    Hard Top: Bloody hell, what happened with that crash? Looks like a truck drove over you!!

    Brandon: Car slid into a 1 wire fence kinda like the ones they put between highways now to keep cross over accidents from happening.... that wire got caught up in the right front tire and sent us rolling over and over, with the most intrusive damage on my side of the car. Once the a-pillar buckled on my side, my head became a high point and rolls 2,3, and 4 did all the damage to my neck/back/ribs/sternum/head/brachial plexus nerve bundle..
    If you look at that wreck pic closely, you can see the "raised indention" where my head was..... sticking up, just ready to get crushed. I had 2 people in the car.... passenger side of the car held up fabulously, no injuries for passenger, not even a scratch.... drivers side a pillar buckled almost a foot down. If it was build THAT good, that A pillar wouldn't have come down into the cabin and my head wouldn't have been bouncing on the ground.. lol... it was a 98, so no side airbags either (which would have helped as car slid into barrier sideways.. I do agree that if I had been in another small car, like a miata or pontiac solstice or something, I'd be in heaven now.

    Remember this one @GazHyde ? Young Dutch lad that 'borrowed' his Dad's Z and nose dived off a dyke.
    And he survived. Lads on the Dutch Z forum tried to find out if the owner was a member but the story kind of like disappeared......
