Did this happen to someone here?

Randomly came across this video of this Focus on youtube. Does this happen to be one of you guys? I'd kinda like to know how this went down. Happens at the end.

UPDATE: This is now a place to discuss funny and or tragic engine failures. Funny when its not you; tragic when it's your mortgage payment being ejected through the block!

I don't know, but I was driving behind an Eclipse one night, and he was driving all crazy, and this poor kid, he probably spent his last four paychecks on an intake and exhaust that added a grand total of 1hp to the damn thing, anyway... I'm driving behind him, we both come up to an intersection to make a left, and he's revving it hard in neutral. The arrow turns green and he gets on the gas hard, and then as he shifts into 2nd, you hear a distinct "pop" followed by some awful gurgling and clunking. Some thick smoke starts coming out of his tailpipe, and he rolls to a stop on the shoulder.

I pull up beside him and ask if he wants a ride, even though I think he had just pulled out of his apartment and we were only like a block away. He doesn't roll down his window at all, he just gives me this desperate look. I saw the "my parents are going to kill me" face, and we had kind of a moment there. I shot him a look like "sorry dude" and drove off.

Moral of the story, hooning is expensive.

At the end of the video the car dies. Not every video must end with an explosion.

But is says engine blows. They just killed it probably let off the clutch wrong or something. I heard a engine blow and I seen and heard tranny explode too, nothing like that happened in that video.

Haha, that is pretty much it, same model car, same terrible sound, same pissed parents! ;) The dude in your vid sounds like he has (had) a legitimately fast car though. I think I hear a turbo in the beginning.

The BMW wasn't racing.
The car appeared to be a 2nd gen DSM. So it's to be expected it'd blow up.
