When they say summer tires they ain't kidding. When I had my new 2005 GTO I ordered it with the performance summer tires. When winter came there was just a dusting of snow on the highway. I was only going about 50mph. And all of a sudden the back tires just broke loose and the car turned completely around backward and I was still going about the same speed. Then it turned straight and headed to ditch full of snow. I was turning the steering wheel but it did nothing, it was like I was in a sled. I ended up there and had a tow truck pull me out. I figured the car was all messed up but after I was able to power wash it and shammy it in a warm garage there wasn't a scratch on it. But I think I needed to change my underwear.

That really is a damn shame. But it at least from the look of that wreck that he was lucky didn't get seriously injured.

Been there! Back 20 years ago,when I was a lotman,I had to take a new Nissan 300ZX to a bodyshop 10 miles away. It had transportation damage,and there was some light snow on the road. I was cruising around 40 mph,driving very carefully. All of a sudden the car did a 360 in the middle of the road . Thankfully i didn't hit anything! Wow! Scared me something fierce.

...unfortunately it's anticipated and expected, I saw many 2002 Camaro SS's totalled out on ebay at that time. I am sure there will be more of these instances. Law of probability.

All that damage and no airbag deployment??? I wonder if this ZL1 was damaged in transit .i.e. the ignition off?
