My Poor Camaro!

This is what happened on Friday afternoon when some asshole in a suburban ran a red light @ 35-40mph. The car held up amazingly well given the speed. The suburban looked worse. The car looks worse in person, body lines are off on the passenger side too. The guy says the light was green...luckily there were 2 separate witnesses to correct him All parties involved were taken by ambulance, including myself, but I was told the CHP spun the tires a little while pulling my car off the road and was grinning from ear to ear!
Motor and drivetrain seem fine, front wheel is cockeyed and the rest is body damage I think. God I hope they don't total it. If it is indeed totaled....this drivetrain will likely go in a first gen Camaro.

Yeah for first gen camaros Not that I did not like that one, but like Bake said some things can be a bleesing in disguise

Funny thing though, if that accident had of happend around here you would have gotta a ticket for "illegal racing mods" no matter who was at fault .


Glad to hear that you are ok though

Re: My Poor Camaro!

Drive it off of a 7 story building. Make sure that you record it and put it on a DVD for all to enjoy

Damn! Very sad - that has to be a huge bummer. But at least you weren't hurt, were you?!. Still sucks big-time though...

Re: My Poor Camaro!

that sucks soooooooooo much. Love that car. how's the A-pillar, that should be a big part of if they total it or not.

As far as the first gen goes if stuff does end up with you doing that make sure you do some nice suspension work.

Personally I'd like a 78 or 79 myself. But thats just because I had a red hotwheels one when I was a kid (actually still have it and have added an orange one and a neon yellow one and a purple 77 with monopoly stuff painted on it)

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: My Poor Camaro!

NO! I didnt even get to ride in it! Glad your OK though. You got that car at a good price though, hopefully there will be a high insurance pay off. Was the other driver drink/high?
