Here is the new spoiler location. I was a little upset so I decided to "relocate" it.

HOLY!!!
You are OK, and that's the important.
Thanks for a great turn out Dave, I was kinda scary that no one will come when I just saw you and no one else

Well I will tell the story one more time for anyone who hasn't heard it.

As I got on the QEW Hamilton just after the 403 everyone slammed on their brakes. I found out that Geo's have shitty brakes and the tiny tires don't have that much grip so the tires locked up. I slid for what felt like forever so I decided "F#@k the Geo!" and threw it into the guard rail to slow down and avoid the Cavalier. Well as you can see that it didn't quite work. I'm OK. The Cavalier driver is OK. Thats the main thing. Cars can be replaced, lives can't.

Well I have to put in my $0.02 now. I remember telling everyone on the Niagara Cruise thread to drive under 120km/h to not attract any attention, and before we left Square One I did say to everyone "Follow the green piece of shit!". I take full responsibilty for my actions but it just shows you how fast things can happen. So for future cruises please...I mean PLEASE SLOW DOWN! I'm guessing that it could have been alot worse if I didn't throw my car into the guard rail.

L8R,
Dave

Yeah some ppl were speeding
I must admit I passed 120km/h mark sometimes but not by much.
No balls left for fast speeds.

Also the funnies thing, like whe we heard about the accidnet we pulle dover and decided to go slow. 5mins after that everybody forgot it and were speeding like crazy. Then we saw one more accident. And that it, everybody decided to slow down.

Well I downloaded the pics from my camera but i'm not in the mood for posting all the pics. Well it looked like everyone was kinda pleased (besides the Cavalier driver...dude i'm really sorry). Well look for a new thread tomorrow night.

Dave

Damn guy, even if it IS just a Geo, it still really sucks man, I saw everything right in front of me!! You were braking pretty well, but when your wheels locked, it just kept skidding. *BAM* green and yellow parts flying everywhere!

I really hope everything turns out for you man.


Just outa curiosity, who was the cavelier driver?
