    It's a long story so here goes:

    I just picked up my car from the shop. I had my ford 9" moser rear installed and the stage vi rpm transmission with 3600 stall converter, and all the ls6 goodies, ported 243 heads, cam, headers, full bolt ons, hotchkis/koni da, bmr torque arm, etc...etc...too much shit to list. The car was literally just completed. The only thing that i was waiting on was to have the DOT Legal drag radials to come in so that I could get them on. The rubber I had on was bald. The car had about 485 horses.

    I was driving to the gym when some asshat in a mustang pulled up and tried to race me. I blew his doors off. I went by him like he wasn't even moving. Then, the road curved a little and I eased off the accelarator and had to tap my brake a little to try and slow down but due to the bald tires the rear end lost traction (I had ASR turned off as most of us do). So I was spun around 180 degrees and heading toward the sidewalk ass first.

    The car jumped the curb made toothpicks out of a huge commercial real estate for sale sign. I mean I just decimated it like it wasn't even there. The car kept moving (I was at around 120mph when I first lost traction). I then hit a tree on the rear passenger side, spun around, did a flip, hit another tree, spun around and came to a sliding stop at the slow lane. The first impact literally felt like an IED went off next to my car. It was that loud and violent. It was like in slow motion too. Lucky I had the T-tops off cause the glass would have gotten all over me. There was debris everywhere and my car was done.

    I was fine. The only thing I had was a minor muscle tear on my right thigh/hip area from the damn seatbelt buckle (I didn't even notice it till the next day). My hip area swelled about 6 inches. I jumped out the top of the car and cleaned the debris before the cops got there.

    When the PD guys arrived, they were amazed that there wasn't a fatality. They were like where's the driver? I said that's me and they could not believe it. They said I was pretty lucky.

    I know I was! So...the moral of the story...leave the racing to the track. I learned a pretty expensive lesson. I lost about $30K between the car, all the go fast parts, dyno tuning and install. Not to mention the 2 points for reckless driving on my record. The fine would have been in the thousands but I train the PD here and I have some friends in the system that helped me with my case so I only ended up paying a few hundred dollar fine. Its definitely not worth it.

    You guys better think twice before racing on the street. I will never race on the street again, that's for damn sure!

    Told you guys it was a long story!
    Man, God was with ya. You are still here and ONLY got two points. THAT IS DAMN LUCKY.

    The guy I traded with was a real cool. CHP officer too. He wanted a change. I was happy to oblige.

    Now I have my LS1 again! When I clean her up some more, I will post pics of the new ride.

    Also, I would like to thank everyone for the support and kind words even though what I did was pretty stupid. I appreciate y'all very much and am glad to be on here again...permanent this time. Thanks again guys!!

    Man you were blessed! I don't know why the insurance companies don't think these cars aren't safe........Can you call State Farm and tell them your story? If I lost $30K, I probably would have jumped in a lake!

    I am already that much into the 69 El Camaro. That is going to be a fine machine. But yeah I am going to mod the hell out of the 99 camaro too. However, I am going to do budget mods on it. My goal is 400+ hp spending as little cash as possible. I'm hunting used parts only. So far I am doing good.

    Soooo....if any of you have any old parts that you have upgraded and want to get rid of your old stuff cheap, please drop me a pm and let me know. So far I have a Carbon Fiber Lid/SLP TB/SLP MAF/K&N Filter/Magnaflow Cat Back Exhaust/JBA Shorty Headers/Eibach Sportline Springs. Thanks guys.

    We've all done stupid things. I once totaled a car because my friend who drove like complete crap was telling me to slow down. Over and over I told him I'm doing maybe 5 over the speed limit. We had been drinking I was driving he was freaking out. By no means was I drunk but he was. I had 3 beers an hour earlier. The last time I'd been in his Camaro he was doing 100 mph blowing through stop signs on side streets. We got pulled over and he was completely drunk I talked the police out of going to jail. Anyways, I totally snapped. Floored the piece of crap Sentra I was in (I hated that car I just decided you know what screw him and screw this piece of crap car) and took a sharp turn in front wheel drive. Nailed the curb spun around nailed the other side, huge curbs. The little piece of crap flew up into the air, over the sidewalk and a huge bush plus the parking block. Landed smack dab between the spaces and all 4 tires buckled in like the Dalorian on Back to the Future. All 4 tires proceeded to release their air and all the tie rods were bent. I'm like there now stfu because I don't have anything to drive now just stfu. Then I walked home like 30 miles.

    Ahh... you live and you learn.
