  1. I was just leaving the monthly cruise down in Puyallup.. I didn't take a picture of the accident on the back of the loop .. It was by VFW hall tonight.. Looked bad, car involved was a Blown or Tunnel Ram early Ford 2dr Sedan.. Looks like it had rear ended and MB SLS AMG .. I sure hope everyone involved is ok...

    Hope he has some seriously good insurance coverage hitting a 200K car in the back is going to cost a ton.

  5. That sounds like 2 seriously HiPo cars. I wonder if they were being Too Fast / Too Furious together.
    I hope everyone can walk away wiser.

    Well pics would be nice as I’m interested on comparable damage. I seriously hope there weren’t any major injuries.

  7. I think it's best not to post photo's of accidents.

    But I do hope the folks involved are not seriously injured. HRP

  8. just out of respect and privacy I didn't snap any pictures. I just hope those involved were OK.. It was a pretty hard lick.. I'm sure other here may have seen it that are on the HAMB.. Hope this won't put a stop to the cruise..

    As long as it was just a case of not paying attention and the guy in the A had insurance it probably isn't much of an issue. If it was a case of "hold my___ and watch this" then it may be a real issue.

    Still I discovered a long time ago on cruise nights or even on road in an old car it is far better to be in front of the fancy sports car with the mega brakes rather than behind them. Plus those super car guys are usually pretty good at defensive driving.

    I agree on the posting of photo's of accidents, but photos of the damage to the on topic vehicle can be educational,
    if nothing else to drive home the importance of seat belts.

    In reality, even though the guy was driving a hotrod, he probably wasn’t paying proper attention to what was in front of him. (Or her).
    Generally the person in the rear of a rearender is at fault. Yes, I hope all were/are safe and came out okay.

    Edit: I don’t like to see pics of accidents, thanks!

  12. so from a co-worker who was at the cruise on Saturday evening..What I was told the guy in the Hot Rod started a burn out ( which the cruise discourages for safety reasons) The throttle stuck open on the car sending them into the off topic car.. he tried getting the car stopped but HP overpowered the brake system.. the co-worker sent me a picture but again out of respect and privacy I deleted it from my phone.. again hope everyone is ok

    In Washington state the law doesn't call them burn outs, they call them Negligent Driving for obvious reasons. I hope no one was hurt more than pride and money.
  14. I'm sure there was tickets written...
  15. Someone's premium just went up. :eek:

  17. Hope nobody was hurt. But if somebody was doing something that stupid, and hit my MB AMG, there might have been at least one person hurt...
  18. If it happened as it was told to @rob-redm ......Ya just can't eliminate stupid! Who does burnouts in an area that can expose other people or their cars to damage!??! I hope no one was injured, but I also hope the M-B owner collects big time! Some 'boys with toys' just can't seem to grow up!!

    I have been to lots of events where , “ kids “ have to do the burn out thing . I’m not into the silliness . I have seen tons of dollars wasted blowing up engines on a dyno and the burnout pit . I’m like really , why ?

    If the fool destroyed my 32 doing this silliness , I suppose at my age , I’d be getting 3 squares and cot for the remainder , choice of green or gray room decor .

    I’m just thankful no one was hurt , this type of action drives a hard bargain to insurance coverages and events location law enforcement .

    Well I went looking for pictures and with some disappointment didn't find any. I'm not looking for blood guts or gore, but as previously mentioned, damage. Bumpers or no bumpers...well who needs those? Seat belts, not as relevant in my books but did it hold up under those collision forces or crumple like a tin can? Besides, if a guy is going to do stupid, maybe for that reason alone picture for the hall of shame would be the reward for earning the title?

    The real damage is to the image of hot rods. Glad no one was hurt but I hope the 'rodder's mates gave them a serve for stupidity.

  22. There's a video on the 'net from several years ago that shows a rod blasting down a road with the back tires spinning, the front tires locked, and it appears the throttle is stuck ... he/she plows along the road then slams into a car. While watching the video, the only thing that crossed my mind was "why didn't they just turn key to off?" I guess some people just panic under pressure.

    I am pretty sure there were plenty of cell phone cams rolling at Puyallup so I'd guess there'll be a video on U-tube soon enough.
  23. First, put it in neutral, second shut it off, third get on the brakes real hard. What is so hard about that ?
  24. I'd be going straight for the key, turning the engine off in gear while my foot is on the brakes. I'd look for neutral later.

    Same stupid thing happened a couple of years ago at a show up the Gorge, I believe Hood River. Some dickhead doing a burnout lost it and crashed into a parked SUV.

    Things happen quick. One time I was with two friends who were a few years older than me. I was maybe 17? Anyways, about 50/60 mph my hood in my pickup pops up. My first reaction I start to hammer on the brakes.
    One of them says “easy, easy let off the gas and watch out the window”. He must of said that several times. My hearts racing, adrenaline was pumping.
    I used to see those guys every few years, I thanked them about that night, their standard reply was “thanks for listening “.
    Never had a throttle stick while driving, I know what to do, but would I do it?

    That doesn’t condone doing something dumb is a public place,though.

    I have a pull to start and a push to stop knob on the dash instead of a key...something to think about

    A couple of weeks ago I heard there was a street cruise up on Main street in the little town I live in. I grabbed the roadster and went to dinner and then figured I would make a pass or two. I wasn't half way down Main before I realized this was not my idea of fun. I bailed and went home.

    Later I heard there were burnout contests in the middle of Main St (1 lane each direction) and crowds of onlookers. The Police responded and blocked off he street and sent people home but some dumb ass on a crotch rocket decided to run form the cops and crashed. DUI.

    Talk about giving a hobby a bad rep. It's a wonder they allow street cruises at all.

  29. As a side note…when you test your throttle return operation have a pal in the car depress the foot feed while you, the owner watch what happens….then reverse positions.
