Another UK car bites the dust
« on: July 25, 2014, 08:21:44 AM »
Came across this sad sight on the way out last night. UK car which the guy had lost control off when pulling away from the lights and hit a wall.



He was fine but the car will be a right off, bent chassis. Chatted to him for a little bit. Not a member of any club but just liked the cars. This was his second UK one, the first he\'d also written off. He had no idea how rare they are. I suggested to him that he doesn\'t buy another one unless its an import :o
Sorry about the picture quality. The camera on my phone has never been the same since I recently had the screen replaced :(

OMG! sounds like he needs to learn how to drive! writing 1 off bad enough but 2 needs his hands cutting off ! lol his next car should be Toyota Prisus he can write as many of them off as he likes!

Joking aside luckily no one hurt!

Surprised you didn\'t hit him... What an idiot.
It\'s a shame to see UK cars die like this
Turbocharged 192ps RX-8 running Meth Injection on an Adaptronic
Fully Bridgeported 231ps RX-8 stripped for the Track

Ah! Ever the opportunist. ;) A decent engine requiring a new home in a Westy methinks. :yes
Finance dictated it had to go 13 months ago,  after 14 years in an RX8 regretted ever since.

Real shame :(

Bit harsh to be giving him an internet hard time though... (unless he came over as a real k-nob)
