    Lost a good Formula..

    Yesterday my cousins and I were heading out to the Turkey Rod Run out in Daytona and on the way out there on I4 there was a wreck so we got off at 44 and decided to take the back way.. 44 is a looooong open road. nothing on it whatsoever. My one cousin had a 1998 Formula with 27k miles on it.. just a beautiful car. it ran 11.7s even with traction issues. My other cousin has an 02 zo6 and it only has catback but we lined up next to each other on the road and decided to fool around. and the road looked dry but it was just a little misty.. so they hit it from about a 70 roll and we thought for sure the T/A would pull but it didn't go anywhere.. cept closer to the vette and he realized he was just gliding and over corrected it and it went off the road sliding down a hill and smashed a tree and went about 40 feet back in the bushes.. missing a telephone poll by about a foot. Luckily no one got hurt except a bruise on the leg.

    No matter what, glad to hear everyone's ok.



    And these cars need to be respected, speed isn't something to toy with.



    Hate seeing them getting wrecked this way.

    Sad to see. Word of caution, if your story that you have so nicely shared with the WORLD gets back to his insurance company count on a denied claim. Just sayin...

    Sorry to hear about the incident but I'm glad that everyone is relatively okay.

    I've had my stupid moments too. Can't let them get you down, just remember and learn from them. If you get concerned about the possibility of your insurance company using this post for anything, just click the edit button.

    Best wishes.

    That hurts me to see. Glad everyone is ok. Price of doing business when you are fucking around anything can happen. Im not faulting you guys for it. Im tempted to do stupid shit in my car every time I get in it.

    Your cousin probably missed DEATH (phone pole) by 5 feet !!!

    He should maybe go to a chiropractor, just to make sure he ok.

    it was a lot less than 5 feet. it was about a foot to a foot and a half and the part that would have hit the pole was the freshly filled 10lb bottle of nitrous.
