One less ZL1

guy I'm good friends owns a scrap yard here(that is pretty much a f-body/camaro graveyard, they collect them from all over the country and part them out) and this is one of two ZL1s they have got in the past 2 weeks... I don't have pics of the other one yet but he says its almost as bad as this one:

well I know the engine is in the driver's compartment.. so if they did, it probably wasn't good... but I'm thinking not

Ouch some people just do not understand the power these cars have yet another reason why I wish GM offered ZL1 owners the driving school like they did for the ZR1.

well to be honest, this car is not any near as wild as a ZR1... I mean its going to have a hard time with a LS3 Corvette... so I can see why GM skipped the driving school(though I do think its needed on the Zo6, lol)... you can get killed in a Cruze as easy as you can a ZL1... you know, pinning the throttle and losing control quickly and ditching it or something, that is where you can say a person should have had more driving skill... but this crash was at a high rate of speed, driving at those speeds on public roads, once again, you can do that in a Cruze... basically, you can't fix stupid, not even with a driving school

Not sure how fast, but he sure wasn't being smart. Unfortunately for him it seems like the last mistake he will make. Sad to see.

Makes you wonder how many cars have been wrecked. I would say about 1 a week since they hit the streets.

This is just sad. I keep reading about wrecked ZL1s and 13-500s, there is always an excuse for the wreck it's never the driver's fault. Makes you wonder.

That's bad stuff there. Our insurance rates are going to keep soaring at this rate.

Just because you can afford a ZL1 or a GT500, it does not mean you have the ability to drive one. Becareful out there. Everytime there is a new one of these wrecks posted I put the photo as the screen saver on my computer to remind me that on those rare opportunitys I get to drive mine that it just takes an instant to screw up in something this powerful. After personally witnessing a SuperSnake get destroyed in three seconds , yes there is a video, I have a great understanding of how quick things can go wrong. I personally am careful about where I unleash my camaro.

Because ppl post one up everytime something happens, lol. No one posts any other trims as frequent as the ZL1.

You must own one judging by your expertise. If not then common sense would tell you that the handling/speed is not as a Cruze. The tires alone on the ZL1 on dangerous to drive on in cold temps. If your going to compare then start with your ride comparing that to a Cruze. Now THAT my friend would be a situation where you couldn't fix stupid. ZL1 is pretty damn wild but then again you own one, right?

I think the biggest problem with these cars is the people who buy them. What I mean by that comment is having the experience when it comes to having lots of HP. You get someone in a car like this that doesn’t respect the HP under the hood and this is the end result.

This is starting to become a common occurrence with these cars.

Makes me glad that I have owned the cars that I have. I've owned a drag prepped 64 Plymouth Fury that due to skinnies on the front and high HP made this car a handfull to handle. My 69 supercharged Vette was a dream to drive. It had old school handling though and you had to think ahead and manage speed and breaking accordingly. Both my 76 280Z and 2010 370Z where handling cars due to modified suspensions and limited HP. My ZL1 has great handling and impressive HP. I now have 580 RWHP and would really appreciate some professional driving lessons. Was going to go to Watkins Glen this weekend for those but the school was full.

Are you sure that's a ZL1? It has an off-center stripe on the roof and the calipers aren't black.

Plus, my ZL1 has two front wheels, and that car only has one.
