( http://tinyurl.com/TopBargains ) It took me a few days to figure out how to bid but now I am savings big bucks there. How they can sell iPads, Macbooks, HDTVs, Digital Cameras, Gaming Consoles, and more for steep discounts of 75%, 80%, or even 85% off retail price, I don't know. I do know that I bought my son an iPad there for less than $100 and my husband a $250 Lowe's gift card for $48. Why would I shop anyplace else?

      Don't remember where I read it, but supposedly Ferris Bueller drove a Ferrari in the movie. :)

      One of 76,000...rare? That has to be a mis-print. Possibly original production in the 1950's , not what's estimated in service? Still, a beautiful car...looking like a mess.
