Whoa.... I can't make sense of it, but I'm thrilled your ok. I've been in some horrible accidents, but never as bad as the one you were in.

The biggest bummer is how I'll bet half the freaking world you talk to will say something like "Well you shouldn't have been racing like that," or something because you drive a modded car. What they don't realize is that those of us who spend time with our cars don't drive like insane maniacs because WE LOVE our cars!

I personally think it was an alien spaceship that came down and blasted your car in two for spite.

Don't understand how the car just broke apart like that hitting a stationwagon...looks like being run into by a train or a 18-wheeler or something big.

Well it was getting quite old in 98 (it was an 85 model) I think corrosion had weakened the steel. And the car that I hit was brand new and BIG

If he was doing 80mph and I was doing 80mph we are talking a lot of combined speed. Also if the back of my car had not split off I expect I would be dead as the energy was taken away by the rear splitting away.
