    Doubt it is any one we know as it was a high speed crash most likely with Police in persuit. Probably a stolen car. You don't cut a car in two doing a few k's over the speed limit.

    I don't think it was stolen. That area gets a lot of "street racers"...

    Wait n see...

    Still sad to hear, having witnessed myself a GTR wrapped around a pole, not a pretty site :(

    Would that be the blue one that the son took out without dad knowing?

    An Alfa 156 4 door - hope it wasn't the beautiful 156GTA I saw at Bankstown airport yesterday, probably not, as the engine looks like a 4 pot.. Papers say it was 2 foreign students.

    Pretty dumb - wet road, high speed, no surprises at the result.

    Just had a mate over and I showed him that story and pics. :(:(

    He also told me that a few years ago when he was still living in Gympie and working for the Gympie Council, he saw a VS Holden Statesman V8 wrapped around a tree. The car was around 1 metre off the ground, touching end to end around this tree! :eek::eek:

    They predicted the car was doing around 200 km/h as it crashed and all 5 passengers were killed instantly.......of course. :(:(

    Nah, that happened a few months earlier. This was a green car.

    These were P platers(engaged to be married) that clipped a 4wd down Millperra Rd across the road from Bankstown Airport. Apprently they were racing another car that left the scene.

    Here is a pic of the carnage but this is much later, when I drove past it was still wrapped around the pole :( was a few days b4 Xmas as well :(

    What do they say. "If only you could put an old head on young shoulders".

    I'm no saint as many on this forum are as well I am sure. I know I did some silly things when I was young. As you age you mellow. I sum it by saying as a youngster when driving I would wait till I got round the corner before worrying about what could happen. As I got older I now think what could be around the corner before I go around.

    The TAC are always looking at ways of scaring young kids and this picture Speedy is a good example, however the message isn't getting through. When you are young you always think that will never happen to me. Sometimes it does.

    Thats ok I struggled here in Oz. ;) Quick story.

    I used to drive to Sydney a lot and always stopped a few times to rest. I tried to explain to people where I stopped and no one could understand me the way I pronounced it with a strong Kiwi accent (this is a long time ago, now I speak aussie). I said I stopped at "Gun dar gee" (say it as it is spelt). Still no one understood. I said the dog on the tucker box. They said oh you mean Gundagai. :D
