t
mine was an 81 Cutlass or some such. I don't think it would even hit 100mph.

I still crashed it..

Terrible.
Sorry to hear. That is one horrific accident - they were going at warp speed looking at the damage. I rolled a Datsun B210 in my youth. Ironically not wearing my seatbelt saved my life as the roof crushed in but I walked away with minor injuries.

Had a couple of friends die in similar accidents when I finished high school - mostly down here it's V8 Holden Utes that seem to get the young lads in trouble. Young guys with a 5.7 - 6.2L LSx + no weight in the rear without a few bags of cement in the tray, what could go wrong?!

I respect that, but that doesnt excuse driving like a maniac on a public road with innocent people on the road. I just hope the guy you knew wasnt the driver. Shame that 3 people fell victim to another persons reckless behavior.

I feel like there was a similar story when the E39 M5 was brand new too.

Must have been a huge hit for the car to look like that. Have to feel sorry for the clean up crew:/

Right, I wasn't defending whoever's actions got them all killed, just justifying what the 4 dudes in an M5 were doing at 3am.

Same here - had '67 Nova with a straight 6 and three-on-the-tree when I turned 16. Promptly went out one night with a co worker, and wrecked it. Luckily, it wasn't capable of any real speed, and it mainly just consisted of me burying the front end into a dirt embankment. Rebuilt the front suspension and she was good as new.

I am also amazed at just some of the raw hp numbers some of the kids today are playing with. Even in my street racing days of yore, the biggest, baddest cars were probably on 300 hp at the wheels back then.

That's the first thing I thought, in addition to the engine flying out. Just wow!

I agree.
Heck, the car I use mainly for grocery runs twice a week has 300hp.
Just goes to show how far we've gone in the hp game.

Or is that the equivalent to the name "Bob/Billy/William" in Western societies?

I still remember clearly guys I knew in HS (1977) with big block Chevelle drag cars asking me to go with them on Friday nights where they regularly street raced and got in fights and wrecked cars. No thanks. And of course one of them wrapped it around a pole on graduation night.....
