Seinfeld -- Flippin' Fiat Not Funny

4/3/2008 7:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Maybe Jerry Seinfeld should think about driving a car that was made this century: He just survived a horrific crash when one of his 1967 Fiat's brakes failed.

The New York Post reports that Seinfeld was driving alone when his brakes failed and he had to swerve to avoid the intersection – that's when the car flipped on the passenger side, the roof, and then the driver's side. Miraculously, the funnyman wasn't hurt.

And, then, inevitably, the joke: "Because I know there are kids out there, I want to make sure they all know that driving without braking is not something I recommend, unless you have professional clown training or a comedy background, as I do."

Heath's Alleged Ex-Lover – He's Not Daddy


Heath Ledger's uncle says the late actor has a love child, but the woman with whom Heath had the alleged child says no way – and her hubby says she's willing to back it up with a DNA test.

The woman, unidentified to protect her daughter, tells the UK's Daily Mail that "there's no proof, there's no nothing" to suggest that Heath is the dad. "The simple thing is we will do a DNA test," says the little girl's step-dad, who adds that the family has "nothing to hide."

Heath's estranged uncle had blabbed to Oz's Daily Telegraph about Heath's having a love child when he was 17.

Party 'till you die!    

No the vultures come out of the woodwork. But it would be a rough sort of way for a child to be brought up ( if there is one).

I thought that Heath's love child story was bull. No way the mother would have stayed quiet so long after Heath started making money if it was true. Heath's uncles just want to jump on the gravy train. They probably expected Kim to buy them off to make them shut up. I'm glad they're being shown up for the lying SOBs they are.

I'm sorry Jerry totaled his Fiat but TMZ it's ridiculous to say its because it's from 1967. Any model from any year can have its brakes fail and get into an accident. At least nobody got hurt.

these uncles will spew anything to get their name and trash in the press ,and their 15 mins are long over, it's bad enough the media exploited him, no wonder the uncles were estranged, they seem to be the ones out for the $ selling any lie they can come up with just to see their name in the media.

me:
what an idiot you are about cars. A simple google would have told you that the 1967 Fiat 850 came in several bodies but the smallest was an 817cc straight 4 with 34 hp and a top speed of 125mph. Don't know exactly which model he had and it also depends on whether his was the american or european version but still reductio ad absurdem is not your best style.

I am really glad Jerry is ok. The sarcastic side of me thinks if he could have worn the "PUFFY" shirt, that could have replaced the lack of air bag in that year and model.

Ugh Heath's uncle just needs to stfu -- his dad should get some sort of gag order since obviously this tool can't keep his gums from flapping.
