Ok yea you're right this was just a huge mistake it was the truck drivers fault.. he had it in revers goin like 80 and managed to jam it all the way back to THE TRUNK before stopping !! Or ok the vette was driving down the rd too fast swerved to avoid the traffic and creamed the truck! Explain to me how this works..

Because if it was an ice cream truck we could probably assume he wasn't doing 130 mph on the freeway.

i think its pretty funny when you see huge diesle f350s or whatever pulling 4place enclosed snowmobile trailers, doing 90 during snow. then you pass them later and they are flipped in a ditch on the side of the highway.

Sure am ! But if there's one thing i do know how to do well its handle a car but i know better than do it on a Public Highway too !

But on other note... You could part that car out... the rear wheels look ok all the rear lights are good.. ill bet the transmision is still good .. Some motor parts are good... I mean aint much but u could sell some parts..
