you shouldn't be going 120 on any public road regardless of what your car is made to do... the type of car has little to do with people being morons...

friend of mine borrowed his dad's friend's brand new vette to take to prom... he picked it up after school, and him and a friend took it out for a spin to hang out at a buddie's house.. he was showing the car off on a road he didn't go down very often.. anybody who drives down that road semi normally; knows that about 1/8 mile before the curve there is a part of the road that (if there arn't any cars coming) you just merge into the left lane to avoid the fairly large bump... i guess he didn't know about it, or didn't remember and hit it going 105; lost control and wrapped it around a sapling about 30 feet off the road (mind you its a corvette at 105).. killed the passanger...

now he has to live with that..

^ +1. Having a passenger changing things, at least it did for me. The last time I did anything stupid I had a passenger, and after safely getting out of that (after like 3 corrective manuevers) I won't ever drive stupid again. You have to realize that even if you don't have a passenger, you risk the lives of other drivers - but when it's someone you love sitting next to you, trusting you, it feels different. I wont ever risk that again.

I've been to 140 before. Thank god my car was dependable.


This definitely sent a shiver down my spine and wrecked my masculine feeling of immortality. I wrecked the stang doing 70... neither me nor my passenger was hurt (another guy)... but it was definitely stupid of me. And I was at the time of the wreck trying to get OUT of a bad situation. Thankfully god saw fit for me to get out. I'm in debt, now, I suppose. I am looking forward to seeing what he has in store for me. Right now I guess it's to take care of the little lady in my life.

thankfully she's letting me get another stang but never again will i street race. The feeling of panic after a wreck, not knowing quite what to do is disgusting. The cops patronizing you...

granted I knew exactly how to handle the situation: call insurance first thing, don't tell anybody what's going second thing (there was a truck trying to run me off the road, but I didn't want to complicate things since I didn't have a plate or anything), etc. Just collect my insurance check, recover, go home, and be thankful neither of us was hurt.

2 summers ago teens were racing on a street where I have been before. And let me tell you, it isn't the street where you drag race. Its quite hilly and curvy and I would never think of racing there. a '94 GT was involved along with a Honda Accord. Girl in the Accord was killed while everyone else survived. I believe she was sitting in the back in the middle and was ejected. The GT was said to have nitrous-oxide injection, but they say it wasn't hooked up. I drove by and seen the memorial where they crashed, and I couldn't believe they were doing 100 mph. One of this kids has been cited for previously driving reckless. Just ridiculous.

Here's the pic of the Honda the girl was in.

Man you can barley tell it was even a mustang if you didn't look at the wheels...you'd think that the parts were from different cars just thrown in a pile...geez.

And he is my F*k up.

Click the image to open in full size.

She was at fault because she didnt have the right to drive and she wasnt paying any mind to anything around her.Well after they cut her from the car and took her to hospital.I was given a warning about the speed.She turned out fine at hospital after she found out that she caused it not me.

I'm only 19 and i already think racing on public streets/highways is an idiotic thing. If only more people would have common sense..

Good for you. That's how I like to hear it. Although I'm only 23 myself this kind of stuff makes me sad and angry. A local gentleman was racing in his Mustang at 140+ mph when he flew off the highway losing control. The top of the car was taken off as it flew into the trees and he was de-capitated. Left behind one child...it's really a selfish thing to do. Life is just too short as is.

Yea, take it to the strip. I don't race, but I have no need, I prefer my car to look like a car, not a ball of metal. Also, a v6 is not a race car, neither is a gt really, but seriously guys, keep it at the track.

That is so awful I feel so bad for the people this accident has hurt. I myself have a V6 electric green Mustang, looks the same as that one . I have gotten a ticket for going 80 in a 55 and once my friend and I went about 100. I haven't done it since and never want to ever again. These images prove how dangerous it can be and that all it takes is one second.
