Ultimate Performance modification! (PICS)



Not really. Car looks like it was stepped on and squished sideways.

Avoiding road debris on I95 at 65mph. Swerve->Spinout->under Semi->Wheels over car->Slam to sidewall.

I'm lucky to be alive. My trusty blue focus has been demolished :-( :-( :-(

Had to be pulled out through the roof. Not a broken bone in my body. Just scratches from the shattered windows.

Time to go car shopping for a focus. Yes another one. I have too much money in performance modifications to let the insurance company take it away from me.

Definitely going to buy a stick. I don't know how to drive stick but I'm ready to learn.

Cops told me next time to just plow through road debris. $200 paint and fiberglass repair is better than totalling a car
