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?

Maybe you'll be able to find out why the bags didn't deploy

Somebody needs to keep up with the vin number's of these wrecked (totaled)cars that will end back up for sale, and the owner saying it has never had a scratch on it.
