Man calls 9/11 hanging onto his bumper

[size=18px]Wild in the streets[/size]
Man takes the ride of his life clinging to rear of stolen car
FLINT - Tony J. Young wasn't about to lose his car again.

His 2003 Ford Mustang Coupe had been stolen before, so when it happened again Thursday morning, Young grabbed the rear spoiler and held on as the thief hit the gas.

Clutching the back of his dark gray Mustang, Young managed to call 911 on his cellphone as the car raced down snowy Flint streets.

Thats crazy. No I wouldnt risk my life for a Mustang. It all really depends on what kind of car I would risk my life to. For the Mazda3 No unless I put lots of money into it.

Why didn't you vote in the poll untouchable?? DO IT!!

I had to say yes because I've done it before. I worked my ass off for my car. I'll be damned if some lazy asshole is going to give me extra work while he makes money off of the car I haven't finished paying for yet!

I've taken some crazy risks before... damn adrenaline! If someone were in the car that I cared about, then hell yes. Otherwise, I would only do it if I felt crazy at the moment, which stealing something from me could very well do. I would get very angry and forget that I'm only human. Of course, at that instant in time, I could argue that I am not human... I become something else.

Oh, and whether or not they have guns is a major influencing factor, too.

No matter how angry I get, I can still make a decent threat assesment. The crackhead that was trying to pry my door open with a pocket knife wasn't a threat

If he had had a gun, I would've let him take the car after I ran away screaming like a school girl that just saw her first horror flick. Better yet, I probably wouldn't have approached at all.

If someone I knew was in the car, I would most definetly do something.. but then I'm risking my life for another person and not the car.
