Anybody seen this yet? Dave and bro crash
 
Saw it while checking the e21 forum at bimmerforums. Apparently someone hit Adam who than hit Dave while they were at bav auto show in Conneticut. Scroll half way down the page for a pic of Adams damage. Hope they are ok and dont mind me posting this. The guys said nothing about any damage to them just there cars.

I can't beleive how fast this spread already....Dave and Adam arn't even home yet.
Rob and I are still down here in Maine for the night, Dave and Adam left a few minutes ago to drive home. And yes it's true, but no one hit Adam from behind. I was driving behind Adam when it happend, so no-one drove into him. It was a complete accident and could have happend to the best of us. It was a slow hit comming up to a yellow light, and some quick braking on Dave's part to stop for the light, and some distracting scenery led to the hit.

It was only about 10-15 mph, but the damage was extensive, and While I watched this unfold in front of my eyes it was like it happend in slow motion. It really hurt to see.

You guys wouldn't beleive it....it was just a bad day all together.

I will let Dave and Adam elaborate on the story.

Other than that, it was a good trip and an amazing turnout at the show. I will post pics later.

I also think props should go out to both Adam and Dave, for being true enthusiasts, and actually continuing on and entering into the show, where they received some of the most attention of the day, thanks to their amazing if not sad story of the road trip to Bav Auto.

But for now let us bow our heads for our two fallen bimmers. I think both should be repairable though.

:( Glad to they are ok. Hope everything works out alright. At least the Ottawa BMW's got a lilttle bit of recognition and fame at the show. *shiner*

Man, that's too bad... The thread title scared the crap out of me. I'm really glad they're okay.

paul christians 10-03-2005 12:57 AM

Man that does suck. But the main thing is you guys are alright.

Justin e36 10-03-2005 05:50 AM

ouch.. I hope all is well with them, and they do repair their cars.

This one is going to need a new fender, bumper, bumper shock, nose panel, headlight, turn signal, and rad support (or the old one looks like it can be bent back into shape. Possibly a new hood too.. can't see from the pic. damn!

Dave and Adam your bimmers are in our hearts. Praying for a full recovery

jeffrie 10-03-2005 07:11 AM

Well this super sucks.
Damage on Adams isn't so bad mostly bolt on parts that got smashed. Nothing $$$ can't fix.
Dave's E30 ...... Not much just bolts on the rear of them, hope his bumper took most of the damage for his sake.

Holy Crap man, that F*ing sucks..especially it happening in the states....Glad to hear you guys are ok talk about bad luck....I almost went down....Could have happened to anybody.....
