Bye Fellow V6er's

Well, last week I experienced the most traumatic car related experience in my life. Was only driving roughly 20 mph around a 70 degree turn (sign stated to go 20mph on this turn too). It was raining bad just a few minutes before and I hydroplaned and hit a truck coming the other way at 3X mph. The car was completed totaled. I will say this to you all. What a great car. They built this car to be able to take a huge hit. Surprisingly, after the head on collision, I sustained no major injuries. Just a bruise from the seatbelt. Compared to the damage, I felt I shouldn't have lived.

Been here since 2011 and I can say I loved this little v6. Been running consistent mid 13s on stock 19s. Sounded very nice.

Im in the market for a 2011+ v8 so hopefully I can stay on here. If not looks like I may go 335i or 2013 mustang v8. Also been looking at 07 corvette. Any ideas?

Thank. Almost ordered my throttle controller too! lol

The only thing that made it through the accident was the trifecta tune cable. So that is for sale if anyone wants it.

Awe man that's terrible, but most important your ok. What road did you wreck on?

When it's dry out I can hit 90 degree turns going 15-20 and just felt the g force and great traction. Another day I had it in the cool garage for the weekend and went to town. On the way back from a short trip it started to sprinkle and it was about 90-100 degrees outside. Man I hit that same turn and the car slid around every 90 degree turn I made even from a dead stop.

so sorry to hear about the accident. HAPPY as HECK to know all the technology going into the Camaro saved you from any harm. Knowing it saved you, I would recomend staying with another one. 2011 V8 sounds like a nice choice too.

Ouch! Glad to hear you're cool! But I know every time you look at the photos you shake your head to think about all the time you put into making your Camaro your personal achievement and now it's totaled. But I know that 2011 Camaro SS will put a solid grin back on your face!

All I can say is Wow! People may joke about our cars being heavy and whatnot but look. This here is a perfect example as to how the Camaro is a sports car and a safe car! Glad to see you're still walking my friend! VERY few cars would you be able to walk away from a wreck like that. Way to go 'Merica! headed back in the right direction with our auto's!

dang im so glad youre okay! my v6 was also hit last saturday by a suburban. The car isnt totaled but very close. Unfortunately i am suffering from a severe back sprain and I cant work for about a month but Ive suffered back problems often in he past. The car did a great job absorbing the energy from the impact, I only got hurt because I was already hurt lol

Aww man!! So sorry to see this, but very happy you are OK!!

You had your car running fantastic, and I always enjoyed hearing about your times at the track with it, pulling off those times deep into the 13s.

You'll be missed in the V6 crowd....best of luck!

thanks. I was looking forward to the throttle body controller and LMR doing heads and the Hptuner tune suite on my car.

Sadly yall, I wont get a C7. I am only 21 and I dont have enough money for that! I will say this however, the insurance company wrote a hefty check for the car. Glad to see these sell so well! Getting a v8 will be doable now. Ill know exactly by next week.

Hat fact you walked away from that crash is a hell of a testament to the engineers who designed that car the good folks in Oshawa who built it right to keep people like you and I safe. Hope you get another one and keep enjoying a Camaro ride.

Glad you are ok!! You look at those pictures and think no one walked away from that. The camaro is a great engineered car and beautiful as well. With that said I would stick with the Camaro and upgrade to the V8 like you said. You will have to let us know what you decide and pics when you get your new ride. Good luck

May she rest in peace...

Now grab you a lightly used ZL1- these things are selling way under their true value and I predict will be worth much more in a relatively short time .

If you can swing it financially, the ZL-1 is the best bang for the buck.
