I feel for that white TR with the red interior... I had a hotwheels just like it!

I wonder how the one or two guys that screwed up feel about this. 'Sorry' isn't going to cut it!

^^LOL you've got that right. But did you notice the black 360 with the wing unscathed right in the middle of the action? Either skilled or really lucky. Apparently there were many more cars but some who weren't involved in the accident fled.

Probably for sure? Not like maX cruises haven't had incidents before, a car in front of me just about rolled over several years ago. Then there was the jetta rear-end.

the lone undamaged car probably was due to good driving lessons - track time.

Yea, but considering how many Max cruises there are, and how "spirited" the driving is, I think we do pretty good for having 60-100 BMW's in a string. Mix a retard in a Mercedes in once in a while and things get a little hairy. Plus, I know there have been gardrails kissed (e30), ditches entered (e30), Curb driven directly into (e30) etc, but never anything this ridiculous... yet. Although, I'm sure there was some dumb shit before I came around...

No jinxing, you make your own luck when driving beyond your limits. I've been on several max cruises watching people so proud to be at the front "pushing" and I'm thinking to myself I wouldn't be surprised if they end up in the guardrail or ditch. Then I have people come up to me telling me I'm crazy??? That I was pushing my e30 beyond it's limits when in reality, I wasn't near them. It just shows how much they don't know the limits of said vehicles. I just take it all in stride, as Eddie has and many others, take a few performance driving schools and have your eyes opened!
