I have a feeling that "speed was a contributing factor" in this particular accident.

So much power, people need to know how to control it. Yes it's a well built car, allot of drivers have tested that for us. Be safe out there this New Years.

I must say...that is one seriously strong power pole. I'm guessing it just slid right along the inside of the passenger side framerail. Good thing there wasn't a passenger in the car or this story would have ended differently.

Hate to think how much insurance is going to go up for us Camaro drivers in the future.

Seen too much of this stuff already and with folks trying to drive with Summer Only tires I worry about INSURANCE rates going through the roof for this vehicle. Glad noone was hurt eith in the car or an innocent bystander.
